Vista CTP 5308 - No Nero Image Drive...

I just found out the hard way that low-level drivers like the Nero driver for the Image Drive feature may not be compatible with Vista at all. Right after I activated the driver, Vista crashed with a BSOD and I wasn’t able to boot back into it, not even in safe mode. I was able to use the Vista installation DVD to boot into the system recovery tools and restore the system from there using the last restore point. I’m sure this may be happening because I’m still on Nero 6… they never managed to explain to me why I should be updating to 7, maybe this is the first good reason.

Update: I can’t find any tool that lets me mount iso images on Vista… Microsoft’s own Virtual CD Control Panel doesn’t work either. Any hints?

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
