This guide is great Tony! I just think you should add that for the Vista Integration Tool you need .NET 3.0 and if you can tell me what do you think about the RightMark CPU Utility in Vista?
|For the newer (Inspiron 1720, XPS M1730, Precision M6300) model laptops, you MUST DISABLE AHCI (change the setting from AHCI --> ATA) in the BIOS in order to proceed with installation of the Operating System without issues, otherwise the installation WILL FAIL!|
2) When I was re-installing Windows I, of course, had to first delete and then format the partition. I noticed that there were, in fact, two partitions. The primary one (C occupied a majority of the storage space and was NTFS. The other partition did not have a drive letter associated with it, was about 75MB, and FAT32. Any idea what this smaller partition is? Should it be left alone or should I delete it and use the space in the usable partition?
