    Question

  • This forum is for discussing Windows 7 Beta only.  This sounds like a Windows Vista problem.  Please try one of the forums at: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windowsvistaitpro/

  • The the time and date of the log was from when I was installing Windows 7.

  • It may well be the case that the timestamps are during the timeframe you were allegedly installing Windows 7, but the cited log entries are most certainly from attempts to install updates to a Windows Vista operating system. While I have no doubt you may be experiencing issues doing an upgrade to Win7Beta from Windows Vista Ultimate, the log entries you posted have absolutely nothing to do with that process.
