Relatively smooth install of RC1 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Relatively painless install of RC 1


    My system

    MSI K9N Neo-F Nforce 550 AM2

    AMD A64 X2 3800

    2 320G Seagate Sata2 16M drives

    2G Crucial Memory

    Nvidia 7300GT 256M video card (it was cheap)


    Things i didnt quite like...

    No progress shown when installing .NET..... I thought the computer locked up but sat and waited and it continued...


    No NIC support for Nforce motherboard... but after windows rebooted a few times, and i finally actually got to the WHS console... installed the XP Nforce driver pack and it pretty much just worked....Too well... windows update had quite a package to install... and more reboots...


    Other than that it was a much smoother install than any of the previous releases...

    It more or less "just worked"


    All the drives appeared on the first go.

    (including windows detecting my SATA controller)

    But this is only a day or two after iv installed it.. Well see...
