My vista / office 2007 beta 2 migration has been completed, both my home and work machines have been smoothly rebuilt with the new configuration. Most of the issues I had faced with the vista beta 2 release have been resolved and now not only I feel pretty confident working in the new platform but productive as well, as overall System speed has been increased from the previous built.
The new OS looks great even on my work PC which does support Aero Glass user interface as the video display adapter is old and not supported . I plan on getting a cheap newer one to enable it though, as soon as possible.
The only problem I’m facing so far is mounting iso image files. On my old XP based system I used Microsoft’s Virtual CD-Rom Control Panel to mount iso images files instead of burning them on DVDs. When I try to use it on my Vista machines I get various errors such as “mount failed” or “drive remove failed” even though I’m running it with administrative privileges (UAC). Sometimes it works though without producing any error but even then I cannot access the mounted iso virtual drive.
