Ok, this has been bugging me since I first tried to play Oblivion on Vista. I keep hearing stories of how it works perfectly, yet I still can't get it to work. No other sites help, and it seems only this site can have a remote chance.
Anywho, Everything is past recommended; CPU GPU processor RAM etc.
and I have tried:
-Running in compatibility mode for XP
-Running as Admin
-Taking out old saves
-Disabling the compatibility options with check boxes
And recently I have tried partitioning XP, but have failed. I get to "The comp will restart and finish setup" and then it gets stuck after the motherboard boot screen (with F12 for boot menu, DEL for BIOS, etc.) then after a while, no message pops up, but some caracters on the screen (The second boot screen shows the PCI Devices, their numbers etc) disappear. Say one thing is 54DE, after the time period it will be 54D and other objects lose letters. So, I had to keep restarting, then I finally gave up and repaired Vista, and now am asking how to get it to work with Oblivion, my main reason for XP at all.
