Problem is, that when i baught the computer, they never gave me a backup of Windows XP, and i wanted to install vista cause i heard so many good things about it.

Don't listen what people say... Vista is OK for regular desktop use... for gaming... lets say it's not ready.

You can play minesweeper and solitaire. :)

Apparently, both the ATi and WDM drivers are the same. The problem is a basic incompatibility between the ATi/nVidia drivers and dual-core CPUs. As a workaround, you can limit startup to one CPU with EasyBCD or VistaBootPro. Search for them with Google - they are easy to find.

VistaBootPro :)

Quote from their website: "A digital age deserves a digital leader..."

announcing a beta release (version 3.1 wow :P ) for a beta OS which hasn't hit the stores yet of a bloattool which needs .NET 2.0 for a task which can be done by manually opening boot.ini with Notepad :)

What about msconfig or F1 and let it search for boot.ini in case you need to recheck the parameters....
