Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing?

    Question

  • Hello everyone!

    I'm using Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 (Dell XPS 420), and upgrading it to the RC. I burned the ISO file to a DVD the correct way, and made sure to set the "cversion.in" file to allow the Beta to 7000 instead of 7077. I also uninstalled all the programs it told me too, leaving there only one odd error message in the Compatability Report:

    "The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.
     -  Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing."

    Does anybody know how to fix this please?

  • Have you been able to upgrade to Windows 7 RC yet? Whatever modifications you made to cversion.ini may be the problem because that kind of thing is not supported (especially when it involves build 7077.)

    Hope things are well,

  • I'm going from Vista to RTM and gettng the same.  I rebooted.  Same block.

    Solved Restart flag is stuck on - Windows 7 Forums:

    Checking to see if it's the dvd software.

    Nope.  Gave up and did a clean install.  But FYI this is Vista to RTM and it's still being seen and thus not a beta issue.
