RC1 install/upgrade fail

Guest

Ok I have tried using DVD drive thats IDE, DVD Drive thats SATA.
Installing on Raid 0 or on a standalone drive.

All fail.

When I upgrade the screen goes black a while into the first windows startup
(doesnt ever get to a desktop). I leave it for 30mins nothing so I reboot and
it says The upgrade failed. reverting to your previous version of windows.

When I do a clean install the system just continues to reboot at the point
where it went black on the upgrade. The system does a memory dump sometimes
at the BSOD.

OK for PC

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Asus P5B Deluxe W/Wifi
2x1GB OCZ 1100mhz DDR2
Plextor 755SA DVDRW
Liteon Combo CDRW
X-FI
7950GX2
2x 150GB Raptor Raid0 or 500GB Hitachi standalone
Saitek Eclips keyboard,
Razer copper head mouse.

I have tried with everything but just the video card, motherboard, cpu, ram
hard drive and dvdrom.
No go

I have the same Issue... I've tried 3 different burns of the RC1 disc in 3+
attempts, once was an upgrade from XP Pro, once as a clean install and the
last being a clean install on a new re-download of the ISO...

DVD loads up fine from Windows to fresh Partiton, or as a Boot Disc. Will do
the init reboot (after files copy, then gets like 20% thru expanding files),
then when it gets to "finalizing the setup" (last bullet point) the green bar
gets to 70%ish (what looks like 80% overall), then the screen turns totally
off and the keyboard stops responding (caps lock doesnt dis/engadge... no
CTRL+ALT+DEL reaction, cept occational HDD or DVD ping).... on reboot, setup
rollback is the only Vista option left...

Toshiba Satellite A105-S4084
Intel Centrino Duo (Core Duo) 1.6GHz T2050, 533MHz FSB
1GB DDR2 677MHz RAM ([email protected] SOIDIMM)
120GB 5400RPM SATA Drive (3 partitions, C:WinMCE 2005, E:Vista test
Partition, F:Docs/Files... D:DVD SuperMulti drive)
Intel Centrino A/B/G WiFi
Intel GMA950 Dynamic VRAM Graphics Adapter (8 to 128MB)
Internal DVD/CD Burner

Also, does anyone know how to edit the Vista Boot loader? now I have "Older
Version of Windows" (which is fine, dual boot, WMC 2005), Microsoft Windows
Vista" (Last failed install, setup rollback didn't eliminate), "Microsoft
Windows" (from beta2, that RC1 didnt remove). I know how to edit from
Boot.ini, but Vista uses BCDEDIT.EXE and i cant figure out how to use it...
/? command not entirely helpful... is there a shell prog (something like
msconfig for xp for limited editing) or a way to directly edit the BCD file?

At last I found the solution on my own :)

Ok download the RC1 ISO again from microsoft. Burn at the lowest speed (4x)
then once burned copy the contents to your C drive and run the setup from the
drive. It will install in about 1hr 20mins.

:)

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for your Fix. It worked on my backup machine but not on my primary
machine. Tried it for about 5 hours today and it still brings up a black
screen after the first boot.
