Re: Been using Vista RC2 for 2 weeks

I've been getting random reboots every hour or so (never the same, but roughly that time frame) and I was getting suspicious. Its very counter-productive.
On a slightly different note, when I try to install Windows XP Pro on a seperate partition, I think something goes wrong with the Boot.ini (or Windows Vista equvalent) and it gives me a disk-reading error. Any way to remedy this?
Aren't you getting a message that windows will shut down? Since it's rc2, it'll expire and I believe it will let you get into vista for a couple of hours....something like that. Google it and you'll see.
