IF I TRY A VISTA UPGRADE, WILL IT WORK?. IF ANY OF YOU HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM AND FOUND A WAY TO GET VISTA ON , PLEASE HELP. my components are: Antec Nne Hundred EVGA 680i sli socket LGA775 intel core 2 duo E6600 EVGA 8800 ultra 4 gigs of ddr2 pc6400 ram WD 150gig Raptor X Maxtor 500gig Thermaltake toughpower 850Watt PSU PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

disconnet the other drive and install vista on your raptor 1st. it should install fine.and then you could connet the second drive.worked for me.
