this thing runs much hotter under vista. I'm assuming that's due to the missing "performance counters" driver. But with all the right software installed and drivers, it's not too bad. It'll at least be fun for playing games.
One question... why are you bogging down a perfectly good computer with, of all things... Vista?
I'm already back into OS X
The real reason I installed it is to test it out before installing it on my PC. I really didn't want to go through the effort of installing vista, realizing it's not ready or whatever and then uninstalling it. This gave me a shortcut to try it out.
Whew. Good answer.
i had vista on my mbp, and didnt like it. vista doesnt seem to like ati drivers for some reason. i got glitches all the time unless i turned all of the performance graphics down. i installed it on my desktop, and in my opinion, it's actually running better with lower specs than my mbp.
not to mention, when i installed vista, i immediately restarted into mac os x, then a week later, booted into vista where low and behold..... goatse tiled on my background....... so secure.
lol. true story?
so are the osx clones in vista pretty obvious?
obvious? they run around naked and slap you in the fucking face. there's no way you can miss them.
Holy Crap! Right after I go through all the troubles of installing Vista on Bootcamp 1.1.2
BootCamp Goes 1.2 (Support for Vista)
Doesn't Vista have some fairly lame copy protection that allows the OS to only be installed on a limited amount of hardware configurations before it gives you the finger? That would suck if you used one up just to test it out on your MBP.
Hope you got it in Mexico or I'm wrong about the copy protection.
(corporate doesn't do it though)
Oh, don't worry about me.
I will add that with the new drivers disk from bootcamp 1.2 that vista works much better
what about parrellells vs bootcamp?
Parallels = No Aero, Media Center is slow, games don't work. and the fancy addons don't work.
Boot Camp = Basically just like a normal computer
Boot Camp you have to restart into though, right?
I've installed parallel, just haven't used it yet. I just need it for some proprietary apps at work...
However, after owning vista, and now having OSX, I'm just as happy throwing windows 2000 in parallel..
the new boot camp + vista = super stable, much more stable than XP on my mac. I've been using it alot recently to play command and conquer 3
hmmm, all this talk of vista performing better with the new boot camp... has anyone tested it on a 17" MBP? with the resolution being 1680x1050, the video drivers just sucked ass using any drivers i could find. also, has anyone installed VS2005 on their vista install? i was having trouble with it a month ago.
