Can't install FEAR with Vista RC1!?!?! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
You've got the serial for XP right? so all you have to do is get the disk (~5$ on ebay) or borrow it from someone you know. Backup all your data and wipe your hard drive. Stick the XP disk in and create 2 partitions which one you will install xp on. Once you have XP situated download the vista .iso and run it through XP using a virtual drive program like daemon tools to install it on the on the other partition... Thats what I did and now I have a dual boot of non corrupted XP or vista

sorry to barge in here with another question, i have installed the fear multiplayer demo on xp, copied the program folder to my vista program (because it would not install in vista), files.....fixed direct x......started and it works, i run the first benchmark,55 min, 90 avg, 259 max on high settings......and i was like omg...that framerate...then i started the multiplayer mode and my framerate was like 5 to 10 frames.......run another benchmark and it gave me 5 min, 10 avg, 12 max, went to xp and it gave me 28 min, 50 avg, 102,max at maximum settings, then i went back to vista and noticed the framedrop occurred after completing half of the benchmark and from there on stays, it does it with single and multiplayer mode...i have played it on my laptop at a decent framerate but cannot play on my rig .........my xp does never connect to the internet,(safety measures) because there are recorded projects on it, and are in use very often (i disconnect the xp drive when im in vista).....does anybody know/have experience with this...and how do i solve it? tnx
