Yes, the DVD is including SP1.
Ok. I´ll will try to remove 2 Gb Ram, than to reinstall the windows, check the stability and then I´ll build in the RAM and will try to install the graphic card.
I hope this workarround will work.
Thank you so far, I´ll let you know if it worked.
So I was yesterday experimenting with my laptop.
I pulled out 2Gb Ram, reinstalled windows - Result : the system was again unstable, in fact the first message i´ve got was "windows explorer has stopped working" :P It´s just funny...
...so I´ve installed the chipset and then the graphic card and I´ve got the same bluescreen...
As it is a new Vista, I finally decided to give up and to return the Vista 64bit at the store and I will install the 32bit Vista which came with this notebook.
anyway big Thanks for everything!
Hello All -
I hope that this post will help out some others. After seeing this issue in many other forums regarding Vista 64Bit and more then 4GB of ram installed and getting the BSOD (03b) error. I wanted to resolve this issue, which I did. I have only test it one laptop at the moment. E6500 with 8GB of Ram running Vista 64Bit SP1. Here is the steps I did to resolve this issue. First do NOT install Vista with a SlipStremaed SP1 installed. I believe this is where the issue stem from. WHat I did was install Vista (No Service Pack) after installing it I installed the Intel Chipset Software directly from Intel, not Dell and before rebooting installed the Intel Matrix Storage Manager Drive directly from Intel's site. After that then I rebooted the system. Then installed the Stock Dell nVidia Driver (A01). Rebooted, tada the machine booted with no BSOD. After that I then applied SP1 to the machine. again the machine boots no issues. I wish I knew why Vista with SP1 slipstreamed (Technet Version) was causing the machine to BSOD. if anyone could have ideas as to whay this happens I think we all would love to know.
