Comments

This is evidence to support ETS's descision to have the hardware cutoff to be not at or below the gx240 (hardware cutoff). Unless the 240 was a custom order from the depot and has better than 1.0gb ram, and a 40gb or bigger hdd. -Upgrade advisor recommended a new video card (suprise) -Known issues with the installed software -RAM, video -Known program related issues with the default uvm image (patched) -Intel Proset -SAV 10.1.4 -Java 2 SE runtime environment (upgrade) -Messenger (upgrade) -Active synch (no advice) -Ghost v 7.0 The experience -- This upgrade took better than 4 hours to complete (~12:29-5:30), after the upgrade was complete, it took another 2 full minutes to log in to the user desktop. The online update process failed to download the updated vista installer package, but was sucessful the 2nd time around.
