  1. I understand that problem. You can't force them to compressed because these files are very important files you have no acces to. But the side affect is that virusses can't either. It will save around 1,5 GB in use. I discover that compressing some files on my SCSI setup dramaticly decreases loading time. OpenOffice and UT2004 have the most advantage of compressing and media is useless to compress. Don't force them. Just my 2 cents.
  2. Done so far. Yesterday I made a Vlited image with SP1 and all drivers need te be included. The Install.wim is only a merely 1466,64 MB in size of 2704 MB after slipstream. Nearly the half of alle files where deleted and most of them where languages I never use. Can I speak Chinese or even read simple Chinese? No, so why using this 344 MB of unused bloatware? The only risk of a Vlite setup are some programs and updates. Run as Administrater works only when shortcuts are on their original place. I kept Media Center, but whithout sample media and it work like a charm. Slipstreaming costs exacly o
  3. All usefull hints, but some things are overseen 1. Disable any hardware in device manager you don't use 2. Boot with tracing and watch the file where it is slowdown 3. Try the good old bootvis Bad sectors where reallocated and this jopb won't last 5 minutes each time?
  4. First code merge with the old one and override settings, but don't remove any which not exists in your file. Also add NIC if possible or others have free access when your CD spreads by accident?
  5. Thanks people, I've decided to use lossless audio. WMA lossless. I'm sorry this this known dagmatism, but uncompressed, the sounds are far more better, warmer en a good higharea. My headphone is already 8 years old and in these times this one is the best available. The Sony 9000 (pure natural meterials and shells from special wood. What I hear in 320 kbps MP3 is still some artefacts and not always, but the solo's don't came out naturally. WMA lossless is not that bad. The ratio is between 40-70% compressionsize of the original wave. (lossless) Maybe it is between 2 ears, but uncompressed sound
  6. Hmmm, how usefull? If I press CTRL+ALT+DEL the taskmanager comes on screen en when the system locks up, it will reboot. In Vista I get a blue screen with options (no BSOD). The on-screen keyboard could even catch any taskmanager. What do you properly mean? When the mousecursos freezes, mostly the whole system is freezed, no taskmanager could help. No mouse=no windows for the common? I'd rather rely on the kernel protection and DEP. I've never had an issue where taskmanager couldn't be started or as above, the system reboots utterly. It is Microsoft and Vista may be reasonally good, but it coul
  7. Vlite approaches Nlite in lay-out and this is indeed great news But, is it a trial for 30 days?
  8. Yes, more guts I ask myself why he want to run Vista on a 256 MB machine and to make it worst. There's somewhere a topic from somebody to ask to install Vista on a 128 MB machine I know that experiment with Windows XP 12 MHz clock speed 20 MB RAM 63 MB Install size This is the record. Are you try to break it Keep this in mind: On that machine, Windows XP tooks 47 minutes to boot up in a 'usable' state. It tooks 23 minutes to open Word and 11 minutes to open IE6 and the internetspeed whas below a 14K4 modem (nah, have 100 Mbit from Borft UT Twente) I shame myself that I recommend to use
  9. October 23, 2007 is the link dated from. I seriously discover this bug a year earlier and I'll explain what happening. Since the introduction of Vista Microsoft decides to use a nieuw kind of logging transactions by th ACID method. That means Vista have to use TxF NTFS rather than the old system from XP, but that older system is more compatible with another software than TxF. The bug; when Windows XP accesses the partition, the TxF becames out of sync and the volume is dirty. The shadowcopies from system restore are lost. This issue is due to the TxF acces that only Vista could handle poperly.
  10. Jeez,, what kind of mizérè could happen? Yes. installed Vista yesterday again after killing it. Why? I will never give up. The problems I encounter with Vista are in real time not such bad as I guess. I'll give it a very last try. Oké, maybe I can help some. I'll post my update history and with this list I had no issues. Compaire it to yours and it should be exact the same. Second, check your eventviewer and post these errors, why? because you could look with each other is the errors where common! Like the update list here Just a hint AMD64 3800+ 4x1 GB DDR1 ATi X1950XT ASUS A8R-MVP (A mirac
  11. It's not an aero issue, it's an explorer issue. If you have good speed in other apps and don't want sp1 then try downloading KB941673 from somewhere like _thehotfix.net_ and apply the setting shown at the bottom of this page. Thanx for the idea, realy thanks, but I don't use Vista anymore on this machine. Vista is the first OS which want to page out heavely, 4096 MB or not. Is it normal that Aero must rebuild and Vista must load everything back in memory from the pagefile while I won't pass the 3 GB after a game? Plenty of room and Vista should page out agressive. At first, Windows Vista HP
  12. Hmmm, even considered why you can't get SP1 installed on a Vlited Vista? Even considered why you can apply SP2 for X64 on a Nlited edition with ease? I won't be nasty for Vista users, but on a modern harddisk. 10 gig over 50639 files over 10.000 maps, a cheap IDE harddisk has a very hard job to do. The average filesize is so small that there is more wasted space on a Vista default volume with 4 KB clusters than here on my 32 KB cluster NTFS with X64 including all patches. Vista will badly crash on NTFS when changing the logfile from 64 Mb to 4 MB. Under X64 no issue. The logfile is the most
  13. If you want real high quality choose a lossless format like WavPack, or there is one real good lossy format called Musepack. BTW guys, I thing, the best choice to talk and READ about that would be HydrogenAudio forum... May I hook in on a positive manner? The samples are real HD audio and I refuse to convert it to 16-bit. Some samples were indeed from a 16-bit 44.1KHz source, but what is the trick? First Cooledit samples it up to 32-bit. No qualitygain, but here it comes: Most producers has clip the audio and compress it beyond 44.1 KHz sample boundairy. When using the 6th order filter (only
  14. Much better and I won't threat you, but Luftwaffe gaves some nigative image for some. That is not your fault, because you use the name you like, but for other people, do you understand?
  15. I don't advice to use the Service Pack RC1. release software is good enough to be stable, but far enough for real time purposes. I've used it for three weeks and I encounter so many problems that I don't think about it to used it furthermore. Window Vista is such heavy and in 'my' eyes it won't be fair for older systems prior to 2007. On a Core 2 Duo it looks nice, but how fast is a Core 2 Duo with Windows XP bij example? Only for Direct X10 you should need a bloating OS "sorry for that', but these are all experiences I've had with Vista and I'm not that kind of stupid to let it run instead
