Windows 7 Windows 7 RC Install

This was a real Mother......! But I finally got it done, with all my files and applications re-installed.
There are limits to what can be restored from backup, and I had do do a lot of it manually.
I have to say, that my sanity was seriously challenged during my repeated attempts - at least four - to get everything to work.
At one point, one of my application discs kept freezing during install. I used a German metal polishing paste called "Wenol" on the surface of the CD, and tried again. It worked! Apparently, the seemingly small scratches/blemishes on the disc were causing data errors.

Good luck to all!
