Microsoft does not install:
1. Latest BIOS.
2. Set the BIOS settings.
3. Install drivers for video cards, motherboards, USB and other things.
All this is up to the OS installer to perform. In short, you may want to ask the supplier to finish the install if the hardware is 3D capable.
I recently encountered a problem within Diablo2. When running the video test I get a " no video modes " error
It would seem that this game which was working, now doesn't as there seems to be no 3d acceleration??
