I'm thinking it's something at my end. Really haven't messed with it much as of yet..
Others have said they haven't had much of a problem getting the two OSs talking to each other.

I got's an HDD round here "somewhere" with that on it...
I think it's now buried under all the CDs in the file drawer.
Guess HDDs don't float on top of CDs.

Pista won't be too bad once you loose all the incompatible bloatware...

Did they send ya an OS disk with the thing?  Had to email 'em to get the disk for that junker rig I bought from them.
(Not restore disk mind ya....  Actual Vista install disk..)

Sent all sorts of disks...one of them labeled "operating system", but not the traditional hologramy disk ms usually provides (though the ms office disk looks like a typical hologram type disk). Thinking


a little disappointed that they stopped giving out the little extras that came with their xps line...still get the disks at least, and paper manual as opposed to a pdf, though they used to also include a laptop sleeve and binder to hold the disks/manuals.  not a big deal, though was a nice touch when they had it.

Yup that be the one...  Got Dell stamped on it instead of the "normal" MS labeling.  Good one to have for a quick easy bloat dump. lol

Looked at the wallyworld website...  There's a company that seems to want to keep their little HD-DVD collection..
Most are priced higher than the blu-ray stuff.
