The upgrade is hosed. The best way to save the configuration (if you can), and redo the flash from scratch.

It would be nice to know what version of 8.0 you upgraded from though so we could fix the migration scripts (if they're broken).

It would be nice if you could get your upgrade to work, but just so you don't get the wrong expectations, the NTFS import still doesn't work yet. There's another thread around here about it and I have a ticket open for it also. If you do get your upgrade to work, take a look at the 'Unofficial FAQ' in my signature. There's a question in there about mounting NTFS from the command line that should work and let you copy your stuff.

EDIT: Here's the link to the other thread about importing NTFS.

gcooper....thanks for your respond, and since RC2 not resolving NTFS import, I will wait for next final version. I had spent many hours trying to upgrade and lost my important data on one of my usb becuz of this, so i'm good for now.... concentrate on one thing and forget about other things...

protosd...thnx for your info...
