I just hooked up a copy of vista home premium upgrade 32-bit and did a
custom install over xp pro. I was shootin for 64-bit version but looks
like I have to wait a week or so. My first time ever even seeing vista
and I do like it a lot except that I ve been getting more than a few
bsod's. I wouldn't be surprised if it was due to some error on my part,
maybe how I installed the drivers. First thing I did was install the
latest chipset drivers from intel 188.8.131.528 off a burned cd. Then I did
a windows update which installed a couple drivers as well, and next i
installed latest graphics drivers. It was soon after this that I got a
notification about a compatability problem "Download and install the
driver for Intel ICH9 from the manufacturer's website" I did that and I
think windows reinstalled my chipset drivers, but an older version. It
was shortly after that when I got my first bsod. I was bummed. Not to
mention the fact that I've had probably 10 of them now in the past 2
days I've been running Vista. I pretty much got ansy and decided to
install the 32-bit version while I wait for the 64-bit disk to show up
in the mail so I could get a little test run and check it out. Maybe
64-bit will be more stable?(I have 2 more gigs that Im gonna add when I
install it) Also maybe my possible gof goof installing the chipset
drivers caused it? Should I let windows update handle chipset drivers?
Other than that I just don't know. Could be anything for all I know. But
other than those bsod's, it seems to be running fast and stable. Anybody
got any advice? I'd appreciate it. I'm hopin i can get it right next
