  • Can you try a clean install and see if that works better for you? I have heard that upgrades don't have a high success rate.

  • For those with problems upgrading to Windows 7 RC, I suggest doing a nondestructive clean install. This will let you keep all the files you previously had, while doing a clean install of Windows 7 RC at the same time. However, you will likely have to reinstall your programs.

  • What resources does your system have available? You may want to try repartitioning and doing a dual boot scenario if your machine is up to it. Your options depend on your system. We could help you more if you could give us more info about what you have and what you would like to have as a final result.
