Hi, I already posted about this nightmare slow installation I'm having with a HP machine, I have this issue, with very simllar hardware http://www.geek.com/forums/topic/ext...running-system
has anybody else run into it? Anyone know a workaround to use a generic vista disk? I have all flavors, I have the coa, just no way to make recovery set or to get vista installed correctly. Never-mind, after several attempts I created a slipstreamed disk with the old hd drivers and got it done, still took 3 hrs for the installer to finish.
