Laptop Vista Install


I got my new hard drive in and so I started installing Microsoft Vista right away. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go but I’m familiar with the setup and process. I started with the CDs copying the information and went from there. There were three things I was worried about which were the wireless adapter, screen adapter, and sound adapter. As I started the install I went through all the prompts fairly quickly.


As I got to the log-on screen I waited for the graphics to adjust a bit before working completely, but to my delight everything worked like a hitch. No problems with the wireless, sound, hard drive, screen, and other hardware components. Everything was working fine, I just need to do some tweaking for the screen since it needs all the correct drivers which are available from Alienware.
