Windows 7: Please help! Windows 7 RTM Install stuck!

Please help! Windows 7 RTM Install stuck!

I did not see anything on this, but if this problem has been posted already, I apologize. I am trying to upgrade my Operating System from Windows Vista x64 to Windows 7 x64. I ran the Windows 7 Upgrade advisor and had no problems. So I continued and ran the installer. Everything seemed fine, it back everything up and the Operating System installed without issues. While transferring my files and settings back, the installer simply stops at 62%. I have tried this 3 times. I have uninstalled anythign I find unneeded and it still will not work. As to save time with things I have already tried, let me reference the 60+ posts about this on the TechNet forum: Windows 7 Upgrade From Vista to RTM not progressing, stuck at 62%
I have installation logs posted there, along with comments from ~20 other people there. I come here to ask for more help because nothign has worked and nothing has come in from Micrsoft, so I believe this woudl be a very good site to look for more help.

Thank you all in advance

Welcome IMasonAZ,
Please fill in your computer system specs in the lower left hand corner. It will help all of us to know more about your problem. Some have had problems with more than 2gb memory on the MB at the time of install for the first time. Where did you get the RTM build that you are trying to install ? Which version are you upgrading ?

We have a lot of great members here that will sort this out when we have more info.

Specs filled out. It might be that I have more than 2GB. I haven't tried that. I obtained my RTM through the TechNet website. Not sure what you mean which version... The only RTM is Windows 7 Ultimate. I am going from Windows Vista Ultimate x64 to Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Thank you!

Edit: I filled out the system specifications, but I guess it only shows your operating system?
Edit2: Figured out I'm just slow and didn't see the drop down :X
