I'm running Halo 2 off of XP, but i have a couple of questions i would like answered

1. Since the game is working and it runs sooo much better than vista is there anyway to be able to get the achievements for this game? i ask because I'm still able to stay connected on windows live the only problem is when ever i start a new level, it says that my checkpoints doesn't match the online checkpoint and it says to restart the level causing an infinite loop.

2. When i try to load multi-player, i can get into an actual lobby and talk with people, but when the halo 2 loading screen comes up, it says i need to insert the original disk even though the original disk i put the product key is in.

Someone please help me!

You can't unlock achievements or play online using XP. You'll need Vista.

Yes you can unlock achievements and play online using other OS other then Vista...I have Windows 7 and my teammate has XP and we both play online and we both have the achievements!
