    Problem updating from W7 Ultimate to W8


    Hello fellows,

    I've downloaded Win 8 Pro x64 through DreamSpark (MSDNAA), but I am currently unable to install it. I'm receiving the simple message "Windows 8 installation has failed".

    Attached is the setuperr.log and the setupact.log.

    From what I've understand, it seems there is a problem when creating a restoration point or something.

    I've already tried to go to My Computer > Properties > Advanced Settings > Manage User Profiles and delete all that stuff. I've also tried using chkdsk /r /f to see if there is any error.

    This error pops up always when at 90% of the install.

    Any light? I'm currently using Win 7 Ultimate x64. I did the updates the installer requested.

    Regards,
    Linker.
