Thread: Not able to install Vista... Going Crazy

  1. #1
    Ok I've downloaded 3 different versions of Vista Ultimate 64bit

    I'm positive my computer supports 64 bit.

    Since my Current Windows Xp is 32bit I know that I can't use DaemonTools to load it from there.

    So I've tried the slowest possible burning to a Dvd one came out to be a German version and that really pissed me off because it didn't say that anywhere.

    The Second one was English and ran fine on boot than it came to extracting it and it stayed at 0% untill coming into a 0x00700817 error.

    The 3rd one was an unatended version and just wouldn't even load up. I've having the worst luck with this right now and wasted the last 2 days doing this.

    I've wasted 5 dvds because I've used Alcohol 120% and Nero both have failed me.

    Is there any possible way of booting in a virtual drive from Daemon Tools? If anyone could just help me with getting anything to work would be greatly appreciated. Oh if you haven't gotten it yet I've trying to dual boot. I've already got the drive split.

    Im not sure of an answer to your problem but looking at you sig stats, 1gb ram is not enough to run ultimate even if you got it installed, it is recommended 2gb at least

    There's a good version on PiSexy:

    I happen to know it's got seeds (but only 3), and it works. You'll have to look back to the end of May to find it though.

    I accidentally got the German version too.

    Or you could get a legitimate version and try installing that. I got my legitimate version for free. If you go to college, there is a high chance of MSDN offering one to you for free. Vista business is pretty badass, and 1 gig of ram is PLENTY to run it.

    Why bother with Vista anyway? If you have a 1Gb RAM PC then XP is good enuff. I have a very decent PC here but still Vista seems slow so I switch back to XP x64.

    What's an oxymorn?

    ...and we'll have no swithing (whatever it is) in this forum, thankyouverymuch; this is a family area and there's kids about.
