    Thank you for the post.

    Error message when you try to upgrade an earlier version of Windows to Windows Vista: "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration"



    If the issue persists, please format the drive and install Windows Vista.


    Note: Before formatting the drive, please back up your important files.


    Hope it helps.
