Re: XP SP2 (32Bit)o Visa Ultimate 64bit.
Yes I tried 3 methods
A ista Ultimate 32 bit upgrade via overwrite.
A Vista Ultimate 32 bit Upgrade via clean install
And the Vista Ultimate 64 bit which is a complete fresh install.
All clean installs I formatted the disk as part of the install.
XP I have just had to reinstall as, no matter which method or type 32bit or
64bit. Vista just appears to hang.
It installs, but does not run.
I have checked all components they are all listed as Vista compatable.
So I am at a loss :-(
