Vista Beta 2 not installing

M

Matthew Yost

I'm trying to install Windows Vista Ulitmate Beta 2 on a machine and I'm
getting a couple different errors.

1) When trying to boot the machine up, I get a Windows Boot Manager error
stating that it doesn't like one of the removeable devices.

2) When trying to upgrade a Windows XP SP2 box, the install gets thru the
copying of files and then gets an error stating "An error occuring while
laying images down". And the instal bails.

Anyone know how to fix these?

Thanks, with the help!

I tried the fresh install on a new drive and it worked fine. I did find
that I had to re-run the install a couple times before it worked though but
it is up and working now.

Thank you!
