OEM Vista sucks...
Learn to create your own install disks.
You will never regret it.

Using vLite?

I use a 4 step process...

Step 1 - Using the WAIK

- Copy OEM image to a work folder (DressedImage)

- Add SATA/RAID drivers to boot.wim with peimg

- Add All Other Drivers to install.wim with peimg

Step 2 - Using vLite

- Add any Updates

- Isolate the Ultimate Image Only

- Lose the Setup/Upgrade crap

(I support Clean Install only - Grandfathering the drivers in is asking for problems)

Step 3 - Using ImgMgr.exe + Autoattend.xml

- Setup pointers for Registry Edits

- Setup pointers for Software Installs

- Make changes to tweak Vista

Step 4 - Using WAIK

- Copy DressedImage to FinalImage

- Mount and add actual Software

- Apply Autoattend.xml

Once Steps 1 and 2 are complete(it takes a bit), Further development

and adjustments are quick because I do not alter the DressedImage.

XP got my vote, can't stand Vista. Hopefully Windows 7 will be more of an improvement, I need an upgrade but its not Vista.

I like XP heaps ATM but Vista has definitely improved. If you have SP1, and all the latest updates and components, its not too bad at all. Just has a lot of annoying things that can be fixed by reading online or visiting http://www.tweakguides.com/VA_1.html

annoying thing like its UAC.

why is there a list of vista editions from which we can choose in the Vista Setup?

what does that means? that all editions are included in the Vista DVD?

Yes UAC is very annoying but you will have an easy option to disable it in Windows 7 so its good to see MS listening to people.
