I remember when XP came out it was like WOW, everything works well, hardly any driver issues etc. They need SP2 for Vista or something and the manufacturers need to start cranking out some good updates. Sorry for the vent but
You're trying to use an old serial device, likely devised for Win 3.1/95, and complaining about issues with running it on XP/Vista? While you're at it, why don't you ***** about SNES carts not fitting in the PS3's slot loading Blu-Ray?

I just reinstalled last night after about 6 months of use. The difference in speed is amazing. I finally used vlite and got the install trimmed down nicely. My box feels like a high end rig again.
after vlite remember that some updates will not install correctly, and even forget about updating to sp2 without any issues.

Yea I just found out about that today. Some error on some update.

Did MS do this on purpose, or is vlite just not mature enough yet? I did get sp2 slipstreamed in successfully. I will reformat when SP2 time comes I suppose.

vista just doesn't support slipstreaming, so what vlite is trying to do simply messes things up
