Before installing Windows Vista you must know its requirements
1 GHz Processor or more (Core Duo or Core 2 Duo Processor Recommended)
1 GB Ram or more
At least 10 GB hard drive space (SATA Hard Drive Recommended)
128 Mb DirectX 9 compatible graphics card or Higher
DVD-ROM (Optical Drive)
Note: If you do not satisfy these requirements then you will be complaining about vista’s performance.
Approximately 5 million beta testers checked out the Windows Vista to make sure everything ran smoothly. As far as drivers go, Vista comes with 1.5 million drivers out of the box, so the chances of your peripherals not being recognized are pretty slim. Release-wise, Vista is being rolled out in over 70 countries, 39,000 retail outlets, and thousands of OEMs. What does this all mean? Well, according to Microsoft it means there’s no need to wait for that service pack. Vista should make everyone’s life easier now. We’re gonna take that with a grain of salt as we give Vista our own test run to see just how easier (or harder) it’ll make life for us.
Vista has a built-in automatic defragmenting application. Vista has the ability that it defragments its own drive where it is installed so you will never have to defragment that drive.
Vista has its own CD/DVD burning application.
