I am running XP Home SP2 and bought Vista Ultimate Upgrade. Now, before
letting go of my XP installation I wanted to test drive Vista on a separate
partition in test mode (without entering the activation key).
Installation went through without a hitch and the system booted into Vista
seamlessly. I was impressed.
But that's when the problems started. Vista started the auto-update and
rebooted. Upon reboot it the system soon became unstable and crashed/stopped
responding ("Unable to create system warning" message in Windows Explorer).
I thought to myself that maybe as long as it's not activated it can't be
updated so I reformatted the partition and re-installed but de-activated
auto-update this time. Same scenario: Installation without a problem but once
I was in Vista it soon became unstable and stopped responding.
My system specs:
Intel Core 2 firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz
2 GB of Ram
GeForce 7950 GX2
MSI 975X Platinum Motherboard
JMicron JMB36X Raid Controller
Onboard Realtek High Definition audio
Any ideas what could cause this?
