#96 Bluescreen on Windows Vista during install

Daniel Tiru


The coLinux installation crashes Windows Vista Beta 2,
this is probably cause of the TAP-Win32 driver
installation (have removed all the other components
during install)

    Please don't submit bugs against an as of yet released OS,
    if you do, then, please submit patches along with the bug
    reports, but don't expect coLinux project to official
    support an as of yet released product.

    I think Tiru's report is very well valid. this is an
    opportunity for the developers to see why colinux is
    crashing Vista. Most probably the solution would be
    relatively easy for them to find.

    I am currently testing Vista and want to run my Ubuntu
    inside Vista using Colinux, but doesn't seem to be possible
    because of this bug.

    People lik eus complaining about his problem will increase
    day by day.

    Best regards,

    We really don't have the resources to support yet another
    OS. Especially one that could change between now and when
    we fix the bug. At any rate... Using SLiRP (and therefore
    avoiding any issues with PCAP or TAP) I'm able to boot
    coLinux in Vista...
    http://firechief.dyndns.org/colinux/Vista-coLinux.JPG is a
    screen shot of it... I had to disable Vista's Software DEP
    (must be new to Vista as I've never had that problem on XP
    on the same box), so be sure to disable DEP either Hardware
    or Software DEP, it could very well be your problem.
