Hope this helps,

honestly at this point downloading anything but this RC 7100 is very unwise

There may be some newer test builds before final
I would not use them
There may or may not be a RC 2
But wait for that

Release of final retail is oct 09

There will no RC2. That has been confirmed many times.

Windows 7 Professional x64 RTM
 
 

Nice! And it doesn't expire until June 1, 2010 (although, at the beginning of March 2010, it shuts down every 2 hours...).

Would anyone recommend upgrading from vista over a clean install?
I just installed Vista Biz x64 a few weeks ago and really don't feel like doing a clean install if I don't have to.

I have downloaded the 32 bit version (thanks for the links!) and have burnt it to a DVD.

Everything runs smoothly and the install is looking good, but then I get a message:-

"Windows cannot install required... blah blah...
Error code: 0x80070017"


I have tried to install it three times and each time I'm met with the same error message.

Any ideas?

Did you do a clean install or upgrade from your xp?

I can only imagine how slow the downloads are during the day. Probably send the servers down.

Clean install. I stuck in a new Seagate hard drive (blank) and hit go. It was all going so well and then it stopped
