I've tried about five times to install 7, and it resets in the final step every time around 62/63% and then reverts back to vista. I've looked into the 62% bug, but I dont see anything in the log to indicate this. I have deleted all the programs it recommends, minus symantec endpoint protection, as I have no way to get the software back if i delete it. Is my only real option installing windows 7 as a clean install rather than an upgrade? If so, is there any special way to migrate all of my files from my external hard drive to the fresh OS after installation? Thanks.
