Dual Boot Activation? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a dual boot of Vista BETA Build 5600 RC1 on the second drive (:D)beyond my Validated XP Home.  Vista is in charge of WinBoot yet I changed the primary OS back to XP Home from Home. 

    I used the supplied DVD from MS only once before, and totally wiped that install last December or so from that PC. 

    I can not get a Validation to happen on this Install.  I believe, if memory serves, it indeed Validated the first install.

    Could this be a result of the dual boot?

    Do others have this issue?  Or does BETA not Validate?

  • I'm sorry I can't be much help.  Unfortunately, since your build is RC1 there could be many reasons validation isn't working for you at this point.  If you'd like to run a build of Vista that will validation I'd suggest getting an RTM version.  Thanks Terry.
