Windows 7: Upgrade fails : HELP

Upgrade fails : HELP

My upgrade from 7100 to 7264 failed. I had the same problem when upgrading to 7100 and had to reformat my drive. Here's the problem: at some point when transfering files and system settings (2nd step I believe) the C drive becomes currupted somehow. The OS still runs and boots, but the drive shows up as "access denied." The sizes under properties are all 0.

I'm using the computer to post this so it still runs, but the drive is desperately crippled. I think the partition table is messed up somehow.

Any ideas?

Hi bigdaddie, welcome to the forums.

Where did you get the ISO? (no links please).

It could be that it's either a bad ISO, bad burn or both. Also, what speed did you burn the DVD? I recommend 4x or slower.

Clean installing W7 x86 is no problem. But 1) upgrading Vista x86 to W7 x86 fails and automatically rolls back to Vista, and 2) attempt to clean install W7 x64 results in BSOD when rebooting to finalize the process. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
