Windows Users remained stymied today by endless reboots after trying to upgrade their PCs to Windows 7, according to messages posted on Microsoft's support forum. An answer has yet to be found for all users, who began reporting the problem last Friday after watching the upgrade stall two-thirds of the way through the process.

Agreed a clean install is always better - but thats my experience not just in Windows, last time I tried to upgrade Ubuntu I was left with an OS that didn't work.

Makes me think it wouldn't be a bad option for the installer to offer to back up your personal data (my docs etc or visible folders in /home) to an external hard drive or make a backup partition then do a clean install and copy it back.
