  1. My system ,thanks to this news group, I have been a quite viewer for a long
    time. 2 plus years through the public preview of xp 64 My system is dual
    opterons a tyan 2885 mother board and 4 gigs of memory. It is tri booting
    windows xp pro 32 bit xp 64 and vista 64 with help from here and
    vistabootpro. their boot loader works. ok for the problem. xp 32 is great
    tough to crash drivers exist. everything works xp 64 will not crash but
    no drivers for scanners from microtek and Nikon. vista runs beautifully and
    stays running as long as I stay with it. if I leave it it reboots after
    about 15 minutes power options are set to not to turn off there is no screen
    saver set where else do I need to look there are no error messages in the
    logs? am I even looking in the correct place? Thanks to a great
    group, but I could use some direction.

  2. It sounds very much like it is going to "sleep", something Vista wants to do
    much more aggressively than XP did. Does it actually reboot, or simple
    shutdown into sleep and then ultimately into hibernate mode?

  3. thanks for the reply it reboots from xp 32 or 64 I also
    loose the drive. downloading RC 2 of vista it is going on a different drive
    to try and solve problem, I did set drive not to shut down, not to go to
    sleep etc. think there is a fast write error but no details.

  4. if it does this from either version of XP, we're looking for a hardware

  5. Just installed RC2 same drive there is no problem? I thought I was
    looking for a hardware problem also. Been installed since yesterday no
    reboot on its own. Not sure what happened but sometimes it is better to be
    lucky than good. Thanks. Problem now is finding and installing driver NVIDIA
    quarto 750 xgl I think can't get past VGA driver.

    What product key did you use for RC2? Can I use the one from BETA 2?
