Hmmm. Not doing it for me. I'm using the 64-bit version. I think I've disabled everything, but it just will not connect. I can connect to domain file shares OK, just not printers. I can see them,...

Did you solve this?

Thanks for the feedback. I found some memory and upped the system to 1.25GB, but no change. There are no errors I have seen during installation. It seems to get to a point where it is "completing...

W7 x86 build 7000 fails on install...
