    When I attempt to install Windows Vista Beta 2 (Build 5384) on a new Virtual
    Machine, setup initiates correctly (615MB of RAM have been assigned to this
    VM). I enter my Product Key and then I get an error: Windows setup cannot
    continue because the disc image is corrupt...or something to that effect. I
    have tried this disc before, and it works properly. What could be the problem?

  2. Install from this disc from a physical machine to verify your media is good.

    It works fine for me on Virtual Server (free).

    When I insert the disc into the physical machine and assign it to the VM, I
    get this error: setup.exe - Bad Image "The application or DLL
    D:\Sources\SPQIZENG.DLL is not a valid Windows image. Please check this
    against your installation diskette." What does that mean?

    When I boot from my Windows Vista DVD, I enter the Product Key and then hit
    next. After a few seconds, this error message appears: Setup failed to open
    the Windows image file.

  5. Is this a downloaded image? If so burn again at the lowest speed possible.
    Also, the virtual cd drive in VPC cannot handle the dvd. I suggest that you
    take David Wang's hint and install with Virtual Server 2005 R2 (free).
    After you build the virtual machine you can use it in either VS or VPC.

  6. If the DVD does not work on a physical machine, then the problem is with
    your media. The Virtual Machine simply confirms that you have a bad DVD.

    There's little we can do with bad media/burn other than to tell you to do it
    again and correctly this time. If you downloaded, assure that the download
    was not corrupted. And that you burned the DVD alright. If you received a
    physical DVD, get a replacement from that source.
