Anyway, I am gathering money in order to buy the MS Windows Vista Ultimate Edition. What's the best way to do that: -Should I simply buy the Ultimate Edition and install it over the...

Vista on an Abit Fatal1ty AN9 32X by Mike Bernstein
Has anyone managed to install Vista on an Abit Fatal1ty AN9 32X motherboard based PC? If so, was it an upgrade from XP or a clean install? I have made several attempts to upgrade XP Pro to Vista Business without success. I have had many BODs and once past those, and on the final setup screen, Vista has told me on two occasions that it cannot configure a system component (without saying...

Express upgrade from XP Pro to Vista by Chuteuk
Just got my new HP Compaq pc with XP Pro pre-installed. It's fully elgible for a vista upgrade to the buisness edition. But it's for the familly pc? I want home premium instead . Surely this must be possible somehoe, it won't let me swap on the upgrade website. Why do we want the buisness edition? Any help on how to solve this would be great. Thanks! ,chuteuk

Am I getting this right?! by Greg
If I'm hearing things correctly, Microsoft has mangled the hell out of the install, so the upgrade version of Vista will only install if the program finds an INSTALLED version of Windows (qualifying product)? Any technician with an ounce of experience knows it's ALWAYS better to do a clean install, if it's a viable option. So if I'm getting this straight, we can no longer pop in our...

Samsung HD300LJ SATA Drive - Cant't load Vista or WinXP (now fixed - almost - maybe) by BobS
This is just a follow-up as to what I did to get Vista/WinXP to load onto this Samsung hdd. Initial problem was I could not load any operating system on this drive but it tests fine, has been partitioned and formatted under WinXP Pro and Vista. I can use the drive as storage - works great. Drive was made a Basic drive - never dynamic. Whether the drive was installed by itself or with...

I know there are several topics on this already, but I'm reading things that are seeming to give different answers and I'm confused. I have Vista Home Premium on my computer already (came that way when I bought it) and want to install Windows XP as well (some programs for work don't work with Vista yet). Do I have to get rid of Vista first or can I just partition my hard drive and add...

All went by quickly until it got to update 7. I have now been waiting 4 hours to access my computer and all I see...
