Is anyone running Vista Rc1 or 2 with the 680i chipset. I am running a C2D E6600 on a eVGA 680i. At separate times I have installed both Vista RC1 32bit and RC2 64bit. After installation they both either blue screen or spontaneously restart.
With by previous system, a C2D 6400 on a Gigibyte DQ6 I consistently ran Vista RC2 with no problem.
I even tried running it with stock settings and the problems were the same.
I suspect imcompatibility with the nVidea drivers but I would like to hear about other experiences.
My work a round for Vista is XP and it looks like I will be running for quite a while yet. Thanks for the links but drivers are of no value if I cannot load the OS . I expect, unless I am missing something obvious, that the solution is to be found in a 680i bios update.
I would love to find that I have been doing something dumb (not that unusual ). Though I am by no means ready to depend on Vista I do enjoy playing with it and finding all the programs that wont run under it .
