Windows 7 upgrade setup error: ntdll.dll

Hi All,

I searched the forum and found a lot a references to issues related to the ntdll.dll, but nothing related to running the setup.exe for Windows 7 upgrade (from Vista).

When I run the setup for my upgrade to Windows 7 the setup application crashes early in the process and I get this error:

You may try testing your system files. Open an elevated command prompt and enter sfc /scannow.

If that doesn't work, you may need to boot from the DVD or other installation source, and do a clean install. Be sure to backup your data first. You can use the Easy

Thanks Jonathan, I did perform the suggested sfc /scannow and it did find some issues that it could not fix and it ask me to check the log file for further information. I did that too, but I was not able to understand the file enough for me to take any real action. I think I will need to boot from the CD and do a fresh install, which is always provide the best install anyway.

Thanks for your help.
