Trying to install from a disc image obtained through the MSDNAA (an Ultimate x86 DVD), and the installer adamantly insists I'm running a antiquated OS (it is, in fact, Windows 7 x64). I tried restarting the system and burning a physical disc to no avail. Even ran it in XP compatibility mode, for kicks (no dice). Weird!

Has anyone else seen this before? Or even better, have a solution?

Here's the error I'm getting - searching Google and Bing for the text hasn't turned up anything of worth yet.

Edit Just an update--I reinstalled Windows 7 as well as grabbing Service Pack 1, and I'm now getting a different error when trying to install VS2010 on this clean install. Here's a snippet of the log. As best I can tell, the first error, followed by the long list of things that were not installed, are repeated three times:

Perhaps the disc image was corrupted in transit?
