Yesterday I was thinking of trying out Whidbey on my Longhorn installation……So I popped in the Whidbey May build into the DVD drive and half-way through the installation it failed….which is pretty normal…..so I try again. This time it managed to install properly.
Guess what? After the reboot the OS becomes un-usable - the task bar was gone and the OS becomes unresponsive. Looks like I have to waste another morning reinstalling the OS. :-(
