Installation issues - VGA instead of DVI

    I got my key via MS mail, downloaded the eval edition and burnt the
    ..iso image by means of Nero 6.

    I started installation with SiS S-ATA Raid driver raid303 via F6 and
    got horrible screen disturbances before being able to select the
    installation drive.
    Tried with another SiS S-ATA driver, another x64 eval download
    burnt... - same 'picture'.
    Sherlock Holmes told me to look for a different cause;-)

    Then I replaced the digital monitor cable with an analogous one - VGA
    instead of DVI - and ecce! the installation performed smoothly.
    Activation via internet no prob (though I am now multi-booting with
    WinXP_SP2_ENU, WinXP_SP2_DE, WinXP_x64_RC2, and WinXP_x64_Eval in one
    boot.ini).
