Howcome in the builds of Vista like Build 5048 there was a bug if you tried to install it in VPC so that it wouldn't recognize the Virtual HD, whereas in the earlier Longhorn builds, there wasn't?

Because build 5048 was a very bad build? The sound in that build is killed. You could fix it of course.

Some early WIM Setup applications had problems with recognizing the HDDs, other with formating them, also the 4074's one had problem with recognizing pointer device... ;)

I had problems with the Build 4039 setup program, it recognized the HDD, refused to format it saying I need approximately 3GB of space to install Windows even though the HDD was 8GB in size and unformatted. I had to go to the Windows XP setup program, let that format the drive and just before it started copying the files, reboot the VM and boot from the Longhorn iso again. Only then would it properly recognize the drive.
