Thread: installing vista after mounting with daemon tools

  1. #1

    Default installing vista after mounting with daemon tools

    well i've mounted an iso image of vista 32 bit version 5342 with daemon but when i try to install it tells me the drive doesn't have suffiecient room, so really i have two questions number one i'm curently running the orginal august release of vista, is that a upgrade imposibility {i'm runnin a dual boot so i can delete it and install the new one if need be} and also what do i have to do to change the default drive {hdd} that windows wan's to install to

    Default ...

    I recommend burning the vista image and then booting from the disc. You cannot install an OS through a mounted image file unless you're installing it into a VM (ex. Virtual PC 2004, VMWare).

    Default I Simply mount.... :)

    Hello,

    Exemple is simple!

    I have a 160gb hd partition in 2
    - First partition (120gb)
    - Second Partition ( 40gb)

    Xp is installed on the first partition and i Simply mount the image of Vista (all) with Daemon or alcohol120!

    I choose the custom install and choose the second partition!
    Vista installation starts and that's it 20 min later you are on the desktop of your vista !

    When you machine boots up you will have the choice to boot in xp or in vista!

    Hope i helped!

    Default Sorry...too quick thinking....

    I realise i might have read the questions too quickly...

    If i have an empty HD and i want too install vista (All Versions till 5342 ) without the image burned on a disc.... I mount the vista on my Laptop and install trought the network adapter...

    All Works fine....but slower install than mount on the pc itself!

    Sorry for the first reply!
