Vista Server Beta 2

I've got a Dell Precision M70 with the Nvidia x86 Vista beta drivers loaded.
For some reason I can't run the Performance & Tools applet in the Control Panel.
It comes back saying something along the lines of "page failed to load" and then
Windows Explorer crashes. Because of this, I can't get Aero to turn on since
there is no performance rating for my machine (no xml files have been
generated.)

Is this a known problem?

Nah - try a fresh installation - must have been a small glitch in the setup
process :o(

Well I tried a fresh installation of the non-server version of Vista and
everything worked fine. Looks like they still have some bugs with Longhorn (and
I really hate the new non-Aero interface... looks like Gnome on Linux!)
