i just loaded Vista onto my Gigabyte HA91, and it instantly failed to recognise my tv tuner and sound card.

Before I spend too much time on this, has anyone tried and failed to run Vista happily on this device?

Have you checked Windows Update for drivers? Or the manufacturers site?

Wasnt doing much of anything first time around. Tried again, and hey presto... picked up some drivers.
Unfortunately the HA91 cant run aero, and I doubt there is any space in there for a new gfx card to replace the onboard unit, so some of the nice UI is not available, and in fact, the plain UI doesnt look as nice as MCE2005 IMO.

I found that the decoding was very choppy sometimes, and required pausing/catching up before it would be smooth again - which would be disastrous for a recording.

I have reinstalled MCE2005 on this machine for now...

What graphics card do you have? There is a registry 'hack' to enable Aero which should make your system run faster
