    Hi guys
    I tried making a Bootable DVD from the 7048 build and then do a Clean install -- this fails with "A citical file couldn't be loaded" -- I KNOW my DVD is genuine so I assume that it's probably something with the way I was trying to create the BOOT record.

    I stripped the boot record off a VISTA disk (probably an error).

    However I just installed build 7022 on the desktop (64 bit version) as a CLEAN install --- didn't install anything else and then did an immediate upgrade to build 7048 . This is almost as good as a clean install .

    This worked fine.

    Still can't get the Windows Experience to work however.

    Cheers

    Update -- My DVD was faulty
    Create the Boot rec from the X-64 build 7022 version and then use Ultraiso to create your bootable build -7048 DVD

    works fine (Boot rec from build 7000 probably would work as well)

    Cheers

    boot record from 7000 works fine.
    I used it on my thumbdrive to do my install, clocked it as 16 mins, 32 sec. :)

    Where the hell do you find the option to upgrade your build?

    You boot off the new build's DVD, or run the new build's setup, then it'll ask you "Upgrade" or "Custom", you choose Upgrade. lol
