VISTA Business Edition does install fine on a Sun Java W1100z Workstation.

I have tried the 32 bits version.


The only driver which is not available from the installation DVDROM is the Realtek AUDIO AC97 driver.

See http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/134635 from where you can download it.

At the begining before all the Microsoft Updates were installed I had to complain about some performance issues with some "mouse hangs".

In my setup I have also a NVIDIA QUADRO FX 1100 video card which is perfectly installed by the OS installer (WHQL driver!). I have tried to use the official driver installer from NVIDIA website but it does end with error message saying that it did not find any hardware compatible with such driver (???)...

Anyway it does work fine.
