Getting Vista RC1 to run on VMWare

Just like some time earlier this year, Build 5600 (RC1) of the Windows Vista OS has difficulaties with VMWare. Fortunately, life is somewhat easier this time around: If your problem is that Vista seems to freeze during installation at the “Windows is load…” text stage, you should try to add the following lines to your .VMX file:

svga.maxWidth = “640”
svga.maxHeight = “480”

Thanks to Joel on Software for this tip.
