    Hi,

    My computer has an Intel D975XBX (*not* XBX2) board. This device isn't
    logo'd for Vista. The Windows Upgrade tool doesn't have a problem with it.
    I have ran a search here and on the internet, and it seems that a number of
    machines are indeed running Vista with that board. So my question is - what
    does "not logo'd" mean? Is it just that the board should be able to run
    Vista but wasn't designed for it? Or am I taking real risks by attempting to
    run Vista (I'm planning to use Vista Ultimate)?

    Thanks,

    JD

    If you have heard of other boards running it fine I would seriously say go
    for it, as long as the hardware passes with the Microsoft tool that checks
    your specs out. Chances are (I am no expert but this seems right to me) not
    logo'd means that it was not factory tested for it.
