Part of the leak by grabberslasher from the Longhorn Pack released on 26/01/2020.
By default it will lock up in the 2nd stage of setup, making this build uninstallable without a 'patch'.
The screen just goes black when you are in the GUI stage of the setup, BetaWiki has an artciel explaining about how it fails. You can read it here: https://betawiki.net/wiki/Windows_Vista_build_5000_(vbl_core.040808-2000)
As it is the problem of Win32k.sys
, you can use the Win32k.sy_
from the ISO of the next day (040809) and insert it into the ISO before installation. It should then install fine.
