I ran it for a week, and it still wasn't that stable. The new photo management app crashed every time I loaded it for example...

Is your system overclocked? And can you be sure of the quality of the disc you burned?

Does anyone know if Vista will allow installation and booting from an external FireWire drive? I hate the fact that WinXP can only boot from a USB device and not FireWire, and even then u have to perform a few tricky registry hacks to make it boot correctly from a USB device. OS X on the other hand, can install & boot from both right out the box, yay for Macintosh EFI

Nope - stock Dell. Disc seems fine, and installed fine, so I'm not sure that can be the problem either...

Not particularly pleased to find that it couldn't even recognise the Audigy either - not exactly release candidate material when it comes to one of the best selling soundcards on the market

Yes it can. There are a few progs that I have run into problems with but vista automatically searches the net for fixes and has found one each time.

Something I just realized...There is no support for SLI or CF in vista rc1 Or am I just blind and missing it somewhere? Spent the last hour trying to find it but can't find a thing.
