The ONLY game I can't run in 2008 server is HALO 2 - how is that for ironic,
MS's app is the only one I can't get working. COD4, MOHA, Bioshock, Crysis,
UT3, Q4, D3 etc etc all work great. Anyone have a guess why HALO2 won't
work. I changed DEP for just MS essentials. The game crashes during
initial startup - as the light beam hits the H in HALO2.
would really like it if there was a newsgroup for Halo2 PC as well.
As soon as I start Halo2 I get the following

I'm using the latest drivers for my 8800GT, I have two Gigs of memory and
every other game I play COD4, Bioshock, Crysis etc all play fine. Just
this game gives me trouble.
I wanted to see how the graphics were for some of my games that run great in
XP so I tried Vista tried Vista w/SP1, tried Vista with SP1 and just about
every feature turned off. WOW - VISTA IS SLOW and I'm not talking about
gaming, I'm talking about booting up, shutting down, copying files on the
hard drive, copying files to the network, ANYTHING. My goodness it is bad.
So I read a lot of web pages about Windows 2008 running well which
surprised me since 2008 has a lot of the same code ad Vista SP1. Since I
like learning things and since I might have to support some 2008 servers I
decided to give it a try. WOW- 2008 is PEPPY - seems to do everything as
fast as XP. I went ahead and installed sidebar gadgets, the aero
interface - everything I threw at it didn't phase it. It uses up a lot of
memory like Vista but I'm not seeing my processor going crazy like Vista and
my hard drive isn't being thrashed.
I really really wish MS had made Vista perform as Windows 2008 workstation -
I think I would have installed it on a few thousand workstations by now.
