After getting stung again by a wasp on Friday afternoon, I wasn’t able to put my new computer bits together because of the Hellboy hand. Feeling a bit like an invilid, I called Brendan to see if he was able to lend me a hand.
Putting all the new components together didn’t take very long at all and it posted successfully on the first attempt! Back in July, I mentioned that I had won a copy of Windows Vista Business, so with the new found speed it seemed like a good time to give that a go. Installing Windows Vista was absolutely pain free and surprisingly fast on the new hardware.
A day later and the only thing I’m having problems with is the driver for my Netgear WG311T PCI wifi card. Once the Netgear wireless card is physically installed, I can still boot into Windows Vista without a hitch. As soon as I install the driver for the card, everything is still working – wifi included, until I have to reboot. Upon rebooting, the machine gets into the boot process and hangs for some reason. To get back into Windows, I need to boot into safe mode and disable the device.
Not sure what I’m going to do about the Netgear driver problem but once that is done, I should have a pretty sweet rig.
