  1. I have heard reports of people using Alcohol 120% in Vista but i cant remember where.
  2. Have you tried XP compatibility mode?
  3. In Windows vista there is no option that I can easily find yet to view hidden files and boot.ini is hidden so the attributes cannot be easily changed. Also if you edit it my way then there is no problem with having to change the attributes as windows lets you edit it within this dialog. Yes - I changed that number in the parenthesis so that windows is now my default OS. Its works and thats all I care about.
  4. These might also help ATI Display Drivers nVidia Display Drivers
  5. To make it so that windows is default - This is how I did it. Control Panel -> System (or right click computer) -> Advanced -> in the bottom section Startup and Recovery Settings, press Advanced -> you can change the default OS here and also change the boot.ini -> in Vista i couldnt edit boot.ini directly and if you have problems with doing it this way, make sur e you are in vista safe mode. Thats how I did it. Also this is my boot.ini so you can return it to the way it was before [boot loader] timeout=20 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(4)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows Longhorn" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /USENEWLOADER This may fix your problem.
  6. I have a solution for you. This is how I did it. Control Panel -> System (or right click computer) -> Advanced -> in the bottom section Startup and Recovery Settings, press Advanced -> you can change the default OS here and also change the boot.ini -> in Vista i couldnt edit boot.ini directly and if you have problems with doing it this way, make sur e you are in vista safe mode. Thats how I did it.
  7. Ok, I have Vista - Ive tried it out, but when i get to that time when I'm too frustrated with it not doing everything I want it to do (yes it is a beta after all) - what is the best way to remove it? Ive heard that the boot loader is hard to change. I have it on another hard drive currently. I guess i could just format that drive and then change the boot loader some how (seen it elsewhere in these forums) EDIT: I have found the solution to my problems - Control Panel -> System (or right click computer) -> Advanced -> in the bottom section Startup and Recovery Settings, press Advanced -> you can change the default OS here and also change the boot.ini -> in Vista i couldnt edit boot.ini directly and if you have problems with doing it this way, make sure you are in vista safe mode. Thats how I did it.
  8. Check it out here - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1840816,00.asp Has some great info and a good look at whats to come and whats not to come.
  9. maybe reinstall the sound card drivers with windows xp compatibility mode?
  10. Thing is the OS will most likely be released when people will have better systems - 1 year is a long time in the computing world.
  11. Why is it that hard to buy a DVD Drive? If you had internet capable of downloading vista you should have enough money for a DVD drive - they are so cheap these days.
  12. Thanks alot, thats what i shall be doing when the SP arrives. Lets hope they dont delay it anymore
  13. According to: http://www.microsoft-watch.com/article2/0,...,1622962,00.asp SP2 will come on the 4th of Aug, a bit of a wait but im sure it will be well worth it.
  14. Like alot of you, i will be doing a fresh install when SP2 comes out. I have my unnattended WinXP PRO cd ready for slipstreaming. What i want to know is how should i partition my drive? I have a 60 gig and a 120 gig. Im going to be installing XP on the 60 gig and i want to know how i should partition it. I have been told that i should leave 30 gig for XP, 2 gig for page file and 20 or so gig for other stuff, but my problem is that i have also been told that i shouldnt put the page file on a partition on the same HDD, i would like to clear this up and see what you recomend. And my final question, should i use the WinXP partition thing that comes up when i install? or use something else. P.S i know what filesysyem to use, just asking bout partitioning
