I do know the Windows 7 beta release has started shutting down after 2 hours. This may be the culprit. Also, from what I understand, you will not be able to apply the RC to the beta; you must do a fresh install. There may be some hacks to overcome this, but I am not sure, and posting them here would be against the EE TOS. Good luck!

I booted the PC with windows 7 RC and tried to install as fresh and it satys at "starting wndows" after loading the files.
i downloaded again and it is doing same.
