64bit to 64bit.
It stops the setup in the 5th and last phase "Transfering files, settings and programs" but I don't know which one of them causes the problem

Is there an option to see/create a log file of the (successful/unsuccessful)upgrade/installation after he rollsback to the previous windows 7 version ???

BTW what will happen if I'll delete the 200MB SYSTEM partition ? my OS will still boot ? maybe it's her causing the problems ?

Another thing , is there an option to upgrade an OEM version with a Retail one (x64->x64 , x32->x32) ?
In OEM I mean Win7 that comes installed with a brand (HP,Dell,Asus etc...) PC/Laptop and in retail I mean a DVD that you purchase. I mean there is the SLIC problem in brand computers isn't it ?
