So I downloaded the demo and it requires 2000 or better. Up to now I've done only 98.. So I buy a copy of XP Pro and after several 2+ hour load attempts I have an XP operating system.. I keep hearing how quick it loads and good it is, etc. Mine's a dog... takes forever to load and I had to install the demo 3 times before it would work... So I figure my XP install is bad...wipe the drive, start clean NTFS file system....same deal...takes forever to install and 4+ minutes to load on startup...whats the deal P4 2.8, 512M ram via motherboard, geforce video, on board sound...no netcards, soundcards, modems, etc.
By the way, if this is the wrong forum to ask, suggest a better spot and I'll move this there.
