I don't use Windows as my working platform (I use Mac OS), but I have
Windows in a virtual machine, and my experience has been the same ---
I installed MikTeX without any problem (first, MikTeX 2.5; yesterday,
MikTeX 2.7), but I couldn't get a working installation of TeXLive.
It's been quite easy on Linux and Mac, but not on Windows.

Now ---if you have succeeded installing MikTeX, why do you want to
install TeXLive? For what I see, MikTeX is a very complete
distribution, and, for example, TeXLive 2007 comes with XeTeX 0.996,
