these are the errors it gives me

ERROR: Could not delete existing file "bC:\Users\Greg\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com"
Error 123: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.


any help would be greatly appreciated.


EDIT: if it matters I am using XP Pro 32 bit
Try this:
oscdimg.exe u2 b"C:\Users\Greg\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com" h C:\Users\Greg\Desktop\expandedSetup C:\7.iso

Added quotation marks.

So has anyone actually upgraded from Windows 7 RC 32bit to Windows 7 Home Preimum? If so, how?

This is the error I get:
---------------------------
Windows Setup
---------------------------
This installation disc isn’t compatible with your version of Windows. To upgrade, you need the correct installation disc. For more information, check your computer’s system information. To install a new copy of Windows, restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc, and then select Custom (advanced).
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

I feel like I am in a catch 22. I can't upgrade off my Windows 7, and if I boot installation then I would my product key input wouldn't work. So I have to re-install Vista and then upgrade windows 7.

Im sure the forumn has been littered with these today but I didnt see any helpful ones. I use Vista 32 I bought the W7 64. Digitalriver is the online company I purchased the product from they claimed you would be able to do a clean install loosing all previous information, which Im fine with. However they sent only an exe which a 32 bit system cannot open with out a disk. To make matters worse they did not include an ISO so you could burn it to a Disk. Any solutions as to making an ISO?

I've gotten everything to work and burned the .iso to a dvd. When i boot from the dvd it goes into the Starting Windows thing and loads and all, but when I get to the part with the blue and green background (where you can see your mouse for the first time) nothing ever loads. I can move my mouse around so I know my computer isn't freezing, but no menus or anythign come up.

Does anyone know have any idea what is causing this problem?

This is false. I successfully burned the image, wiped the harddrive, and installed.

Hold on, I don't think that statement is false. Did you boot from disc when the computer started or did you boot in windows?
