Windows 7: How to UPGRADE to Win7 7260 RTM - NO Fresh Install !!!

Win7 RC
 
 

No, the power was not interrupted. This was on a laptop whose battery was continuously being charged. Haven't tried running setup.exe again because it is so time-consuming. I may just change course and upgrade the Vista I have on another partition.

Addendum: Just tried upgrading a Vista SP2 which also failed, then tried a clean install, but still got the same error, so something else is wrong, it's not the upgrade method.

As I've posted before, in most cases there are reasons that MS disables the upgrade process between some builds, usually because kernel or system files updates can't be applied thru the upgrade process.

Upgrade at your own risk if you bypass this, you may not be getting the very things the newly compiled builds were made for....
