utw-Mephisto Posted December 17, 2007 Share Posted December 17, 2007 (edited) Hardware : Intel Quad 66008GB RamVista Business x64MoBo: Asus Extreme StrikerFirst I had the problem to install any version of Vista using all 8GB of Ram (2GB sticks).The googling for days shows that there is apparently a bug which makes it almost impossible to install Vista on more than 3GB Ram .. although not everybody seems to have the same problem.Anyway .. installation (any version) also failed with just one 2GB stick ... The only way I was able to install Vista Business (was the only license I had that time) was using 2x1GB ram sticks (same make), run windows update and patch and then reboot using the full 8GB ..Right .. so Vista now runs rock solid since then... Now I bought a Ultimate license to use it was Media Center as well .. Running upgrade .. finished successfully ... reboot ... bluescreen ...Only 2x1GB Ram sticks .. bluescreen ... rollback option (wonder why they put the option in the boot menu lol) .. reboot .. solid ...Well ... Question now is whether this has something to do with the MoBo .. consdeirng that all the available driver are almost a year old ...
