    About four months ago I purchased Vista for my PC and it worked great for about a month. Now it doesnt boot without the disk in the drive, keeps screwing with my raid array, and I reinstall the OS once a month to keep it running.

    This is with a custom pc that has all major name brand parts.

    ASUS Mobo, Amd Athlon 64 x2, 4 gb DRR2 ram, ATI video card, And Seagate SATA Hard Drives, ETC

    Does any one have any solutions for these problems or should i switch back to XP?

    Sounds like you should take Vista back (if you can) and go back to XP. I say that cause there is something wrong with you not Vista. You would appear to have a driver issue or some hardware incompatabilites with your system.

    Sounds like you have something seriously wrong with your machine, the way you use it, or some programs you use. No OS should need reinstalling that often. Do you run a firewall and anti-malware apps as well as antivirus? Are there any other problems that point to a dying hard drive or bad memory?

    I've installed Vista on many machines including both old and new ones of my own and have had very few problems of any sort. So it may well be something other than the OS that is at the root of your problems.
