gizmoHas anyone installed this on their main yet? I'm going to this weekend, possibly tomorrow. This way I can get things ready if it goes fubar no me, or isn't compatible or causes issues with my currect programs/games.

I was reading an artical on 1up.com, and most games seam to work with Vista, they had few problems, but they did notice drops in frame-rate. Apparently it works wonders with WoW though.

Also, I wouldn't install it as your main OS, people have said it's not stable enough to use every day.

Does anyone know how to do a dual boot with it? I have XP on the 74GB Raptor and Vista on a 50 GB partition on my 120GB SATA drive. The raptor is set as master and the 120gb is set as slave.

Check BIOS settings? So It's set to read the CD on boot up / to make the computer read the CD first.

Okay, I'm having a slight problem with downloading.

I've done it twice and both times it has stopped saying the file is complete at 2GB.

When the DL starts it says 3200.1 MB, so has anyone got any ideas?

Just a note, only use the 64-bit edition if you have a 64-bit processor.

Just to make sure that everyone knows.
