    Finally!! I just got and installed Windows 8 Pro RTM over the release preview 8 I had installed last week over my Windows 7 Ultimate. Thanks you guys for all your suggestions, advice and help. This forum is better than all the Microsoft ones I've been trying to get help from since Jan 20th!

    The problem you reported initially does not match your reported solution.

    Glad you are up and running. And, you are welcome.

    So, what was the key to getting installed? What did you do differently than in earlier attempts?

    I got the RTM version of Windows 8 Pro. Microsoft let me use the product key I got when I bought the Pro upgrade over a month ago. It installed without a hitch the first try.
