The 2GB fix wasn't really necessary since you already had a copy up and running, I had no problem installing 64bit with 8gb of RAM myself. I'd take a hour or so once you have a VISTA copy installed and download/install all the updates, including the optional ones which often include motherboard controllers. There shouldn't be any reason to keep installing vista though.
Make sure you put everything back to stock on the video card when you boot up if your using Riva or something to overclock. The bios update should revert all your settings there.
ok, couple questions on this. yes, it moved all the old crap to "windows.old". Windows wouldn't let me delete everything in there at once, but I deleted most of it piece by piece.
So your saying that where I am right now, with a new copy of Vista installed, that I should spend my time downloading drivers and all that?
I guess I've been operating under the impression that just the physical act of installing 2 sticks of RAM wouldn't cause my drivers to become outdated. So when i tried reinstalling Crysis and got the "memory management" BSOD, i just gave up.
