I am a Staples associate and I work on computers for Staples EasyTech service. I had a customer bring in his Gateway laptop to have us install Windows Vista Home Premium upgrade from his XP home machine and it consistently creates the same error message. I had also tried the above steps previously without reading this article and it didn't work. Running the customer's recovery disk from Gateway also creates an error and I can't even install XP home at this point.
