    Doing a system restore and it appears to be hung on the "Windows is
    preparing to shut down..." blue/green swirly screen... HD light has been
    pegged, with minimal flickering, for close to 20 minutes now... that seems a
    bit long...

    Sounds like it's not working correctly, what number beta are you using. most
    of the early ones didn't. I did a restore on 5384.4 and it worked.

    Well... it took about 30 minutes, but I finally got the log on screen... but
    getting error that system restore did not complete successfully... no
    changes to files and settings... bummer.

  6. I did this once in x64, it took 30 minutes to establish that the restore
    point didn't work. I kept on picking dates further back in time and each
    time it took 30 minutes, but when it finally hit a date that worked it took
    less than 20 sec's.
