Hello there everyone.
I've been working on a system for a little while now, and am ready to upgrade it to Windows 7 (currently running XP Pro SP3, and yes, it is capable of running 7) . Long story short, here are the issues that I am facing:
1. When trying to boot from the disk, the system skips over the DVD drive and goes directly to XP boot (even though in the BIOS, the DVD drive is the first boot option and even does so when I manually select to boot from the disk drive)
2. When trying to run the software from XP, the error message "Windows could not retrieve information about disks on this computer (even after populating the disk through Device Management)
3. This system, and all of my XP install disks, it seems, lack VDS.exe (which has never caused a problem in previous upgrades)
Anyhow, hopefully, there's something relatively simple that I am overlooking, as I've completed this process many a time before without a hitch and am at my wit's end with this system.
Cheers, and thanks in advance,
