I am having installation problems of MS Vista Beta 2 downloaded from Microsoft MSDN.
-Windows Vista Beta 2 (x86) - DVD (English)
I had a dual boot of Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista Beta1 (starts up first)
System specification are:
Compaq Deskpro EN Series, Intell Pentium II, 349MHz, 256MB Ram, 9GB disk space.
Tried several times...
1) Installation from a PC with Windows XP SP2 on it
See attached error message.
2) Installing Vista from a Bootable DVD
I get the Blue screen of death message sayingâ¦.
The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please Contact your system vendor for and updated BIOS
0x000000A5 (0x00000002, 0x805DF7A0, 0X8232F008, 0X806D7A28)"
Did anyone come across these problems when installing Beta 2?
Next thing I did was formatted c:\ using Windows XP SP2 to remove Vista Beta 1 and installed Windows XP SP2. I get the same error message as before, when I click the Install Now button.
Any suggestion as to what I should do? Can I still keep the other half of my previously installed Windows XP SP2 and install Windows Vista Beta 2 on top of the newly installed Windows XP SP2 as an upgrade?
