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.

I actually had this problem when doing a clean install of the RC. I don't know exactly what the details are of the problem users are having with the release version, but mine happened after Win7 was installed, then it rebooted, and was trying to configure everything. I don't remember what it said (I've slept since then), but something along the lines of it couldn't continue, and then the only option I had was to reboot. This cycle continued until I decided to punt and try again.

I then formatted the hard drive and started over again, and everything went smoothly the second time. I'm still not sure what happened.

That happened to me too, and I came to the conclusion that it was a bad DVD-R. I made three attempts with my first disc, all of which failed at some critical point in the install process. I reburned with a different brand (TDK if I remember correctly) at the lowest supported speed and so far two installs have gone perfect.
