prc1 on laptop, upgrade fresh xp or clean install?

  1. Hi guys,

    When I installed Vista Beta2 on my compaq 2105us laptop, I did it as a fresh
    install (immediately after low level format). It had several
    driver/networking issues that ultimately caused me to uninstall it.

    With prc1, I was thinking of low level format, install xp, INSTALL MFR
    DRIVER DISK, then upgrade to vista prc1. Would this be a good idea, or a
    waste of time?

    Yes, I tried updating/manually installing all drivers from mfr disc with the
    beta2, but the disc wouldn't let me...

    Or are so many of the issues of 5384 solved that I should just do the clean
    install after the LLF?
