    Hi all.

    installed Vista on a separate partition on my system running Win2k3.
    I encounter massive performance problems opening windows like IE7 (3-5min)
    to open.
    I installed build 5308 on a Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.6 Ghz, 2 MB RAM.

    Trying to start the performace check hangs up.
    Any ideas what the problem could be.

  2. Your computer seems fine - performance is to be checked and fixed in the
    April CTP/Beta 2 - everyone's complaining, not just you :eek:)

    Have you installed 5308 on a SATA drive? I did, and had horrible lags and
    hiccups. Reinstalled to old IDE drive on the same machine, and performance
    is blazing fast and no problems. The same clean install on a formatted drive
    in both cases. Give IDE a go.

    I wonder why this would be such an issue. :(

    Well, with just 2MB of RAM, it's normal ;)

    Lol! I think Christian meant 2GB of RAM, but we were all just having fun.
    Along Zack's lines, there's a lot of debug-code in Vista right now, so Vista
    will get faster - probably by the April CTP. (Supposed to be a public

    Hehe, I think he meant 2GB too.
    And I can understand how he feels, I've 2GB of RAM too, and it's heeell
    slow. But, he, it's a beta, we can't expect it to be perfect until the
    final. And I don't think Vista final will be perfect neither, if it
    would, Windows Update team would be fired ;)
