    the vista upgrade from XP to Vista, thru transformation pack that really a problem because you only transform your xp to vista ready. you really need a vista OS. to complete the vista installation. that why your old drivers are not now compatibles your systems.



  • Alver Clamonte
    Alver Clamonte Dec 05, 2008

  • Alver Clamonte
