    hi and welcome to pinstack follow the link above our pinstack members have put everything you need to know in there


    and one thing very important after the upgrade sometimes the hour glass spins for about 30 minutes this is not unusual do not disconnect your pearl until it is fully rebooted no matter howe long it takes , also an install can sometimes take at least 40 minutes so be very patient

    Re: First Time OS Installer! Help

    Has anyone tried installing this OS using Windows Vista? When I go to install the OS on my computer it says ERROR READING THE SETUP FILE, then just stops there.

    it does work with vista but you must have the latest DM software service pack 1

    but having said that it is still very adventurous because vista is very very buggy , if you dont have windows xp , use vmplayer the set up a virtual windows xp and that works fine
