When installing B2 on my ThinkPad T42 using Virtual CD 7 to mount the ISO, following all known advice about 'diskpart'/create partition ... I get to click OK to my locale choices, then get to paste my beta product key in and ZONK! I get a dialog that is
entitled 'Windows Setup' with a message stating:
"Setup failed to open the Windows image file."
looking into the logs in the Panther directory created by setup:
setup correctly locates the .WIM file on the mounted ISO image, but fails complaining that it is corrupt. GLE=0x570
"IBS SelectImages: Failed to retrieve the WIM file's XML info."
FYI: Virtual CD 126.96.36.199, and Virtual PC 2004 (5.3.582.27)...
This install.wim file is >3GB in size... I am going to purchase Nero ImageDrive to see if that can install B2 correctly. If so, looks like I have a bug in VCD 7.
Hope this helps anyone else having a similar problem.
What other ISO mounting tools are being used to mount the ISO image?
Nero ImageDrive solved the problem....
I will notify H&H (makers of VCD7)...
I use Daemon Tools... Very nice and it has plugins for the Explorer shell and through the media center (My Movies). Very sweet for DVD/CD emulation
I'm getting the same error in VPC installing from a PHYSICAL DVD! There must be something dodgy in Vista's installer right there.
For the record, VMWare installed Vista without a hitch.
