FYI, its not me who asked for help, its you.Which motherboard. Which graphics card. Partitioning scheme on HD. Why do you feel you dont need to provide any info.And anyways, build 5270 is old by 8 months, its useless even to say that it has bugs, since it DOES. And moreover, the server build has not got any attention yet, use the standard version instead. Get build 5342 from connect.

u mst b working on the beta version..and there could be some bugs in that..moreover i dont think vista wouldnt support the fat file system...i once installed longhorn beta on my pc..and it ws awful..there wsnt ne software support... infact it didnt even detect my sound card..so i advice u to wait for the final product to release :D

Dude, login to microsoft connect.Get the build released yesterday - 5342.It supports all my hardware & fat32/ntfs & 32-bit XP drivers work fine on it.And almost all of the software I use everyday, runs fine on Vista.Games dont run well. But this is expected, not a surprise at all - gotta wait for the RCs, for optimized builds.
