After a second full install eveything looked and seemed to work great. Downloaded the Creative 32-bit Vista drivers for Audigy2 since I had no sound, and like after my initial install the mouse quit working again. I guess I'll try a third install, and go without sound. :(

Quick question: the legit key that MS provided, will it work with the full release?

I got one for a release candidate for x64 Pro a while back and still can't use it as my 5 year old system is too slow. Now that x64 Pro has been released, I'm hesitant to toss the cd I burned from a download from MS.

IE: it would save me $170 cdn if the key would work with a full release version.
