I didn't get that message. But, after installing yesterday, I rebooted many times back into Windows 7 and Again into Windows8. I switched off for the night. Today I found that I could boot into Windows 8 but Windows 7 stalled before the desktop. I inserted the Windows 7 install DVD and did a startup repair. All is well again. Oddly, it didn't destroy the Windows boot manager (I have a dual boot - my choice - in separate partitions. It normally did this in the past.
Worked for me, but now it's flashing with a black background and white letters. Please restart your PC. I'll post a screen in a new thread.
I just installed vmplayer on another windows 7 65bit Pro computer
pointed the 64 bit iso that i downloaded from micrososft as per Brinks instructions on his tutoral
worked like a charm
in fact it is setting up Windows 8 as i am typing this
btw does anyone know if Micrososft will update this version and send out another Beta? just curious
As information, I have a Dell Latitude D600 and a Dell Inspiron 600M, they are essentially the same system, the 600M is 1.6 GHZ and 1 Gig of memory, the D600 is 2 GHZ and 2 gig of memory. I started the install process on the D600 (with an Windows XP base) and at the first 'restart' I received an 0xc0000260 error. It was not a blue screen error, it was earlier in the process. Long story short, I moved the drive to the 600M system and the install process completed and the Win 8 system runs (with audio issues). If I put the drive back into the D600 I get the blue screen 0xc0000260 message after a message that the system is going into 'automatic repair'. Setup on the D600 shows a 'boot speed' option, other than that I can see no difference in the hardware configuration. They are both at the latest A16 BIOS level. I have occasionally gotten an error code "file \hiberfil.sys 0xc0000411" instead of the 0xc0000260, the first time I received this was after slowing the boot speed, but it is not a consistent result of changing the boot speed.
