flynntargart Posted August 7, 2005 Share Posted August 7, 2005 I finally got permision to use my companies MSDN subscription and set up a test box at the office to play with Vista. But I've been told to install it on a VPC to test on, before I get to format a computer.Anywho, I'm not very impressed with the installer. It's clean and all, but it seems very slow. In the first portion of the setup, with the large progress bar at the bottom, I could set my mouse on the bar, and not moving the pointer, use it as a refrence point to make sure it was still running.But after the reboot, it comes up to a screen that simply says:Completing installation... Do not restart your computer during this time.. My pointer is now an hour glass, and the progress bar at the bottom is no longer a complete bar (i'm assuming) but a smaller bar that is very quickly moving.However, the bar has been going from 0 to 100% at about the same rate, for the better part of two hours, with no visable changes to any other element of the screen. No new text, no new pointer, nothing.Should I call this frozen? wait it out? I'm lost here, so far I'm about 3 hours (from boot to now) into install, is this normal?System:Host - WinXP Pro SP2, 1.5gig ddr, 1.5gig AMDVPC - build 582, 512 ram, high CPU priority Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
