Vista Upgrade Advisor

  harry12 17:56 03 Mar 2007

I fitted new Pentium D915 processor,Asrock ConRoe945-DVI motherboard and Asus AX3000SE-X graphics card. Ran Vista upgrade advisor and was informed my best choice for Vista was Ultimate. I bought Premium and installed it. By the way, installed with no trouble. On running Windows Experience Index I found my base score was 2.1 this was the graphics card, this means I cannot run Aero and some features might not be availiable. Why the wrong information from Upgrade Advisor?

Card is Radeon 300, I know its not the best but I dont play games. My question was why the wrong information.

Is it the Radeon X1300 you mean? Did you download the latest vista certified ATI driver for your graphics card from their website?

How much memory does you Graphics card have?

Card is Radeon X300 as in Totally-Braindeads post with 128mb. Have downloaded latest drivers. But the question still remains, why Vista Upgrade Advisor says I can run Ultimate but Premium will not install fully.
Thanks to all for your interest, seems graphics card will have to be upgraded. Must say that even without Areo I like Vista.
