Vista Installation Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried 4 times to intall Vista build 5384.4 as upgrade to Windows XP Professional. On "Gathering Files" it gets to 99% fairly quickly but then appears to stall for over an hour. Immeditaely after getting to 100% an error message come up "An error occurred while preparing Windows Setup to boot into the next stage of Setup". Any ideas of the problem?

  • I'd wipe the drive and start from scratch and see if that works.  I've never been a big fan of upgrading OS's it always seems to cause problems in the long run.
