Windows Vista build 5342 BSOD

Post by Caveria »

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.
Windows 7's end support is on January 14, 2020! It's time upgrade to Windows 10! Windows 8.1 also is supported but not Windows 8!

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.
