Nvidia cuts Vista support for Nforce 2 chipset

Well Nvidia decided to say the final good bye to this chipset as it doesn't want to develop the Vista drivers for it.

Thats not true.
I've tried RC1 on a nForce2 motherboard, it worked fine!
only install on a sata harddisc won't work.
when i tried installing it on an IDE disc, all worked perfectly.
When i tried to install the sata disc later on, on a pci card, it also worked.

Great, so your new SATAII PCI card is capable of doing 300 MB/s, but is limited by the 133MB/s PCI interface. What's your point?

I really wish nVidia would keep supporting nForce 2 with official drivers. They will alienate a lot of loyal customers with this bad move, myself included...

from the nv forum:

Microsoft Removed Dsound Hardware FOR NO REASON other then making the RIAA (Rigid Institute of Anal Retentive bums)... happy....
Anyway, I've tried vista and it didn't realy posed such a problem. Some XP drivers can still be used (by extracting the installer and manualy selecting the driver via system management), for sound drivers (becuase the XP drivers crash Vista in such way it can't even make a BSOD ... just a blank blue screen) you can use the Realtek drivers. SATA from SiliconImage can be used (for my motherboard).
So don't make a too big fuss out of it.
