Vista RC1 on a Tatung TTAB-B12D Tablet PC

Published by at 14:08 under Microsoft,Tablet PC

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.

    I’m looking for an A5 size PDA. I know about all the tablet PC’s out there, and I know it may sound strange, but the power of a Tablet PC is not needed.
    Basically something running Pocket PC (or equivalent) with Calendar, Schedule etc, touch screen.
    Any ideas?

    Peter,
    Why don’t you look at one of these UMPC’s.
