    Black Screen of Death Remains in RTM! Vista

    This is a follow up to my posting on the Black Screen of Death (BSOD) in
    this group on 10/13/2006

    The BSOD is alive and well in RTM vista MAYBE!

    It occurred once during an Upgrade install over RC2.

    QUESTIONS:
    1. IF I had done a clean install rather than an upgrade would it have
    happened?

    2. I went through a shutdown and a hibernate without getting it. Does this
    mean that it has disappeared?

    One thing that I love is the little audio beep that occurred just before the
    attempt to shutdown. I was doing something else, and it got my attention
    (just as I had intended with my suggestions on 10/13.)

    Otherwise the install went wonderfully.

    Current gripes:
    1. Visual Studio 2005 is NOT compatible with Vista. What a yuck:-)
    2. Windows Mail has a serious jitter problem that I've reported in the
    appropriate group.

    Regard,
    Al Christoph

    I use Visutal Studio for Reporting Services, and all other types of Business
    Intelligience developement - despite the warnings for SQL2005
    incompatibility - it's been working fine since RC2 for me.
