Windows 7: Build 7077 upgrade freeze

Build 7077 upgrade freeze

When upgrading from 7048 to 7077 the installer freezes on the last step (copying files and settings) at 35% every time I've tried it. It suggested removing ATI Catalyst Install Manager and Control Panel, which I did, but it still hangs (although this time at 47%). I have tried several different configurations (with/without CCC and Install Manager, do/don't go online for updates, etc). Every time I have to force restart the computer and it will begin to restore the previous version.

My system specs are as follows:
AMD Phenom X4 9850
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD4830
Kingston HyperX 2x2GB Dual channel RAM
MSI K9A2-VM Motherboard
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB + Seagate Barracuda 640GB (installing onto the Seagate)
ASUS DVD drive

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

What speed did you burn the DVD at? Because the Install.wmi file is rather large, a fast burn speed may produce read errors that can only be notice upon usage. I suggest 2/4x speed to greatly reduce the risk of write errors.

Burned it at 4X, lowest speed possible with Toast 10 Titanium (on my mac, since my Windows machine can't burn disks). Verified it and everything seems OK... I'll try again, though. Thanks for the suggestion

Looks like I burned using the wrong settings (Mac disk instead of generic disk). Everything works fine now.

Build 7077 - Should I download it?
I only recently downloaded, and installed Build 7068. I have very limited download and upload speeds and my bandwidth is limited. Is there anything that is really worth it so much that I should download 7077 (besides that it is an RC build)?
