WD's Raptor And Nvidia G80 Don't Play Nice With Vista

Nvidia and Western digital Present "Windows Vista: Paralysis Edition"

The Western Digital Raptor WD1500ADFD is one of the fastest hard drives in the world, and Nvidia's G80 among the top graphics cards on the market. They are also among of the pieces of kit which we have discovered do not run well with Windows Vista at all.
If your computer runs Windows Vista and contains an Nvidia graphics card or one of Western Digital's speedy Raptor drives then you can suddenly find that certain options refuse to work, and even simple printing jobs can provoke cryptic and misleading error messages. So, we went on the hunt to find out what is wrong and hopefully solve - and prevent - these problems.

Same here, I have both, well not exactly the raptor WD1500ADFD, but the WD1500AHFD, the only difference between the two is that mine looks better (black casing with transparent side panel). No errors, nor freeze...

I have XP and Vista Dual boot. I'm running XP's raid in Vista as well. No problems besides crappy Nvidia drivers.
