    Failed installation

    I have IBM X40 Laptop with additional External USB disk running winxp SP2
    with IE7 beta 2.
    I have tried to install vista beta 2 on the external disk and the following
    happens:
    1. Installation fail - When trying to boot the vista you get:
    \windows\system32\winload.exe 0xc000000e
    2. When you try to rollback installation you get error saying rollback
    failed. A second attempt to rollback open command prompt in
    x:\windows\system32 and nothing happens.
    3. In my old winxp IE7 dispaly empty pages , uninstalling IE7 did not did
    not change the situation.

    You cannot install Vista onto an external USB connected hard drive. It will
    not boot from an external USB connected hard drive.

    Re: Failed installation

    If you get Vista to work from USB HDD please let us know how :-)

    So far I've only heard that it is not possible. If it did work it would
    likely be very very slow.
