MSI
* K8T Neo (MS-6702)
o Promise 20378 on-board SATA - Unable to load driver when installing Vista RC1 or once installed.
+ Build 5600 Solution: Disable in BIOS and use only the on-board VIA VT8237 SATA until Promise are able to supply a compatible driver.
+ Build 5728 Solution (x64): Setup a 1 disk Raid0 in the BIOS and load the Promise 20378 Windows x64 driver when setting up drives during Vista install.
o Realtek 8110C/8110S LAN - Conflict may exist between on-board LAN and Via VT8237 SATA when booting.
+ Solution: Disable Realtek LAN in BIOS and install LAN card. Manually clear the CMOS with the on-board jumper to access the BIOS & disable the on-board LAN.
o Realtek ALC655 - Vista will automatically install VIA AC '97 sound driver. General sound issues such as skipping and hiss may be heard.
+ Solution: Install Realtek AC 97' Vista Beta Sound Driver (6156)
o A major problem with many systems with SATA Controllers is that sound, specifically when playing MP3s, will skip when using the new drivers supplied with Vista RC1.
+ Solution: "Downgrade" the driver for your SATA Controller, the Via VT8237 in this instance, for a fairly recent XP driver. Sound skips are now a thing of the past.
[+ Note: This problem has been fixed with build 5728 so there is no need to change the Via VT 8237 driver from the installed MS Vista driver.]

More about list vista supported hardware software
  1. Nero 7 is now (semi?) officially Vista compatible with their October update.

    http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Nero_7_Premium_Release_Notes.html

    If you check you'll find that most if not all of the suite applications are now Vista ready. It has somehow screwed up my WMP settings but I don't mind (for now) since Showtime is a much better player anyway. I've already played a movie and it worked flawlessly with better video quality than WMP. I think Ahead licenses the player from CyberLink. Nero Vision works fine as does Burning ROM. I haven't tried Recode yet. With Vison I no longer need to rely on Media Center and its ridiculous DRM restrictions to burn recorded media to DVD. There's also a new Vista version of DVRMSToolbox (1.2.0.2) that you can use to preprocess the video before transcoding.

    Thanks Ahead!
  2. Make this a sticky...

    Also, not to nitpick or anything, but as far as Daemon Tools goes, there is both an X64 and X86 version for Vista, and it's 4.0.6 (I don't think any other 4.0.x will work).

    EDIT: if you are upgrading from RC1 to RC2, make sure you uninstall Daemon Tools first; from what I've read, it won't work unless you uninstall and then reinstall after the upgrade.

    As always, check the manufacturers website for more details on exact drivers, updates and issues on software.

    When I find out if it works or not, it'll be added. If new issues come up with the item in question, it will be either added or removed. For the most part, this will be updated daily.

    Also check the Vista Updates, Drivers & Patches sticky for exact information, and locations of the latest drivers and patches that are Vista compliant.

    Whats up bro.
    I've double checked this and updated the guide. Thanks. Nit picking is allowed.
  5. This actually NEEDS to be a sticky, or it will be lost in the sea of posts.

  6. Thanks for that.
    I'm thinking of adding the new Asus 4x4 boards, but I'm not sure if I should do this now, or wait for the actual introduction of 4x4 to the market.

  8. Thanks for that Baron. Updating now.
  9. What about teh Sims and Halo?
  10. The Sims 2 checks out in 32Bit mode and is still iffy in 64bit so I left it out of the list for 64bit but listed the 32bit version.
    Microsoft and Bungie have not gotten back to me yet in regards to Halo. I think only Halo 2 will work with both the 32 and 64 bit versions but, there is a possibility that Halo will work in 32 bit mode. Therefore, both Halos are pending.

    You said that you'd test this out but I don't see how... 8O
  12. lol oh man! that 3com 3c905 chip has been in support forever...awesome
  13. No, no, you misread my post bro. If I can't get my hands on the hardware, I'll contact the company or do a search to check for its compatibility. I don't have the time or the money to test every bit of hardware or software out there.
    Thanks for the new stuff though and keep searching for more.

    @Everyone:
    Should I also include Vista Compliant laptops?
  14. I don't see why not to include laptops. It will be quite a bit more research, but you'll get an extra cookie from me if you do it :D
  15. Done. You owe me an extra big cookie. Feel free to add any major companies that I missed.
  16. Er, at least for me, Final Fantasy XI will not work due to the fact that it requires PlayOnline and PlayOnline is having a difficult time with the Vista network settings or some crap.

    I don't know, but has anyone else have any luck? Or am I the only one that plays MMORPGs here? :oops:
  17. Its been updated, and the notation to the error has been recorded. Thanks for the info. Keep looking for stuff.


    Edit: We're now a sticky, atleast for the duration of the Vista thread. Big kudos to the mods.
  18. Thank you 3lfKing for testing Albatross18 for us. It has now been added to the list of incompatible with heavy errors. Please take note.
  19. what about intel's 965 mobo series, they are said to be compatable
  20. Could you be specific with which exact 965 boards? I need more information.

    Edit: I've updated the Intel motherboard listing and also Asus has a new listing still under testing.
  21. In the Motherboard section Intel's D945GNT motherboard is being repeated 3 times, so make some correction, also I'd suggest that you just list the chipset for example. Intel 965 Express chipset motherboards are compatible with Vista, Intel 945 Express Chipset boards are compatible. But anywayz this is a really good thread and I appreciate your work. Keep it up, thanx for the info.
  22. In the graphics cards section -> Onboard:
    Add:
    1. Intel GMA X3000 (Intel G965 Express Chipset)
  23. In the Developer Tools section
    Add:
    1. Microsoft® Windows® Software Development Kit (ISO) for September CTP of Windows Vista and .NET Framework 3.0 Runtime Components
    2. Microsoft DirectX (October 2006) Software Development Kit
  24. I can't believe I missed such an obvious error. :oops:
    Thanks much. Do you know what compatibility modes these new additions will work with or is it just universal?
  25. hmm? wot do you mean by universal? the SDKs have libraries for both versions (32 bit and 64 bit), will work with xp sp2 , vista, server 2003, not on nt 2000.
