Going Vista

So what is the story with Vista?  You've read the hype, you've seen the reviews but I bet not many have messed around with it.  I will take challenge and not only install, but upgrade my current Windows XP virtual machine running in Parallels to Ultimate Vista.

Basically I am doing this because I do not want to install Vista on a clean image and have to reinstall all the software that would require re-configuration.  What I have on my VM that I hope does not break in Vista is the following:

  • Live Writer
  • Visual Studio 2005
  • Office 2004
  • Visual Source Safe

Not to bad huh?  I will keep posting my progress made when moving to the new OS by Microsoft.

As of now, I have just upgraded to the latest Parallels version which should let me upgrade to Vista...launch the installer and TADA:
