I've tried both of those and still ended up with a system that wouldn't run LinuxMCE. I'm going to try again after the install and see if I can convince it to behave. Just frustrating because I have the same motherboard that was in the video demo. I hope 1.1 is a lot better.
How the heck do you do it? I can install fine if I only want to use vesa or the nv drivers, but I have yet to figure out how to get the nvidia drivers installed without killing the thing. I've tried installing them before, after, and during the linuxMCE install. None of it works. So what is the secret to getting the great "out of the box" experience that was described in the video?
