Windows 7: Windows 7 student upgrade install problems

Windows 7 student upgrade install problems

I downloaded my copy of the Windows 7 Premium 64-bit from Digitalriver, but it won't work on my computer. I understand that it's because I'm use 32-bit Vista, but from what I've seen on various places, people are able to at least unpack the .box files. I'm not even able to do that because for some reason any folder I put it in is read-only. I get this error:



Any ideas?

Anyone have a torrent of the install files? I have my key ready, and am ready to make an .iso to install this.. I just can't get passed this.

Hang in there.....Today is the first day any of us will have had a chance to see 'Upgrade Media' and it will take a few days to figure out how it is coded in regards to installation.

Do you think I would have less trouble starting with win xp 64-bit?

Have you tried another download yet?

I know nothing about .box files, but what are you using to open it?

It looks to me like the boot process for an upgrade might be different that a full version. If that is the case, then you might not be able to use the prior OS as needed.

I'm downloading it again at the moment.

I run the .exe and I assume it unpacks the .box files an extracts them into a folder as I have seen others have done without any issues like this.

I ran into this problem too, but I'm upgrading from Win XP x32. The solution was to go to folder properties and UNCHECK the read only option. Worked for me! hope it works for you! At least it can save you from redownloading and retrying a bunch of times.

It would not uncheck for me either on Vista and XP. Downloading it again seemed to work. I was able to get the files to extract and get the .iso ready, but had to get to work. Can't wait to see if it will install! Good luck guys!
