    Default Win7 wierdness

    I am installing a retail ultimate version of win7 over the evaluation version. It gets to the 'expanding files' part, reboots and then I get this [ attached] cmd win and thats as far as I can go.
    Is this normal and how do I continue the install or should I format the whole drive and start with a clean one ?
    TIA.

    Windows 7 RC expiration
    Effective June 1, 2010, Windows 7 RC will expire.

    To continue using your computer, you should prepare to install the retail release version of Windows 7 or install an earlier version of Windows before the June 1, 2010 expiration date. You will be unable to upgrade from Windows 7 RC to the retail release version of Windows 7. However, you can back up or transfer your data to your next or previous operating system.
    From here.

    It is not really possible to upgrade from Win7 Release Candidate (or Beta) to retail version, save your data and wipe the drive and do a clean install (you could try the method in post#3)
