Can't upgrade from Win2008R2 Ent to the Windows Server 8 Beta - "cannot find a location to store temporary installation files"
2012년 5월 5일 토요일 오전 1:10
I'm getting the following error message when I try and run setup:
Windows Setup cannot find a location to store temporary installation files. To install Windows, make sure that a partition on your boot disk has at least 1237 megabytes (MB) of free space.
Error code: 0x80070490
I have penty of space (100GB on my C drive and 700GB on my D drive). My partition configuration is a little unusual (two disks - the C drive is a partition on one and the D drive is a software RAID/striped disk that spans both disks).
My tmp/temp environment variables were set to point to the D drive. I read a forum post that indicated this could be a problem so I changed them back to C: and still ahve the same issue.
I ran SFC /scannow and it reports no integrity violations.
I'm not sure how to continue...

2012년 5월 5일 토요일 오전 4:34Hi,
Try the following steps:
1. Backup your important data.
2. Switch SATA port with disk 0 and disk 1, or configure computer to boot from disk 1 in BIOS.
3. Boot the computer with Windows Server 2008 R2 installation disk, click “Repair your computer” in the following wizard, then launch “Command Prompt”.
4. In Command Prompt, type “d:\windows\system32\bcdboot d:\windows /s d:”, d:\ is the disk where your system installed, adjust it accordingly.
5. Boot the computer from disk 1
6. Try to perform a upgrade to see whether you get the same issue.
7. You can remove the original 100MB’s reserved partition on disk 0.

Do you by chance have the setup log files from the panther folder?
If so can you make them available for download?

I switched the boot drive order in the BIOS and booted from 2008R2 media. It wasn't able to do a repair because it was unable to detect the installation. :(

It looks like these logs were from the original 2008R2 installation. I assume that is what you were looking for? I have zipped my entire c:\windows\panther directory and have uploaded it to: http://media.wgaw.org/temp/panther.zip
I'm not sure how my partition table ended up like this, but it feels like the root of my problem is a non-vanilla configuration. I've decided that rather than wrestling w/ the upgrade process that I'm going to just back up my data, wipe my partitions clean and set everything up again.
Thank you both for your assistance!
