I seemed to have a problem during the installation, it said something like Setup cannot prepare setup for the next phase.

By any chance, I got a corrupt ISO?

Did you set the right date for the version of LH you're trying to install? It must be set to around the compile date of the build, otherwise you get an error during installation with most of the builds.

this error happens with builds that dont format properly, it sometimes pretends to format, and attempt to continue but cant because they dont formant.

I've also seen this happen with a lot of RAM (1GB or more) and beta 1 builds (51xx/52xx). Please tell us the actual build (number) you're trying to set up

not exactly, you just have to format it with a disc that works, such as an xp disc. as soon as its formatted, eject and restart the computer, then you should be able to select it and not need to format it.

The formatter in the Vista betas often doesn't work, that's the issue.

That's the point. In the installer, it appears to have worked fine, and it seems to have formatted, and it shows this. But it hasnt.

I get it now! So all I have to do is,

Use XP's partition manager and eject after formatting and load 5048?

There is a problem.

I got the same error. It happened on 3 machines. 1 of them worked.

It must be a corrupt ISO.
