ok screenshot
here is the "my computer " window it shows proc speed and ram and the drives installed

i have got rid of the sidebar now cos it was hogging system specs , and in case you where wondering my desktop picture is this
http://www.desktoppictures.com/image...and-clouds.jpg

then i loaded it in photoshop and inverted the colour

vista lite is very good , i am planning on putting it on my laptop maybe but the hard drive is only 54gb after recovery data so it would be a close one

Do the network and sound work because they appear to have xs on them in the taskbar?

wohoo , one of my memory sticks can support ready boost , i now have ready boost running on a 512mb usb memory stick


in a quick benchmark i have run you will see windows vista lite performs better than xp pro but as you see it is only the memory and this is down to ready boost

nice! i brought a cheapo 256mb stick from currys not so long ago and that wont work, yet my 1gb stick i got a year ago works, yet i dont want to keep that in my pc as i use it often. the 256mb one needs a cable to plug in so maybe thats why. hmmm
