Faust: Fortunately the black screen is an easy fix. What surprises me is that your first build, which was done to a location in "My Documents" actually worked. The issue with the black screen is a permissions issue. When WinBuilder compiles the VistaPE image, the permissions from the build folder are inherited by the final build. Since you built to a folder in "My Documents" the build would inherit your user permissions when instead it needs to have system permissions. The fix is to move the WinBuilder folder to the root of the directory structure; for example, at C:\WinBuilder. Just cut and paste it from where it's currently located to C:\, then repeat the build process and then VistaPE should boot correctly.
