Vista 5472

Yesterday I upgraded my Vista Beta2 machine to the latest build 5472. The upgrade completed successfully but took about 4 hours to finish! So far I have found the following problems:-

I have a Sony VGN-A497XP laptop with an ATI X600 screen. Since upgrading to 5472 my max resolution has dropped from 1920x1200 to 1600x1200. I’m not happy with this!

There are now 3 devices without drivers. Windows update cannot find them.

The memory stick still does not work

Laptop extra buttons (volume up down, CD eject etc) still do not work.

Welcome Centre->Setup Devices does not work as it says reinstdrvs.exe does not exist.
