    VISTA RC1 32 Bit / 64 Bit both provide no support for my PCI Video slots on my
    Intel® Server Board SE7525RP2. I did a clean install on my 64 bit PC (both
    32 bit and 64) using my NVIDIA PNY 7600

    GT PCI Express card 2 Gigabytes of DD2 RAM.
    Keep in mind folks that this setup works fine with XP Professional 32 bit
    and 64 bit, which I am forced to run as we

    speak due to VISTA's inability to assign resources to PCI express slot on my
    motherboard. When it boots up I have 4

    bit color. When right clicking on my computer the error is: error 12,
    'Unable to load drivers, not enough resources

    to start this device, free up some resources and try again.' Its not the
    video card drivers I discovered. Its The

    VISTA team who is not providing support for my MB. Its not like I have
    oddball hardware here. I am disapointed

    BIGTIME. If anyone has a solution, I am listening, but sad. : *(

    Now class write on the blackboard 100x "Microsoft does not write drivers".
    It is up to Intel to supply MS with a basic set of working drivers. If they
    pass they are included in Vista and the drivers will be stamped Microsoft as
    the provider. That is why people seem to have this strange idea MS actually
    writes all the drivers built into Vista but the reality is they don't.

    Yeah, ok. Microsoft doesn't write drivers. They SHOULD, however, let us
    know if there is a driver missing. VISTA gave no errors relating to the
    motherboard. All it states its is it cannot load the drivers FOR THE VIDEO
    CARD in device manager ("not enough resources"). There are no missing or
    unrecognized **motherboard** devices.

    It is up to Vista to provide error messages to alert the user what's
    happening. WHAT resources are there not enough of? WHICH device needs the
    driver? (Here's a clue: it isn't the video card - nVidia HAS VISTA drivers,
    which I downloaded.)
