I am running Windows Vista Beta 2 on an AMD Athlon 64 machine with a NVIDIA
GeForce 7300 GS and 1 GB system memory. After Vista boots basic files and
loads the GUI (either from the DVD in setup or from the HDD), the OS stops
responding completely. I can't move the mouse or use the keyboard at all.
When booting from the DVD for setup, this only happens sometimes, but from
the HDD, this happens every time, at varying points in startup. I can boot
in safe mode with networking, but normal startup is impossible.
