    Actually, I had this problem with 7000 and 7022 as well.
    • Insert DVD
    • Launch setup.exe from within Win7 7048
    • Click "Install Now"
    Almost immediately I get:
    "Windows Setup cannot find a location to store temporary installation files. To install Windows, make sure that a partition on your boot disk has at least 688 megabytes (MB) of free space.

    Error code: 0x80070490"

    I've done a full day of searching for more info online and really haven't found anything that relates to Win7. I have done the following:
    Verify available space on C: (which is over 400GB free)
    Checked permissions and ownership on temp folders (although it was never changed from the initial install)
    Launch setup.exe as Administrator

    The install will work if I boot from DVD but will not perform an upgrade, of course. However, a full install is possible to the same or secondary hard drive.

    Any ideas are welcome.
