Windows Vista pre-RC1 Won’t Install on VMWare Professional 5.5.2.29772

So it looks like VMWare is not an option for installing the last build of Windows Vista that precedes RC1. VMWare doesn’t like the strange stuff Windows Vista is doing. Makes one wonder if Microsoft is explicitly trying to kill VMWare as a competitor to force us to use Microsoft Virtual PC.

But Virtual PC is crap, IMO, in comparison. It’s slow in comparison to VMWare, and it’s severely lacking in features (to say nothing of snapshots which I would never expect of VPC). You can’t even mount an ISO without starting the session first.
