Hello WerD,

Did you use any type of hack to remove the watermark on the desktop? These are bad about causing issues like this one.

when I first installed RC1 I ran a watermark removal and it caused that issue. I had to do a clean install, you can no longer upgrade once you start getting that message.

Many times if you check the program that removed the watermark, it will also have ADD BACK feature.
If not - you might have to REPAIR your install.

Kinda ran into the same thing last night after doing a fresh install of Windows 7. I changed to a different motherboard, I just re-installed Windows 7 to fix it. Had no option to re-activate Windows 7 on the install that had problems.
