      The game will also most likely be International from the beta stage. If you are a fan of the early days of RO, keep an open mind for ToS.

      They're translating it in Korean, English, and Japanese at the same time.

  3. Om nom nom Pizza~

  4. I-I'm totally sleeping right now~ yup! ZzzzZZZz~ not working on my computer trying to get dual boot working~ nope nope! Psst, I has this VMware program, but it only seems to want to deal with its proprietary non-"vhd" files, am I missing something or am I unable to stuff a vhd into it? Here I come.. tomorrow~ tomorrow I shall conquer you~!
  5. Hopefully so~ I'll have to try this tomorrow. Sleepy time for Mia, thanks for all your effort. :big_smile: Hopefully VMware will save our butts.
  6. I receive the following: windows\system32\winload.exe Status 0xC0000428 The digital signature for this file could not be verified Error Message Dat cam action. Also, the machine hasn't been powered back on since sysprep, if I opened this up on virtual machine it'd run setup since it's fresh sysprep.
  7. Makes me wonder how Daiyana setup her vhd / vm / easybcd entry to even get into the OS... further than we're getting. =p
  8. Sysprep was already done on the new drive, I can do it again if you think that would help, but I'm feeling a little grim.
  9. I'm just being silly and trying to keep my spirits up now that suddenly people are popping up out of the woodwork telling me it doesn't work. :P Yup.. just finished the reinstall as VHD.. I still get the same error~ it's.. it's your fault! Evil spirit! *Shakes fist all nonsensicle like!* :misdoubt: If it makes you feel any better, I love you and I'm kidding!
  10. I get the vibe sysprep may be a solution for you, as the virtual disk install is still setup for the hyper-v box's virtual hardware. Just hopefully it'll work for me too.
  11. Ughh~ I didn't realize you posted a link with a converter.. OH WELL! Fresh install, I mean, yeah I totally just deleted it on purpose, cause fresh install with non-win8.1 format just makes sense ofc~! Nnh~ no! You're supposed to be like~ \o/ Yay it works!
  12. Best of luck to you tomorrow Daiyana~ As for myself.. guess reinstalling as VHD for now~ manually set it up in disk management and just told it to use that one...
  13. Hmm Hyper-V automatically set it up as that format.. And there really isn't any option to pick simply VHD unless you're seeing something I'm not in this screen. Screenshot maybe if I manually just make the VHD in disk management and attach it later that would work~ *Sigh* Will it work if I just~ delete the "x"? ( From the file name in the wizard ) Lol
  14. Okay.. next roadbump. Sysprep done.. I boot to vhdx and now before I get to the windows load screen, I get an error stating windows couldn't start due to invalid signed or corrupted file. <much more gibberish of several more lines between here> Error 0xc0000428. I turned my hyper-v box back on after I booted to windows, verified sysprep seemed to have worked.. it had to go through setup again on the hyper-v box.. but doesn't seem to do that for my compy. Anywho.. ran sysprep again... general box checked, same deal when I boot to it again.. Here's my entry I'm using.. looks good to me~ until it gives me the winload.exe error when I try to boot to it. :< Entry #5 Name: Win7Ult BCD ID: {b90b8d19-dfe9-11e2-92cd-faa39594dcbf} Device: [C:]\Zion.vhdx Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
  15. Yeah, it would have indeed been easier if it didn't give me the middle finger. :feel_good: I seem to be able to make the VHD MBR partition within win8 using it's disk management util though, so that helps. Time to give this mounting thing a swing... ---- I return, and the news is not song and dance my friend. As per one of the comments in the article, the installation doesn't appear to be functioning on the vhd like it used to prior to RC1. I receive an error when trying stating "Error 0x80300024" at the bottom of the installer when attempting to install anyway despite it saying I cannot. ----- At least hyper V seems to let me install the OS.. I'm a little worried if I botched up the network settings though.. only option I had is "not connected"... xD Does that mean I wont has the interwebs?! How can I prance around with my floppy Lyn ears if I cant access the interwebs? QQ! ---- Hmm.. when I go to the settings for the thinger there's a button under Network Adapter that is a shiny checkbox that says VLAN ID "Enable virtual LAN identification" is that what I need? Or should I turn that back off? :embarrassed:
