Vista64 and FS9

Recommended Posts

At present I run FS9 in XP Pro. My HDD has an un-allocated 150GB partition and I plan to install Vista64 on this. I will then have a dual boot setup. Will I be able to run FS9 in vista64 straight away or will I have to re-install FS9 on the new Vista64 partition?Intel Quad core Q9650, 4GB DDR2 RAM, GeForce GTX260 Core 216 Superclocked 896MB.John

I don't have a direct answer to your question, but a suggestion. I think you'd be better off getting a second hard drive to dual boot (they are very cheap now a days). Although I do not have any first hand experience of this, I have read that it's best not to have two installs on one hard drive due to slower read/write times and a more filled up hard drive which in general slows it down.

You should install it fresh on the X64 partition, especially if you use alot of 3rd party add-ons.

Thanks, I'll do both. I assume quad core and 4GB will improve FS9 stability and performance.

Hello,

quad core and 4GB
The RAM will improve .. not really the quad core (FS2004 use one)The speed (frequency) of the CPU is the important matter for FS2004 performances.Regards.bye.gifGus.
