Since Vista was released in Beta I have been looking for a moment to install it and to try it out. I specially wanted to install it on my Tablet PC.
I wanted to do a clean install so I equipped the Tablet with a new hard disk and tried to install beta 1 from DVD. After some time I got the famous blue screen. No success.
As it was a Beta 1 version I left it as it was and waited for the Beta 2 version.
When the Beta 2 version came out I tried the same routine and the same problem came up. I tried doing an upgrade install, the same problem.
The the RC1 version came out. The first install I did was on a virtual machine under VMware server. That worked like a charm. Then I tried to install it on the Tablet. Again a blue screen.
I guess the Tablet doesn’t support the Vista releases. The compatibility checker showed no problem but that is no guarantee.
