Great excuses for not fixing …

Great list of items for “No one at the organization knows about, understands, or respects the issue.” within the “8 reasons why website vulnerabilities are not fixed”-list (http://jeremiahgrossman.blogspot.com/2009/05/8-reasons-why-website-vulnerabilities.html):

Windows 7 RC 1 – Update

gebhard 2009-05-11 Uncategorized

It was not possible to make Win 7 use the nVidia driver:

  • the setup program of nVidia didn’t install the drivers because it didn’t find an appropriate device
  • I forced a driver installation via the Windows device settings

But during reboot with the nVidia graphic card I always got the BSOD STOP 0x124 0x4 all over again.

So I lost the battle and gave up – and ghosted Win XP back …

Windows 7 RC 1

I wanted to update my Vista system in the living room (Medion MD 8818) to Win 7 RC 1. But I encountered a nasty error: the RC version doesn’t seem to work with nVidia chipsets. I tried the following:

  • boot old Vista, install Win 7 RC using upgrade mode
  • boot old Vista, install Win 7 RC using clean install mode

Both resulting in a BSOD (0x124, 0x4, see here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb725851.aspx) concerning PCIe.
