Well your not missing anything Vista isn't all that great, what ever you do DO NOT download the lastest Gateway Vista BIOS update, if you do, your XP won't work anymore, and they won't have your old XP BIOS, I'm screwed, that's what I did, and now going back to XP after it's installed LOCKS UP & after 30 min. the notebook re-boots and the ATI Video/chipset drivers and the 3D grapichs won't work in XP anymore, nothing I can do about this ,Gateway says just to use Vista and just get-over-it, as we don't support XP anymore, and it's your fault that you did this and your warranty is now TOAST!!! However Gateway did offer to sell me a NEW motherboard for $344 but I declined that offer and told them THANKS FOR NOTHING!!!
I guess now my XP Restore DVD's make Great Coasters.........LOL they aren't much worth anything anymore snice they cannot be used anymore...........if I do use them I end up with a broken XP OS.....................The good news is Vista works well in my MX6447, but I cannot ever go back to XP again..............Oh well.................
