Thanks... I'm not concerned too much about repairing the windows
install. I just want to know if anyone has ever seen this, since I'll be
doing dozens of installs this weekend, and I'd like to be able head off
any trouble.

If this is completely unheard of, then I'll assume it was user error,
since I wasn't sitting with the student during the install, and I didn't
check up on all the steps he took.
