Windows Installation was unsuccessful Message

Having gone through the process four times (2 x upgrade and 2 x clean install) of the OEM Ulimate Disk, the message "the upgrade (or install) was unsuccessful and your original windows is being reinstalled". Upgrade advisor tells me that my system is compatable - any similar problems that others have resolved?
