  1. vista service pack 2

    Woohoo, I beat a supermod I was delaying a fresh vista reinstall waiting for SP2, but now it turns out it does not have a integrate option
  2. vista service pack 2

    well, it's public now lol
  3. Vista crashes after update

    After updating SATA driver to the Dell version (which I thought I already had) I was able to install the update
  4. Vista crashes after update

    Didn't work. I've updated drivers, no dice, still crashes. I decided to install updates one by one and found out that KB943899 is the culprit. It's supposed to be a reliability update! What a load of crock, it fubars my Vista installation instead of making it more 'reliable'. Jeez! Edit: I've done some research, apparently MS replaces Intel SATA AHCI driver with that update, and it crashes on reboot on notebook drives (dell in particular). WTF was MS thinking when designing such an update?
  5. Vista crashes after update

    Thanks for the suggestion. It's a Dell notebook, and all drivers installed are from Dell web-site, except for graphics, which is nvidia (I have nvidia graphics chipset, 8400gs). I guess I could swap back to dell nvidia driver and see what happens Hopefully, it'll fix the problem
  6. Vista crashes after update

    any suggestions for a fix? I had another go at these updates, still have the problem. Even safe mode bluescreens and reboots. WTF did MS do this time?
  7. January 8th Windows Vista Updates

    I've installed these updates w/o a problem but computer won't go back to windows after reboot... Flashes blue screen at Vista load screen and instantly reboots itself. Had to use Vista CD to roll back the changes to get back in
  8. Vista crashes after update

    I've run repair before going into safe mode, so I've killed all the updates... Not sure if I want to try to install them before more ppl install them. If it's widespread issues, we'll hear more of it
  9. Not a fan of vista sorry.

    On my Dell, I don't have much crap... maybe because I've reinstalled windows from scratch BTW, I don't feel either way about Vista or XP, both serve me well
  10. Hey there, did anyone else experience crash with Vista at boot? I've installed today's updates, and after rebooting the system, I found that vista would not load, no matter what. It flashes a blue screen during load (fraction of a second, couldn't read the error message) and then reboots the computer. The only way to get back in is to roll back the updates using Vista CD repair function. I have Vista Home premium (dell notebook). Any suggestions?
  11. Thanks op! Although a little bit of constructive criticism - I'm sure this method works for you but for others, with other Intel chipsets and drivers this may not be the best way. Also, note that this works for RAID setup just as well for the ACHI setup. In my case, I had raid and modified the hardware ids to match the ones in the driver's txtsetup.oem file (I did keep everything else the same). So, with the latest F6 Intel driver, I have the following: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2821&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2682&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2681&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C3&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C6&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C1&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C5&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2652&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2652&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2653&CC_0106 = "iaStor" Worked for me, on Asus P5W DH mobo with Intel 975 chipset (ICH7). Might help those, who had errors with the ops suggested setup.
  12. Linking 2 Nvidia Cards?

  13. Linking 2 Nvidia Cards?

    actually, Nvidia's SLI is a different technology from Alienware's implementation. Alienware works with ANY pci-e videocard, and it's a external solution (i dunno, some adapter or something); while Nvidia's SLI is native. Appears, all latest gen pci-e nvidia videocards (6800 & new 6600) include sli connector. By default, nvidia's solution is better because there is less overhead, and it will work with any mobo that has 2 pci-e slots but with future ones only (like nforce 4). Right now, only high-end intel server mobo has those 2 slots. Hopefully, early next year u would be able to afford cheapo sli with 2 6600's that would yield 512mb videomemory and about 16-18k in 3dmark03. with 6800 it'd be faster but much more expensive Oh, and doesn't this belong in a different forum?
  14. Time to update the slipstream guide - Service Pack for Office 2003 has been released!!!
  15. Hey, now that the final DirectX 9.0c has been released, how do we get it to install silently? Any suggestion? Do we need to hex-mod it again, or some switches would work with it? thanks!
