    I found a possible bug in the Windows 7 install. It does not work if the partition you are installing to is 2 TB. You have to make sure the size is 2 TB minus about 4 Gigs. I made my partition 2 TB - 7 gigs.

    I found this when was running into problems installing on my Nvidia raid 0 setup. I kept getting to the reboot before the install will fail, telling me a file could not be found or was corrupt. I decided to run the vista 64 backup and restoring the backup without turning on the raid, when the vista backup software told me the partition could not be backed up due to its size.

    I fought with choosing between an upgrade of fresh install, and I wanted to upgrade. To many programs and settings that I would have to reproduce, so upgrade it was and upgrade I did.

    I hope this helps someone else out there having the same issues I did.
