    Default "windows could not configure one or more system components"- windows 8 installation

    I would like install 8 release preview over my windows 7. When I installed it, I got an error message at the final stage of the installation, saying:

    "windows could not configure one or more system components"

    After it the system nornally restores to the previuos windows 7 state.

    Whats wrong with it?

    First, do not replace your licensed OS (Win 7) with a beta OS. Set up a dual boot or obtain a second HD to use to test Win 8 RP.

    Next when you do install Win 8 use the Custom Install option from the DVD install.

    Welcome to the forum, Curtis.

    Its possible that the installation source is corrupt or defective. Try obtaining a new copy from Microsoft.
