Windows 7: windows 7 installation problems

windows 7 installation problems

i downloaded the windows 7 RC excited to try out the pre release. i burnt the iso onto a writable DVD like all other people who have installed it, then i started setup. i chose to custom install(see attached picture). i then chose to install windows 7 on my second internal hardrive(111GB) and pressed install. it then got to 43% of copying files and came up with an error(see second attached picture). i then have to start over with the setup. it isnt only 43%, it varies, but it has never gotten to fifty percent. one time i wasn't even able to get far enough to choose the partition. anyway,if anyone has any ideas, it would be much appreciated, i am getting very frustrated.

Re-burn at slow speed or extract the iso to where u want to install and run the setup exc. from there. Also, what are u upgrading from? Is this to be a 2nd OS? Dual boot?
