    Sounds like the HDD is failing yes... Check the MD5 hash of the iso and then you will know if its the iso or not, the md5 for x86 build 7000 is: F9DCE6EBD0A63930B44D8AE802B63825

    If you have no way of finding the hash, google hastab.. nice freeware app :)
    yeah i checked mine and it is the same, although if it was the iso that would have been better than HDD failure. i dont think the odds of both my laptop and desktop's HDDs failing at the same time are very good though

    It's clearly a case of MFT corruption that chkdsk has never been able to fix and that only 7 is sensitive to. You created these "corrupt" filesystems when? With what OS? Performing a "quick" format doesn't count as recreating the filesystem either -- all that does is clear a few structures that establish allocation. You'll need to perform a backup of the data on each filesystem and recreate the partition from scratch in 7. Try it with one of your failing volumes as a test and see if it doesn't clear it up!

    these corrupt filesystems only started showing up after i installed 7 and i never use quick format. i just dont understand why this isnt happening to more than 1 other person and by from scratch in 7, you mean to recreate the other partitions besides 7? i thought 7's partition would be the whole problem

    EDIT: on top of that now i went back into XP for the first time in like 4 days and it loads a temporary profile and says something like "could not load local profile" and something about corruption!!

    check here....

    User Profile Error - Logged on with a Temporary Profile - Vista Forums

    i know its vista but it might help....

    now this is making me think mft corruption....

    i suggest you take your drive out and connect it to another machine (one you know is working) and try testdisk

    this problem has not reoccurred for me. i just had it the first day i installed 7, but after rebuilding the partition and reinstalling, all is well. the HDD is less than two months old, and has not been used very hard. i doubt it's failing. i've also heard at least two other stories of people with similar problems that always start when installing 7. cosmic coincidence? perhaps...

    if you dont have very important data dont do the what i said....

    its better (and easier) to start over again (well xp is another story....)

    reformatting your hardrive remakes the mft....

    and should get rid of your problems....

    I'm using the public beta and personally I think Windows 7 is far from stable. I've tried installing it 4 times and tried everything from letting windows 7 create the partition itself, as well as using Acronis disk director. Every time it has corrupted the hard disk. It also seems to conflict with Vista and ends up corrupting that hard drive also. I've been using Windows XP, Windows XP 64 and Vista 64 and had no problems whatsoever with those operating systems, so the problem definitely lies with Windows 7.

    It's definitely not my hard disks as I've just bought a samsung 1tb drive and after just 3 reboots, the hard drive became corrupt after trying to install x-fi drivers. It gave me a similar message to what TDK got, saying the installation files have become corrupt and needs to run chkdsk. I've just reinstalled Vista X64 and again it's corrupted the hard disk I have Vista on, as well as the hard disk that Windows 7 is installed on. I think I'll wait for the final version. The public beta is just too buggy.

    I would be interested in this as to what was the platform? amd/intel? possible nforce? could you also be using a gigabyte MB as well? I have had the same problem pretty much since the install. I thought it was my disk (IDE WD250), but upon booting into XP, i do not have this issue as of now. However in the first few years of XP, i had this same issue. It was due to the IDE drivers for my nforce, in particular the SW IDE.

    On Win 7 upon trying to unarc something or install something from another logical disk, i get corruption. Either on an install or on the unpack. Go into XP like i said, same files, no problem at all. Problem is, apparently the IDE drivers for the nforce4 platform are not working properly. I have had no luck with finding such a driver for win7. The drivers for vista only show a SM bus.... But a sata/ide driver is packaged, just not a selection to install under win7 it seems. Why this is, i have no idea, nor an answer at this time.
