    Hi ,

    I've just downloaded Windows Vista Beta 2 (32Bit , 4GB file) directly from
    MS site (Beta experience) .

    Right after entering the installation key (which I received from MS via
    email) and clicking "Next" , it seems that
    the setup hangs (there's no such noise from the harddrive - I've waited for
    about 10 or 15 minutes , and the
    setup didn't proceed . It's written "collecting information" at the
    bottom-left corner of the screen , but there's no
    such progress on the progress bar).

    Maybe I need a totally-clean ("fresh" , formatted) C:\ drive , with no OS
    installed on it , in order to
    install Windows Vista Beta 2? (can't I simply install Windows Vista Beta 2
    on another logical drive , eg. D:\ ?).

    My computer's configuration is :
    Pentium 4 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM , 80GB harddrive .

    Thanks in advance ,
    Lior .

    Please tell me whether you decided to do an upgrade or a clean install. Maybe
    I could assist you further. Thanks.

    Clean install on drive D:\ , not upgrade (I am trying to install Windows
    Vista Beta 2 directly from the DVD which
    I've just burnt with the ISO image file of MS).
