Windows 7: upgrade from 7000 to 7068 FAIL

Solved:upgrade from 7000 to 7068 FAIL

I tried upgrading my Windows 7 build 7000 x64 to build 7068 x64. Some time into the upgrade and error message appeared saying that a file failed to install and thus the upgrade was unsuccessful. If it is something wrong with my iso image of 7068 please direct me to where I can get a good copy of 7068 via private message or in a reply to this post.

If you guys need the exact error code I can run the install again but I'm not going to if I don't have to.

Intel Core 2 Q6600 @3.0 ghz
EVGA nForce 790i ultra sli
Corsair XMS3 4094MB PC10600 DDR3 1333MHz
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra




EDIT: Solved, just had to run the install from a disc instead of a virtual drive

If you had a working copy of the 7000 on you may have elected to install the 7068 to another drive or partition or simply wipe the 7000 primary to see a clean install of the 7068 build. The upgrading from one build to the next can pose problems especially when trying it with beta versions of an OS.

As far as any leaks you have to run your own web search for the most part along with looking out for "fakes". You are always taking a gamble with any torrent sites to start with. The exact error code provided here would certainly be more usefull since it may be pointing to another problem other then incompatibility issues.

I turned off all overclocking and got all the way to the very final stage of the upgrade installation. Then I suddenly got a blue screen of death with physical memory dump error. So I'm going to run the install again and hope it was just an intermittent problem.

Since this *is* a Beta OS, I recommend that you don't upgrade, especially as it seems as if you're not an avid beta tester - any problems that you subsequently run into may in fact be relevant only to the upgrade, and it would put an otherwise rock solid OS in a bad light in your eyes....

Even on with the first installs here of 7 for the first 32bit and first for the 64bit some interesting problems came up but were seen to. The 64bit was installed on a separate before the second being a dual boot with Vista on the first. The separate install failed right off for some unknown reason.

The second being a custom install to the second primary not upgrade over Vista by any long shot proved strong while the first custom for the 32bit 7000 foobar city! I later setup a stand alone dual boot of the existing XP install with 7 on the second drive with the Vista host unplugged isolating the Vista boot sector from change. So far so good despite a few software bugs at times.

The old boot off of the dvd for a clean install or second partition option not replacement generally will avoid problems unless you are ready to try and try and try even again if something else gets in the way preventing a good upgrade just because there are all best described as builds for "testing and evaluation" not consumer ready products.

Beta is risk for the novice user while the advanced plans on disaster recovery if one of the builds go "cccccrashhhhh" for some reason. MS recommends a separate machine even while many will have a separate drive or planned a second primary for 7.

If you already have the 7000 on dvd go ahead and nuke the primary for a clean install. If the 7068 you have sees another problem you simply reinstall the 7000 fresh again or a better source for the 7068 remembering it's only "temporary" installations being seen until the real Windows 7 finds it's way to the retail shelves.

It may be that the DVD you've burnt has been burnt too fast. I've had this issue too many times to count when i've forgotton to burn at a slower speed.

Slower burn speeds greatly decrease the risk of write errors (unseen) with large ISO files which will later cause read errors.

When first testing an image to see it is genuine as well as intact I may slap it on an rewritable disk for a fast look before tossing a few blanks into the recycle bin! Most burning programs will also see a verification option to insure the burn matches the source file(s) depending on the type of burn.

The problem with dvd burning these days is looking at the 18x-20x-22x speed dvd drives available and never opting to use manual options to limit the burn speed. For video work as well as seeing favorable results when going to burn disk images it won't hurt to wait a minute longer.

I haven't been using a disc, I just mounted the iso with poweriso. I'll try burning it to a disc now.

I understand, I would stick with 7000 but there is a particular program that wont work with 7000 but does with 7068. This is a forum post to what I'm trying to get to work... Windower 3.42.2 (RC2) BETA / Windows 7 Compatability - Windower

If you've got a flash drive handy, you can also install from that.

Seven will also expose system instalbilty / unstable overclocks more than any previous version of Windows as you've discovered.

Also make sure you uninstall anti-virus apps and non-windows supplied updates video drivers. I had to uninstall Catalyst Control Center to procede with my upgrade.
