bah! i cannot find the Solaris Utility dvd 4.0 download. i tried the download link on Solaris Utility dvd 4.0 thread. but it just leads to some french website. I would like to find this disc, but if it was removed from the net, guess i'll have to make my own.
hey man, i guess i shoulda done this from the start but i simply unplugged my dvd drive, then reconnected it and walla it loaded up the vista disc just fine, did a system restore and i'm good now. thx for the tip on a slow start up though i had been wondering for a while why it was starting up slow.
