    actually norm nothing has happend apart from the nagging...
    you can still create and save documents...
    and you can install programs
    although full screen programs are impossible due to the nagging
    i believe you cannot use aero and the goodies that you get...lol
    So presumably this is the "Time-Bomb" referred to?? It's nice to know there's no Black screen etc.

    yes you can change any settings you like...
    as i did not activate that version of 7
    i got the nagging please activate windows...
    and at random time please activate windows yada yada...
    at random restarts there is a black screen background...
    but easily changeable in the control panel...

    i will post pics with the happening....
    maybe a vid if i have the time....

    Well shit...I go through the entire installation of 7 and when it gets to the last step it has an "Unexpected Error" and wont let me complete the installation. Has anyone else had this problem?

    can you give a better explanation...
    as what happens??
    if any error codes come up..
    if you closed all antivirus and any protection before tried it...

    this is an upgrade correct??

    Yes I am trying to upgrade and I also tried once more with the same results....

    I get to the final step "Completing Upgrade" at 31% then it gives me this message....

    "Windows installation encountered an error and cannot continue. Your computer will restart and your previous version of windows will be restored."

    So now I am stumped....has anyone else got this message?

    I dont believe I have any encrypted files, and I have a total of 27.5 GB of free space, which should be plenty enough. I disabled my anti virus the second attempt to see if that made a difference but that did not seem to make any difference at all.
