I started the first Vista x64 install on Sunday. It is now Friday and I am still nowhere. I have formatted this thing at least half a dozen times. With my rig set to my specs. I can not get ANY form of ATi/Cat driver to install. Whole Cat pkg., just south bridge drivers, etc., nothing. I did replace my 3850 with my 2600XT and was able to get the Cats. installed. So I naturally put my 3850 back in to find the "no ATi card installed error". My rig only detected my X-Fi once, with the newest driver. It did not give me the Creative control panel so I tried to install it from the disk later on. No detection, WTF? I can't remember what I did to get the X-Fi detected. I have formatted this bleepin thing to much to get Vista x64 to work. I am dumbfounded here. I can think my next move is to pull out the X-Fi and maybe 2gigs of ram and try it again. Maybe I can limp this thing one leg at a time to finally get my hardware installed. Any help please! Just please don't say to switch camps.
