Installation reboot loop

Posted: 06-25-2006, 12:05 PM

I was using Vista Beta 1 and had reinstalled it a few times and but had to
stop using it after the last time I tried to reinstall, it just went into a
reboot loop and refused to complete the installation, I found out that many
others were having the same problem at that time and there was no solution
available. I just got beta 2 and tried to install it thinking that the issue
would be solved with this release but it still goes into a reboot loop. I
would really like to start using Vista again so if anyone has been able to
figure out a solution to this problem please let me know.

Thank you very much.

After the first boot from DVD ("press any key to boot from cd/dvd"), you
need to let it reboot from the hard drive (DON'T "press any key to boot from
cd/dvd") to continue the installation.

I am not pressing any key, so that is not the problem.

Tried that and it didn't work, booted to windows not the DVD.
