Here were the questions that were originally in the FAQ thread. They have been removed from there to clean it up.
when i want to burn a dvd with vista's included dvd burner, it tells me to reformat, and when its done, its only 4Gb big, while an with an other program it would be 4.3GB. Then after i butn something, and i take it out, and put it back in again, it tells me to reformat again.

Thanks for the heads up. I may leave the system as is for a while until I see about the warranty. Thanks though for the work through.
I've got a question that's been burning me up all day, and I'm not too sure that it's been covered. This is in regards to upgrading from an OEM copy of Win XP Pro SP2C OEM to Vista Ultimate x64 upgrade.
Just recently, I upgraded some hardware, like extra RAM, a second hard drive, swapped my floppy drive with a media card reader, and added a Wireless N adapter to my rig. Miraculously, Win XP successfully reactivated itself on my desktop, which I never thought was gonna happen. Now, I haven't installed any hardware drivers and/or internet security on my PC yet, since I was going to do that AFTER upgrading to Vista. I'm wondering. Since my Win XP Pro copy is 32-bit, I'm wondering if, when I grab the Upgrade DVD from a store shelf, that Microsoft would allow me to upgrade from 32-bit Win XP to 64-bit Ultimate at all. Even tho my hardware configuration can definitely handle 64-bit, I'm wondering if Microsoft will allow it from an upgrade at all, or if Microsoft will only confine me to Vista x32 off the upgrade. I was about to Google about this, but could not find a 100% accurate answer to this issue.
Just stating that this could become a FAQ real quick, since everyone that wants to upgrade from x32 XP to x64 Vista would like to know if Microsoft would allow for that to happen with the $250 upgrade disc.
Well, that only covered XP Pro x64 to Vista x64. I was asking about upgrading from XP Pro x32 to Vista Ultimate x64.
