So i’ve finally done it. Last Friday I decided to download Vista Ultimate via MSDN. It finished about midnight, and shortly thereafter I began the install. For the most part it went smooth, without a hitch. So now after we’ve fixed a TIP problem (no HID drivers) I’ve got the machine running decently.
