I am doing the same thing but get message "you can't save here. Please choose another location. I'm trying to do it while image is mounted. Do I need to copy the whole image to a storage area.

Extract it to your a folder on your desktop will do use winrar or I used Magic iso to extract it then just run setup from there it worked for me

7600x64 RTM

Does upgrade install save your monitor and sound settings? I had to install new drivers for my vga and sound cards and reconfigure after upgrading from vista x64 to 7100x64. Don't feel like going through that hassle again upgrading to 7264.

Hi spliff,

It depends on the version of the currently installed drivers vs the version being installed. If the drivers already installed are newer then Windows 7 will not replace them as it has no need to 'dowgrade' drivers. If the drivers are older than that of the install, then they will be replaced & you will have to re-download & install whatever drivers you are currently using.

Hope this helps
