I have had it with Vista HP, as it cannot support SQL Server at the level needed. Too bad Microsoft doesn't tell you about the problem (I found out by surfing their forums)
I've purchased an XP Pro disk, but now I discover that XP cannot see my hard drive! That is in spite of the fact that the format is supposed to be NTSF. I tried deleting all partitions with no luck. I tried running a nuke program and it couldn't see the drive either (which is on a Dell Inspiron laptop). Apparently Vista did something interesting to my drive which I cannot undo. I actually had to resinstall Vista just to use this computer again (and that was a lot of fun too).
Does anyone know how I can get this OS off of my computer so I can get some useful work done???
