Do you have SP1?

Then use the latest SP1 installer available here: Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life
Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool

You do not need to uninstall SP1, only use the latest official Win7 installer with SP1 which I've linked you.

Can you translate the other issues Upgrade Advisor found?
