Nope.I get an rsync failure at about 70%.
First time it happened I was away from my desk, so didn't see the message, it timeouts the error message and then shows "Installation complete".
I spent twenty minutes scratching my head when it wouldn't boot the system after that, tried the install again and saw the message.there's nothing that I can find at the Linspire forums or FAQs regarding this problem, only a message on a board saying saomeone had tried doing the install from a magazine cd, and it din't work, so they complained to th mag, who said they'd only done the install on a clean disk, in native mode, not through VMware :(

I did install Linspire/Lindows on VPC by Microsoft on a XP Pro workstation, it crash on VMWare and.. anyways it's so slow (on VPC), you don't want to install Lindows for any reason

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
