Good Morning everyone,
I was refered by a friend to this website to seek advice and help with my issues
Our company has a few hundred pc's that need to be upgraded to windows 7 from currently Windows Xp Sp3.
We need to perform the upgrade process as there is just too many applications and drivers for the different departments and thier needs
We formulated the plan to upgrade to Vista Buisness --> Windows 7 Pro. (This can be done according to microsoft)
Last week we have been trying to install Vista Buisness (32bit) on these machines but we have encountered an issue where the process stops at 64% on compleating installation, at this time the pc restarts and rolls back to XP. It doesnt necessarily state why the upgrade failed but rather to check with the upgrade advisor(which are not that great btw).
- We know these machines are capable to upgrade to windows 7 as they are windows 7 ready to begin with but were imaged with XP.
After removing applications and drivers one by one which includded some of the core applications we needed and our anti virus program, the upgrade still failed at 64%
- Then on Friday i took a 'STOCK IMAGE' pc out of a box brand new and performed the upgrade and i was able to upgrade it to vista without any problem.
So i am not so what is causing the issue with the other pcs, i suspect it may be with one of the windows updates that were installed on the other machines, if so i need to find out which one and uninstall it.
Has anyone else come to a similar situation that is able to help me out please?
Let me know if you need more details.
