Installing Vista on a Fujitsu P1610

P1610 013No, I haven’t tried installing Vista on Miyagi, my Fujitsu P1610, because it’s just too darn functional for me with Windows XP 2005 Tablet Edition running on it.  I was pretty sure there would be a number of drivers that haven’t been released for Vista yet and I would have an incomplete setup.  Don’t get me wrong, that 80 GB hard drive is just screaming out for a Vista partition and I’m sure I’ll have a go at it before too long, but meanwhile I have been following the Vista adventures of Jimmy Leung on his blog.  Jimmy has been blogging about what works and doesn’t on the P1610, and he’s recently posted his reasons for returning to Windows XP.  Surprisingly the brick wall Jimmy ran into with Vista is not even P1610 specific, although it’s a big problem, at least for Jimmy and me.  BTW, Jimmy points out that the BIOS update that appeared on the Fujitsu support site recently is an older version than the one he’s already running.
