I can't install Longhorn 4011. I'm using VMware Player 4.0.1 build-528992.
If I simply extract 4011 install.wim and insert it into the 4008 iso (I use UltraISO), during the file copy it says: "An error occured while copying files". I downloaded the 4011 iso twice, so I think it is not corrupted (its size is 664,709,120 bytes). Moreover, 4015 setup worked by using this same method.
Then I tried Longhorn Packet 1.1 by Pwned ( viewtopic.php?t=14327 ), but I can't install neither 4008 nor 4011 nor 4015. For example, my steps for 4015 are: 1. I boot from CD 2. modules loaded -> I press a key 3. easy setup -> I press Y 4. format hard drive -> I press Y 5. computer should be rebooted -> I press a key 6. rebooting 7. I boot from CD 8. modules loaded -> I press a key 9. easy setup -> I press Y 10. format hard drive -> I press N 11. I click "Install Longhorn" 12. welcome -> product key -> license agreement -> installation destination (i tried both to format and not to format) -> computer name -> file copy 13. "Phase 1 of setup has completed. Your computer will restart in a moment to begin phase 2." 14. rebooting
At this point: - if I boot again from CD, it will restart from phase 1 - if I boot from hard drive, it will say: "NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" (clarification: the floppy drive is disconnected)
