Install bug? Video/memory issue RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Two issues I found during new install:

    1. Using a DVI connection from the monitor did not work.  Never got past the "starting windows" screen.  Changing to a VGA connection solved it.

    2. Even though I had 1 gig of memory installed, set-up reported less than 1024 meg and would not proceed.  Solved by borrowing memory from another machine.  Removed it after install and boots up fine.  I suspect it may have something to do with the motherboard graphics using shared memory, but, not sure.

    FYI for the early adopters.
