Hey guys, trying to install my free Windows 7 Upgrade on a Toshiba laptop I bought about a month ago. I got all the way to the "install required components" part, and it installed all except the "Cyberlink PowerCinema for Toshiba Patch". Beside this, it says "failed", and I can't do anything or advance through the install. Anyone know where I go from here to get the update installed?

This a Cyberlink problem, however I have found some solutions on the Toshiba forum that some have had luck with. You will need to read through them.

The one from BryKey seems relavent.
Hope this helps.

Strange...never had that issue when I did an upgrade to the RC from Vista. Never the less, yes, check out that link and attempt to preload the patch before the install. Either that or just do a fresh install and download the required stuff from Toshiba after the fact.

One other question, for now- how do I stop Windows 7 from restarting automatically when I do updates? I'd like it to at least ask, so I have time to close out programs and such first.

Thanks again, I appreciate it. One last question that may be more opinion- I play a lot of online games, and every time i tell someone online that I switched to Windows 7 and like it, they start declaring me a "noob" and all that stuff. I could really care less what anyone says, but what is the reason for the hate by some of Windows 7? Is it just OS fanboy-ism from XP users or what?
