Cannot Complete Upgrade - Installation Just Stops

Cannot complete upgrade from win vista home premium 64 to win 7 home premium 64 using student offer, installation just stops at transferring files, settings and programs with no hd activity. I have tried upgrading my pc from vista home premium 64 to windows 7 home premium 64 four separate times, using microsoft's academic upgrade offer.

I use the upgrade option in installation, have tried both "online get latest installations updates" and "do not get latest install updates" and my upgrade goes fine all the way to the end when it should be moving my files, settings, and programs over to win 7  from vista, this is after win 7 has been installed at this point everything just stops, no hd activity, computer is not locked up though, caps lock still works, can move mouse, can even hit the x button in the installation window and get the message "installation cannot be canceled now. Etc. ", But the computer is not doing anything because no hd activity, i even left it on for 8 hours and no movement what so ever once it gets to this point.

I ran microsoft windows upgrade advisor the downloadable one and the one win 7 installation runs, and according to it everything should upgrade fine. I know this is extremely frustrating, i updated my drivers and everything yet it still get stuck at the end. I think doing a custom install would work, but i did not want to have to re-install everything, if i would have wanted to do a clean install, i would have purchased win 7 professional for the same price as home premium, since it is the version i preferred, but just to lazy to re-install everything on my pc.

The pc i am trying to install it on is a new system, just built in march of this year, core i7 920 system, and i even took it back down to stock clock in the bios, just in case that was causing problems. Anyone have any ideas, besides doing a custom install?

Error - Access Denied - Driver Installation Stops

Hp all in one printer driver installation fails, on a clean installed windows 7 (32 bit), manual driver installation stops with "access denied" error message. I have a clean installed windows 7 32 bit. (Not upgraded from vista).

Firstly, hp all in one device photosmart c4280 has been installed automatically and worked fine. After several weeks, it's printing function disappaerad and an error message, saying the driver is missing appeared. Now i can manually scan from windows scan, but whatever i have done, i can not let windows 7 to install the appropriate driver for my printer.

I have used the latest driver software from hp; deleted the printer from devices and restarted and reinstalled. But every time it installs all hp devices but fails for hpphotosmart c4200 series. My user account has admin previleges, already tried with the local admin user, or run the hp driver software in admin mode by right clicking.

Lastly, whenever i try to install the printer driver at print management iu, it starts then halts with an error message "access denied". Printer works fine with another vista machine in my house. So no problem for the printer. I also tried to use the following article, which is actually for the machines which has been upgraded from vista, but it does not work as well.

I doubt, an update from windows update caused this as referenced in the following article for vista upgraded machines. Kb975891 hp multifunction printers and hp full feature software or hp basic driver solutions do not work as expected after a computer upgrades from windows vista to windows 7. Would you be so kind to help me? On the internet i have found hundreds of similar problems with windows 7 and hp printers but couldn't locate any solution yet.

Upgrade Installation Monitor Goes Out Of Range

Monitor goes "out of range" before windows 7 upgrade installation completes. Installation fails, or just stalls at that point. Help this is frustrating. There is no reason why you would think my computer would have a problem with this upgrade install. I had it custom built just this summer. Here are my components so you know what i have.

Intel core i7 920 64bit processor
Intel dx58s0 motherboard
3gb ddr3 ram
Xfx ati radeon hd 4870 1 gb ddr5
Running 64 bit vista business

I am a student so i figured i would download the windows 7 pro (x64) file from the msdn software site and take a stab at the upgrade. This allows you to download a valid iso image of the full version. I would then launch the .exe from a virtual drive. Starts just fine.

The compatibility part of the install wizard asked me to unistall itunes, the ati catalyst control center, the ati catalyst install manager, and microsoft live onecare. I completed these tasks and relaunched the install.

At first i was experiencing the install lag after the first reboot during the expanding windows files section, but it eventually completed. After the next reboot, the install wizard would get to the final transferring files section, appear to finish, and then my monitor is sent "out of range". Nothing happens after this point, i have waited at least 20 minutes during one attempt. It could be wanting me to continue and i just can't see it. I am not able to do anything else and i am forced to do a hard shut down, where on the reboot, the installation of windows 7 fails and rolls back to vista, which works just fine (a lone bright spot in this).

I have researched this endlessly for hours with no acceptable solution. I'm sure i can't be the only one to have had this issue. I have tried disabling my video card before the istall, made sure i had the latest drivers before the install. I've even tried to make sure my monitor is compliant. The w7 upgrade advisor also checked out perfectly fine.

This is not a problem that can be solved by rebooting in safe mode since the install never finishes, so please don't post that solution. I am also not having the 62% stall issue, or the constant reboot issue after it rolls back. This seems like a driver thing, or maybe an hdmi thing.

Any help would be appreciated. Also i would rather stay with vista than waste another day either attempting this upgrade without a solution explanation, or doing a complete install and reloading all of my files and apps. Maybe this fix hasn't come along yet, or i missed something. It just seems that my setup should have made for an easy upgrade, unlike those trying to install w7 on outdated hardware.

Custom Installation Vs Upgrade Install

I'm planning on upgrading my vista 64 bit to windows 7 using my upgrade discs i got from hp. I'd like to make a clean installation rather than an upgrade install but there is a warning in the manual that if i choose to custom install, i may need to reinstall drivers that are not included in my discs. What does this mean? Does this mean that if i custom install windows 7, i may need to download programs in order to run my mouse, keyboard etc? (Sorry i'm an no computer techie).

Also just in general, is there a big performance difference between custom install and upgrade install?

Will Upgrade Installation Require More Space On Boot Drive ?

I have a very small 32gb boot drive with vista premium installed. Will upgrade installation require more space on the boot drive? The boot drive i have is an 32gb ssd. Since ssds are so expensive i ordered this small one as a boot drive only. So will i need space available on the c drive to upgrade my windows vista premium 64-bit to windows 7 64-bit? I have a secondary hard drive as my f drive. It is 320gb and contains all my programs and games, leaving about 200 gigs left.

If space is indeed required from my c drive, is there an alternative way to upgrade?

Can I Re-use Installation Key To Upgrade From Premium To Professional On New Laptop?

I have purchased four computers, and return four computers because i've been told that the computers i have purchased would run the windows 7 professional in xp mode, and they do not.

I have now done research, and will return and purchase a new laptop which i am certain, according to the specifications, will run windows 7 professional in the xp mode.

My question is can i re-use the installation key to upgrade from windows 7 home premium to windows 7 professional on the new laptop i will be purchasing because i am returning the old one. Purchased the laptop on monday, the software, i purchased from a separate vendor when i purchased the initial laptop.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, but i know the new store will not trade my now invalid key code for the software i installed on the laptop i am returning to them.

Can anyone help me please?

Cannot Locate Driver Files For Ide Controller During Upgrade Installation

I just bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade family pack which entitles me to upgrade all three of my computers, i was told. I have installed it successfully on my gateway desktop with vista home premium without a problem. I anticipate putting it into my l vista laptop.

I've tried to update another xp dell desktop, but keep running into a wall. The installation program asks me to choose a hard disk partition onto which i should install the update. One of the partitions is marked "reserved", so i choose the other. But i can go no further in the installation until i locate driver files for the ide controller.

I've tried finding such files on the windows xp disk, in cwindowssystem32drivers (since that is where device manager says they are) and on the windows 7 disk itself. So far, no matter what driver file location i have tried, i cannot get beyond that point in the installation. I realized that upgrading windows xp to windows 7 would mean losing my data and other installed programs and am willing to do so because i'd like all my computers on the same os and the use of 'homegroup'. Please advise on how to get beyond this point in the installation.

Win 7 Upgrade Version - Installation On Reformatted Hard Drive

Win 7 (upgrade version) reinstallation following hard drive reformat. Need to reinstall xp now in order to activate win 7. I made the mistake of creating primary boot drives too small for an os other than xp or linux. Shortly after install i was unable to update my win 7 because of lack of space on the hard drive (all programs i could change the installation of, were on a separate drive). That meant i had to wipe the hard drive to repartition it.

I was under the impression that i could upgrade to win 7 after a clean install by putting the disk in and having windows check for it, like when i upgraded from me to xp. (Yes, i realize now the error of my ways. ) Now i need to fix it. Add to it, i have 32-bit xp and 64-bit win 7.

Having contacted microsoft tech support, i was told i could simply reinstall my xp and win 7 would recognize that it was there and set up dual boot. That isn't the case, as i suspected. In the reformat, i have lost some data that i thought i had backed up and obviously didn't, which is why i really don't want to reinstall win 7 a third time after reinstalling xp.

I have no windows. Old because of the reformat/repartitioning of my drive. Is there anything else i can do? (I'm so tired of being penalized with drm, activation etc. For purchasing licensed software because of all the pirates out there!).

Upgrade From Vista Home Premium 32-bit Failed Installation

I am attempting to upgrade from windows vista home premium 32-bit to windows 7 home premium 32-bit. I obtained this upgrade from a download, and my installation is failing.

At 21% of the way through the "expanding windows files" process, the installation quits with the following message:

"The upgrade was canceled. Any changes that were made to your computer during the upgrade process will not be saved. " And in a bow below that message: "setup can't continue. Your computer will now restart and your previous version of windows will be restored. "

No reason is given for the cancellation of the upgrade. I have, however, run the windows upgrade advisor, which has shown that my computer is fully compatible. All programs that it advised me to remove have been removed. I've also removed all external devices from my computer during the installation.

I fear i may have a corrupted installation file of some kind but am not sure of anything. I'd appreciate if anyone has any suggestions, or has been in this situation before and or knows what to do.

Upgrade To Professional Through Student Discount Program

I am receiving windows 7 home premium via a free upgrade program. Can i upgrade to professional through the student discount program. As a college student some of the programs i will be using need to be compatible with windows xp, and the domain join is nice feature. None of these things are on the home premium edition. So i was wondering if it was possible to install the windows 7 home premium upgrade, and then use the student discount upgrade program on win741.com to purchase the windows 7 professional, rather than full price through the windows anytime upgrade.

Upgrade Option Program Website Error

I bought a copy of windows vista home premium 64x. When i go to the website and put in my product key it says i do not have a valid copy for update. That is jus tthe thing, i bought vista home premium 64 just to upgrade. I know it is valid because i bought the package from compusa brand new on 10/2/2009. I get validated updates and i have my copy registered. Any tips on how to get the website to accept my valid copy? I used caps and dashes exactly how it looks on my sticker.

I tried three times and then had to wait for two hours to try again. I can not get it to work. I am frustrated because i want my free copy. I paid for it when i bought my specific brand of vista. I bought the operating system "in the box". Please let me know what i should do.

Note; i did not buy the software from a computer manufacturer, i bought the system in the box. I realize this means i have to use the website located at; http://windows.com/upgradeoffer         however, it is not working. It keeps giving me an error screen. Help?

Fallout 3 Stops Working

I installed the patches and such manually (new to games for windows live and fallout 3 on the pc) i have using factory standard components with this 2009/2010 laptop and i have played eve and wow pretty easily (though i uninstalled most of these games because fallout has a special spot on my pc lol) and heard people say if i run eve on max settings i shouldn't have probs with fallout 3. I have windows 7 os. Everytime i hit new game, it goes to the desktop, says it stopped working (mouse disappears) so i have to ctrl+alt+delete to get my mouse back and have to hit close program. I have done everything it told me to do. I have not put mods or anything in, i have made and connected to gfw as well.

Below is a reply to someone telling me to use system requirements lab.com

I did but i find that it does not support or is compatible with what i have, as it says i can't run command & conquer 3 or any of the other games that i do or did run

This is what happened when i read the read-me file and tried to "update" my drivers and such
Ok about half an hour ago, i actually started to read the readme. It said i should update my drivers and such. I searched, went to dell and got a idt sound thing, and another driver thing for my chipset. But when i did the idt thing for my sound it said restart, i restart, and then it says "windows has encountered a problem and has to shut down" it restarted itself as well. It may have been that death screen but i have never experienced it, what did i do wrong? Did i damage my computer? The sound is fine, i don't know what happened, what do i do?

Here is why i can't do system restore:- the point on restore . Um . I have always tried to restore (only had for a month) and it always says i have too much memory, and i unselect all the optional things to do online restore. It seems fine as of now. I'm really only a computer geek at win95, and partial at that so i'm way new at this computer gaming. It's a dell computer, and my specs are in my profile.

What happens:- i said when i hit "new game" and hit "yes" it begins to load, then about 1 or 2 seconds of loading it crashes, saying fallout 3 has stopped working. I have used laptops with a lot of online games, don't know why f3 has given me these problems. I just spent so much on this and now i think i've screwed up my laptop, i don't know if i'm *** or sad right now. I'm not rich for custom, i'm only a senior in grad school.
