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.

QC vs Release Deadlines

I experienced a very similar endless reboot issue on 2 of my machines using the Win7 beta and RC. Both PCs were retail (an Acer and a DELL) with relatively common/generic hardware. I would by proxy doubt that Microsoft was ignorant of this issue upon Win7's release even if they claimed so. A slipped release date seems to hurt Microsoft's image (and wallet) more than a slip in quality assurance - as we all have accustomed ourselves to expect.

The problem will be patched sooner or later, and we (most of us) will all wind up upgrading sooner or later. XP won't be around forever... resistance is futile. =)~
