Hello! Today I'm at fatal problem, because when I tried install Windows Vista build 5342 or upgrade from Windows XP SP3 after reboot appears a BSOD and stops installing. I'm using VMware Workstation 10. I think the ISO is damaged or I should use other emulator for virtual machines.

Or just change Hardware Compatibility. (try 6.5-7.x and see if you get any luck.)

I've tried compatibility 6.5-7.x and same problem as 10.
I installed this build in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and works!
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 is better than VMware Workstation for Windows Vista builds.
