#1
First, let me say that I used the Upgrade Advisor and got rid of everything I
was told needed to go before Rc1 was attempted. I then tried to do the RC1
upgrade on my XPsp2 box and it froze up. I left it at about 3/4 done on the
progress bar for over 36 hours. I finally decided to restart the computer.
Upon reboot the setup told me it had failed and was going to roll back to xp.
That also failed and now I get a command box. I have tried all the boot
options (previous windows verstion - nothing ever happened... rollback -
nothing, and recovered vista - nothing)

I know that my XP and docs were backed up during the upgrade process. At
this point I just want my computer back...

Does anyone know the steps to make that happen?
