    Err I'm scared to post this. If its against the forum rules I'll gladly take it down ASAP :D but I dont think it is.

    Ok so my question is on installing longhorn build 4008. I can make it past "Copying install files" and into "Installing WinPE" but at about the end of that section it craps out and gives me an error, something like "Error copying files" and it quits. Now when I install it to a separate partition (H), it adds about 700MB of junk to my C:. I'm assuming those are the installation files. My C: is quite low on space so im wondering if its a problem. I have about 1GB left which is cuz i had to partition it to keep longhorn away from XP Pro. Has anyone else had this problem and knows of a simple fix, or should I just dump it already?

    As I said, I'll gladly remove it but I figured its worth a last-ditch effort.

    LH build 4008 is even worse than the last build. It's not even worth installing IMHO. I had it on my comp for 2 days and then got it off. It's unbearably slow, and full of bugs. It's friggin-darn Alpha code for goodness sakes!

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    download Sequoia View and see whicj all files are taking that 700MB on your C:
    If those files are required for installation than may be you can't do much about it but to decide whether to keep it or scrap it.


    about going against forum rules, well no-one will have any problems till you start talking about those "where to get from" and "how to get from things".

    One thing that I should mention here is that some of these alphas are full versions while some others are upgrade versions.

    Thanks guys.

    I know its not an upgrade because when I get the option to upgrade it blacked-out and says that you can only upgrade if your already running build 4000 or above.

    Thats cool mate, we all have a bad one sometime.

    I haven't tried Longhorn yet, its a tad early for me, I like to wait until its had a good airing and the guys on here give it the OK.
    I have XP on 2 rigs and find it way ahead of any of the previous OS's, so Lonhorn will need to be something special.

    :wow:

    Except Windows 98 (not SE), M$ has never disappointed its customers. Isn't it? :D
