Vista miracles


A month ago my desktop computer died, Windows XP (both the installed version and the installer) was crashing while booting and using Linux live CDs I was only able to get kernel panics.

As a student of the Politecnico di Torino I can have a free copy of Windows Vista Business and other Microsoft products (see the MSDNAA web page of my university.)

Today I tried to install Vista on my dead computer without any hope to finish the setup, but wow, Vista was installed correctly and now the computer is working. This mean that now I have to use Vista, I’m sad :(.

non ho parole -_-

Linux kernel usually panic if detect defect hardware, XP will go but get random crash. Maybe Vista just ignore it and will crash when the defect hardware will use it?

@Hansen:
Probably the motherboard is dying, as it always had some problems.
