Upgrading Vista RC1 to RC2

The upgrade to RC2 wasn’t as smooth as it could have been.  After installation, on the final reboot, my machine blue-screened, rebooted, blue screened.  It was a never ending (seemingly) cycle.  It wouldn’t let me load Safe Mode because the install hadn’t finished.

Finally I selected “boot with last known good configuration” and it it loaded, and now everything appears to be ok.  Subsequent reboots haven’t had a problem. 


That was on my desktop machine.  My IBM ThinkPad T42P laptop upgraded fine, but it took hours.  I assume this is because I only had 11 Gig of free disk space.

More later on my opinions on Vista RC2 after I get time to play with it some.
