Vista RC2 setup waits infinitely while gathering files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I'm trying to install RC2 over an upgraded RC1 and setup (running from within windows) seems to hang when "gathering files" reaches 66% (the process does not show any CPU or IO activity in task manager). I've tried running setup from DVD or HDD to no avail. Waited for 6 hrs, still nothing. Booting from the DVD gives me a bsod before I get to see any choice. Tried removing all unnecessary h/w, no change. Any suggestions?

    TIA,

    John
