A couple people have left comments saying they get an error message like the following when they try to install Vista in a VM:
“The instruction at 0x1fee7a6d referenced memory at 0x02b8bd0f. The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of 0xc0000185.”
I haven’t seen this happen, but enough people have mentioned it that I thought it would be nice to start a dialog about it. After all – that’s what blogs are for, right?
Darax asks a good question:
What software are you folks using to burn the ISO to a DVD? Or if it’s a Virtual DVD program what program? Version would be helpful too.
One perhaps odd sounding question-but what brand of media?
I’m increasingly of the opinion that this has to do with the installation media, whether it’s a physical disc or a mounted ISO. If you’re having this problem, please answer Darax’s questions.
