    Where you upgrading from a clean build of WindowsXP?
    Personally I would only ever clean install, but the option is good if you need it.

    This is the first release it has been active so as testers (and you must be a tester at the moment right?) we have to find these problems and report them back as fast as we can before they go public...

    ...So you need to give us more information.

    Check the advanced tab, anything there?
    Might need to create a partition if one doesn't exist (for some bizarre reason)
