XP Pro to Vista RC1 Upgrade. How long does it take? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded the latest available RC1 to evaluate the product and ran the update procedure for an existing XPP/SP2 installation with Office 2003 Professional. After an hour it got to the point of rebooting my system, an Hour Glass appears and it says Upgrading Windows...

    It's been like that for the past 3 or 4 hours, nothing else appears to be happening. Occasionally I hear disk activity but that's about it.

    Intel Motherboard, Pentium 2.0 and 512mb PC800 Rambus, ATI 9200 w/256mb and a soundblaster card. Upgrade advisor stated that I was ready for Vista Business.

    Computer is set up as a Small Business Server 2003 Std. Client.

    Any advice is welcome. Thanks.
