    Any solutions for Windows 7 installation when it hangs at the 62% level of transferring files, settings and programs? This install has stopped responding at 386478 of 511332 files transferred. the only option, and it is a bad option, is to force power off to the computer. Does anyone have a way to avoid this potential shut down option?

    A "clean" install is the correct route to take rather than an upgrade.
