Hello there guys, Sorry if I wasn't on lately but I have been extremely busy installing Vista Business Edition on my Alienware 2650P laptop (from 3-4 years ago) rather than Boot Camping it with my black MacBook and I finally got it on that durn PC. I found that the 160 GB couldn't be read completely as there was a 48-bit addressing limitation on that particular model. But I got 127 GB total on it which is to be expected from my speedier Seagate drive (replacing a Travelstar 40 GB slow as heck). I had to install Windows 2000 SP4 first before applying the Business Edition upgrade (free version from the powertogether promotional). Everything went rather smoothly and Vista was awesome at identifying all of my drivers for video card and sound without a hitch. In fact, I am glad that it is on right now. However, I went to test the online activation and it failed completely. I had to call in Microsoft for what seemed to be a 36 digit activation number which I hated but glad that I managed to do it now . I installed Picasa and Adobe Photoshop CS2 without any trouble (had to change the date to now because it kept on saying 1998 for some odd reason). Everything was rather fast and I was glad. However, when I went to get the Vista Experience Score, I found that Vista rated my laptop as a 1.0! WTF??? Seriously, that's an insult to my Alienware laptop which is still top of the line with a P4 chip, etc. etc. What's really startling was that I found that my graphics card which was a ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 (same as the Powerbook G4 15") got a 1.0 rating which was why my Experience Score was so low. Okay, I can't run Aero but I can't believe that Microsoft would afford to call my Radeon 9700 as a separate (not integrated mind you) graphics card a piece of junk? I don't like the Vista scoring system but everything runs smoothly so far in fact. No hitchs on installing although there is a slight lag on some of the fancier graphics stuff. The design is cooler than XP but the OS doesn't seem to be as snappy as before when I had XP on my 40 GB old drive. Oh well, just wanted to tell you guys that I just joined the Vista bandwagon. It's not as bad although I can't still get over the fact that Microsoft rated my Alienware laptop as junk??? WTF??? Oh well.
