Vista Beta2 Installation Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received the Vista beta2 DVD from Microsoft.
    So when I was installing (doing fresh install) , after entering the product activation key , (provided in the DVD cover), I get this message :
    "Setup failed to open the Windows image file"
    & I am not able to proceed further.

    Also when I just put the DVD ,  to see the contents, it tries to autorun and gives this message:
    " The application or DLL G:\sources\SPWIZENG.DLL is not a windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette"

    And when i  see the Readme file, which says :

    "For important information that you should know before you install these products, see Setup.htm in the \Docs folder of the DVD."

    But I am not able to find any Setup.htm file

    Pleas help how to proceed now? Is the DVD provided by Microsoft itself is corrupt?

    I tried with another similar DVD but facing the same problem.

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the difficulities you met in installing Vista Beta2. From your description, it is very likely the DVD media was corrupted or your DVD rom have some difficulties in reading this media.

    Could you please try other media or try to read from different dvd ROM?
