Windows 7 Migration Woes

Some Vista users thought they died and went to heaven when Windows 7 shipped. But for some, the gates weren't so pearly, as the Win 7 upgrade was either difficult or impossible. In a handful of cases, the install goes great 62 percent of the way...and then stops. Ouch. Others get caught in an endless reboot cycle (which I used to call Windows 3.0).

Those that encounter the partial install can use a workaround, as described in this Microsoft document.

How has your Windows 7 install/migration gone, and how exactly did you do it? Answers welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
