First Experience with Vista the killer

Ken J

Recommended Posts


I had my first experience setting up a vista machine Sept 2. I had such a enjoyable experience

of 4 hours pounding my head against the desk, wishing to get hold of programmers at microsoft

to make sure they could not pass their genetic code on etc etc etc. Next day their I am,

Flat on my back in intensive care with a heart attack. Just got out today (Sept 8).

So Now I know the truth about Vista. ITS A KILLER. Could it be charged with attempted murder.

Go see your cardiac specialist before working with Vista.

Also have a pillow handy on the desk. your brains don't rattle as much.

Ive been using Vista since a few months after it came out, at first i was sceptical and kept xp on my machine but after only a week or so i re-installed with out xp with out any issues. I cant see why there is that many people having problems with it, out of the box it is stable on most upto date systems.

Hello Ken!

Please post a detailed accout of what kind of PC you have, and the problems you had; that way, many people here can help you.

Believe it or not, I actually had to return an Atari game, back in the day--as it was causing my heart to beat too fast! But Doom (the old version) only sends chills up my spine!

Get Well!!!

omg, what a useless bashing post. What's your problem in detail?

I think he already posted it, although there's not much we'll be able to do for it on msfn:

Ken, I empathize, sympathize, and any other 'ize you can think of.

But, I have to say, as an old time PC tech that managed to live thru Windows 3.0, 95, 98, 98/SE, ME, XP and now Vista that the success is always in the details.

The worse thing you can do is try to install Vista on a PC that was never designed for it and doesn't have the horsepower to run it. It takes about four times the resources to run Vista as to run XP, for instance.

I've done a cold install of Vista Ultimate on two PC's so far, for testing purposes.

One PC was built with Vista in mind and the install went off without any problems at all.

The second PC (if you can really call it that), was a Dell XPS-400 with only 512 megs of ram and a mediocre processor.

Dell won't release the SATA2 drivers for that PC so I couldn't install XP. So I tried Vista Ultimate and you could have knocked me over with a feather,,,,,the dang thing loaded just fine.

Vista does come with it's own SATA drivers....not so with XP. I stuck in another gig of ram and Vista is humming along just fine on that PC. It's for OS testing only and not for gaming or Video Editing. I'm sure it would fall on its butt if I tried to do any of those things.

I'm having great success in beating Vista down to size and making it run a lot more efficiently than it does 'out of the box'.

Sorry for the long post......now what was the topic?
