    Hi, I was able to get vista 5342 installed on my nf7-s, however I cant get
    the ATI radeon driver as provided at the following site to work:

    https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&folderID=5712

    The above is for vista build 5308.

    I have also tried the ati radeon drivers for vista build 5270 and beta 1:

    https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&folderID=5712

    But they just dont work.

    Would anyone know what the problem might be, or when ati will release a
    driver for build 5342?

    cheers,
    john

  2. This is expected since 5342 is an interim build not of same quality as CTP,
    its just a refresh of the February CTP, so things are expected to break. I
    can't guarantee you will get any support on this from ATI. The best
    recommendation is to use the drivers bundled with 5342 or wait on the next
    CTP or go back to build 5308.

  8. John, I have no answer for you except to tell you my own experience,
    I've had very little luck getting ANY ATI drivers to work with Windows
    2000, Windows XP, Windows X64, Windows Vista OR various Linux distros,
    the ATI drivers always seem to create some problems.

    In each case the drivers bundles with the various OSs seem to provide
    the screen resolutions I want and the color depth that I need. I hope
    that works for you, it'll save you a great deal of frustration.
