Did a RAM upgrade on my Home Desktop PC. First thought of adding just 512MB. DDR1 costs more than DDR2, and my mother board supports only ddr1. After installing the RAM the machine froze after couple of minutes. I didn’t know that these RAM problems still plague the industry. My friends advice and another 1200 bucks, I got a chance to upgrade to a total 1GB. What a relief for VMWare. Apprantly diffreent memory sizes cause a problem and if its different brands, the problem is even worse.
Installed the Vista that I downloaded, lack of display RAM didn’t get me enough rating for the Aero interface. The installation went fine, except that it required 8G. The best part of the installation is that it doesn’t wait for user input in between, saving time by leaving the installation.
A problem that I found was that it wouldn’t let me create a new network connection. After googling and restarting the machine somehow the problem got solved. I don’t quite know what setting I changed. The UI is stunning, but that’s not a requirement for a power user. The prompts for running each and everything that requires MMC(Microsoft Management Console) is irritating.
I guess there’s lot more time to change and nothing really worth a change in Vista.
