Windows 7: Windows 7 RC 32-Bit Install Not restarting

The folder with the files in it is on my desktop. Is this not supported and that is why it can't restart?

First off you can't run the installer from any desktop shortcut to a location on the same partition/drive unless mounted on a virtual hard drive. I think this where you are running into problems to begin with.

If they had been unpacked onto a separate partition they wouldn't clashing with the active Windows already running. Then you would be able to see a custom install. The files are actually located in the desktop folder under your user name in "C:\users\user name that you use\desktop" not on the desktop itself.

Ugh, still the same problem after moving the install files to a separate partition. When it is moving Windows files, it flashes a message that it needs to restart and then fails with a message that it can't boot and that nothing has been changed and to restart the installation. I don't want to do a clean install and have to reinstall all my programs, so I guess I'll stay with the beta. Sigh.

Well... That's why they calll it "beta" to start with! Be prepared to "wipe a drive" at any time to see a clean install of .... whatever comes next! The RCs are worth the effort plus you will be going through this very soon anyways. MS reminder notice on Windows 7 Beta/RC
