  1. I agree aviv00, win7 is more like vista second edition, its just ms is calling win7, and not vista SE. (am sure u knw why ms wouldnt link vista name with win7)

    Anyways, we will have to wait for beta 1 to see any performance increase over this pre-beta, if there is more speed compare to this pre-beta build, then we can expect more tweaks and more speed in beta 2. And the same performance of win7 can also be gained with vista sp2 (am pretty sure)

  2. if vista sp2 or server sp2 vs win7 have the same performance i wont be surprise

    I have a strong feeling, vista sp2 and server sp2 will have very similar performance to windows7.

    Vista SP2 will have the tweaks microsoft applied to windows 7 to make it more reliable and run faster (so similar performance compare to win7). But still we will have to wait for the final results when the final version of sp2 releases, and by then we will have windows 7 beta 3 (hopefully).

    I think Microsoft as usual thinking bout money money :P , and sp2 vista will be the same as windows 7, but microsoft will charge full amount for windows7 jus for few extra features, eg touchscreen stuffs..

  3. ur vista is sp2 beta ?

    im wondering if sp2 fix the os to max performance

    No, its vista sp1, coz there is no vista sp2 64 bit yet, and i only use 64bit OS, (maybe SP2 x64 is out now, nt sure)

    I think sp2 does fix those common performance issues, and adds alot reliability to vista os.

    Going to wait for sp2 x64 before i do vistax64 vs win7 x64

    did u test server 2008 vs 7 too ?

    anyway i still love server edition much less bloated with stuff

    and the os already tweaked to which i need

    No time yet, going to test server 2008 vs win7 soon. Am pretty sure it will be faster than server as well, and if it is then, for the first time am going to say "Congrats Microsoft"..lol :P

  5. i tested boot-time's win7 with 512mb ram and 1024mb ram ;o its the same

    50second [ full screen vmware winamp runing on background]

    I also tested it with 2gb ram win7 x64, boot time was 45 sec. But the overall peformance of win7 (non-vlited) compare to a vista (almost everything removed) is awesome. Windows 7 is not even a beta 1 release, and the performance its showing is very promising.

  6. I can't seem to get it to work even though I meticulously followed FireGeier's guide. I always get an error message of Vista not being able to locate the boot-critical drivers. Is there another method of integrating Vista drivers into my image? I don't really want to use the Vlite option.

    Great driverpacks for vista..check it out


  7. The new compatibility update KB957200 is failing to install. I suspect because I removed Windows Mail. Anybody else have any experience or advice?

    same here, i removed windows mail, and few other stuffs, and had the same problem. Then i installed vista again, this time without removing anything but just disabled few uneeded services, and it worked fine

  8. but the folder icons just don't match the vista theme. they are tooooo bluish.

    Theres many themes out there, to make it match with vista themes. Am using a theme, downloaded from devianart, that matches these icons :)

    Look in deviantart for vista themes, theres plenty of them

  9. People who may have been experiencing BSOD with their vista lately, Please read below! I thought i let everybody know this

    Quoted from foxs extreme tech

    I feel it's my duty to warn you all that KB954211 which is a kernel update is causing some problems in some circumstances. My guess is that it's hardware related as it only affects 1 out of 4 of my Vista machines and it affects my Vmware 6.5. On Vmware 6.5, I've encountered the dreaded BSOD after installing Vmware tools. On my main machine, an old pre-SP1 issue has resurfaced. After resuming from deep sleep, I have no internet connection and Windows claims I have no network cable plugged in until after I reboot. I also will be looking at a clients machine tomorrow experiencing random BSOD's after yesterdays updates. I have to believe at this point that it is driver issues with the new kernel. Any other feedback would be greatly appreciated!

  10. Couldnt say exactly which registry key from Wima did it, but the I've got the Hauppauge PVR150 working on Windows 2008 x64 with GBPVR. Quality isnt too great, and switching channels is slow, but that might be GBVR.

    thx for the keys Wima! Will be trying Mediaportal somewhere in the future, if I run into the Teletext issue, I'l report back here.

    Does this require the digital BDA patch and all of the Vista files, or does it just require the registry settings posted here? Thanks.

    It requires the BDA digital patch and also this registry settings as well. (Registry settings required only if your using analogue)


    Great job, you got the analogue to work, and also figured out the registry settings as well :thumbup

  11. Some really flashy icons for vista. They look awesome, as i am currently using them.

    I organized all the icons to its correct resources and its icongroup numbers, and still working on it... More to come..

    Enjoy this cool icons :)

    NOTE: Some old icons you will see, are from Vize project by xpero, i just replaced most of them, added a few more icons, and also EDITIED some icons to match vista.

  12. Windows Vista Ultimate x86 32

    I'm trying to build a SP1 Vista Ultimate x86 64.

    After starting vLite, if I browse to locate the directory where I have copied the Vista Ultimate x86 64 DVD files, I receive immediately an error message 0x8007000B with a debugging window below.

    Any idea on how to have this fixed ?


    Install WAIK, and then copy the 32Bit Version of the wimgapi.dll from the WAIK installed folder into your vLite folder.
