Vista Install Success

Just thought I might as well post this as it might give people confidence who are about to do the same over the next few weeks.

Today I successfully did a clean install using the RTM version on my system consisting of:

P4HT 3.0Ghz
2GB RAM
ATI X300 128MB

It's currently running like a dream and taking up about 15GB of hard disk space. It's also running Aero fine.

The CPU isn't actually being used as much as I thought Vista would hit it and it seems to use about 25-30% of my installed RAM.

And just to add..

Total install time was about 30 minutes

*wails in frustration*

*goes off muttering about lack of Nvidia raid drivers*

Nice one.

All the vista drivers will be shipped with the operating system disk, for this one;-)

Glad it went so well for you, Pyroxide.

One of the advantages of not using RAID.

I've never been able to get my head around it!
