RE: Vista Ultimate with sp1 is blue screening on install
Thanks for the response. It is blue screening when i try to load the raid
driver from the cd. I choose the raid driver to load, then the system locks
up for a couple of seconds before blue screening. I suspect that it is an
issue with this driver. Unfortunately i haven't found another driver to use.
I'm going to try and load vista without sp1 and see if that helps any.
Anyone have any other ideas?
