Vista freezes during installation after first reboot. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to install Vista RC1 on my second hard drive, all the files are copied to my computer, but when it restarts my computer, it freezes when it gets to the screen with the loading screen that has the copyright info. I have tried installing it from XP, and I tried booting from the disk. Both gave the same error.

    The same thing happened with Beta 2.

    This post here and here may be useful. Note that upgrade from Windows Vista Beta 2 to RC1 is not supported as far as I can remember.

    HTH.
