Build 7057 x-64 upgrade from 7048 x-64 fails ?

Hi guys

Can someone confirm that it's a general problem or have I just got a bad D/L.

If I try and UPGRADE from W7 build 7048 X-64 to Build 7057 X-64 it starts OK but after a while (during the expanding files stage) I get error -- some necessary files for installation cannot be copied ......???


Clean install seem to wok.

HA1 and checksums of my iso seem correct.

Actually upgrading from a beta to another beta is not a goood idea anyway but I want to make sure that I haven't got a bad D/L before I try an upgrade from a Vista installation.

Cheers
jimbo

If 7057 is truely the RC, then it probably does not allow upgrades from a beta version.... but I dont know if that is the case yet as I haven't tried it yet.

Hi there -- I'll have a look on some other forums as well to see if this problem has occurred already -- it's a pain being the early adopters sometimes

--then I'll restore a VISTA x-64 image and try an update from that.

The X-86 install went 100% smoothly and is running perfectly but I really want to get the X-64 version working.

On a spare machine as I've pointed out CLEAN install is fine but I need to test upgrade on a Laptop with a load of "Corporate" / "Work" type programs installed including access via a VPN.

Cheers

UPGRADE from 7057 to 7048 Works -- Yes it does
Hi guys If you want to revert back to build 7048 without having to do a fresh install and re-install all your programs you CAN actually do an "Update" from W7 7057 to 7048. You'll just get a Warning that the version is older than your current and that a device or two might not work --mine...

Back to 7048 (seems faster than 7057)
Hi everybody It's not that 7057 is bad or anything -- it's just that on 2 of my systems I seem to get better performance with 7048 (x-64) than 7057. As people have pointed out "Unofficial" or "Semi" official builds may have all sorts of debugging info in them and might be geared to solving...
