Hi all, first time posting. I updated my bios from here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/27301?highlight=wolfdale1333#post27301 . What do I do now, I mean what do I do after I do my fresh install of vista ultimate x86? My mobo: Asrock Wolfdale1333-D667 R2.0 Bios: Updated to 1.4. I previously had vista running for almost a year with another crack. But doing some updates it stopped working. So, here I am, not sure what to do. I've read a lot of stuff and I took off UAC and defender and I made sure I got full admin rights. Can someone please give me hand. I tried to do a few updates through vista loader, it worked and took off the activation but as soon as I dl'd some more updates with vista it took off the activation. So, as of now I am at a loss, do I reformat again and not donwload those updates which stop the activation and hope that the loader will work? Any ideas or directions like a step by step I need to would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help.
