Kinda what I figured so win2003 was for SERVER 2003 not Windows Vista . So
ASUS is no help - that was really my issue - how to update " all the onboard
stuff" ( strange that I got this mobo at a Microsoft Vista/AMD show, yet no
support for Vista listed by ASUS)

Only 2000/2003/XP no Vista , so I followed next step

and there it lists vista RC1 updates, but has only 4 drivers - audio/raid
etc - not for "all of the nvidia stuff I have onboard" as they have for the
supported OS'es at http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

Will do but since it's OK in XP , I don't suspect hw issue. All of the
errors are ACPI related. If I look at Dev mgr - dev by connection - ACPI-
PCI - there is a lot of nvidia stuff listed that isn't included in the RC1
update on their site. Worst case, I'll just purge the event log
occasionally to clean it out until I see a "nforce4 for Vista" update on the
Beta page ( if it ever does arrive)
Thanks for the help.
