Windows XP Beta 2 doesn't work

Post by ATeamInc »

I am trying to upgrade to Windows XP build 2462 over from Windows 2000 in VMware. It installed fine but upon bootup it always BSoDs at the "Welcome" Screen. Any ideas?

PS: I have VMware tools installed and I am using the Arabic-Localised build, upgrading from 2000 Arabic Localised.

EDIT: Safe Mode works, but I am still not sure what the problem is.

EDIT 2: Changing the video driver didn't do anything.

Why not use fresh install?

Did little bit of research, found from here, It says one of software or driver error, Uninstalling VMWare Tools or Fresh Install maybe fixes the issue.
Thinking of the past...

But the problem is that I am doing all this just to get VMware Tools, since the broken Windows Installer included with 2462 is useless. :(

Not sure if this applies to VMware too.
I've tried using VirtualBox Guest Additions which doesn't work on 2428 and 2465.
Try using Win2k vmware tools. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. You'll have to make do with what you have. Sorry!
