I just tried it on a real install and it detected my 2nd partition as empty. So now I want to try it on vmware but it hangs on the loading screen. Is there a way to get it working in vmware?

Both Vista and Longhorn have compatibility issues with VMWare and Virtual PC. Some builds work well, some not at all. MS has private betas of Virtual PC 2007 which corrects these issues.

I am one of those beta testers; you might want to go into Connect and see if you can enter the program :)
Windows is a 32-bit extension to a 16-bit graphical shell for an 8-bit operating system originally coded for a 4-bit microprocessor by a 2-bit company that can't stand 1-bit of competition.

do your beta testing on VMware Workstation 6 with debug disabled, it will save you a lot of headache.
