Hello All
Have been trying to upgrade vista to windows 7 but I keep getting the same message.
"Setup can't continue. Restart computer and restart setup. When prompted try getting the latest upgrades". This was done many times and the message that the upgrades were downloaded was seen yet it stop. Help anyone!

If your vista is up to date, maybe you should go in the users accounts, disable uac, and try again. Anyway, i presume that you have the cracked versions of windows, in which case the installer from vista may be damaged or something.

Consider formatting before installing 7.
Also consider NOT installing windows 7, an OS that has not been proven to be stable yet. I only had bad experiences with it. If your computer's confuguration allows you to run vista perfectly, why ruin it?

why would you assume that ,

you must be using the cracked version ,I've been using legit 7 ultimate since early October and am having absolutely no issues with win7

Hi Guys

Thanks for the info. My copy of Vista is genuine and updated to SP2. I tried disabling the UAC but the same thing happened. Any other ideas

There is no difference between a legit windows 7 and cracked windows 7. The installation CD is the same regardless of what you choose to do.

The only change is in applying the crack after the installation is complete.
So if windows 7 was to be unstable it'd be unstable on both legit and cracked copies.

I know this because I've read about it. So don't make false assumptions about things you have no idea about.

Tried bypassing the updates but it still did not work. I was told I may need to update the bios. Any info on this?

I'm not using it, vista works perfectly since december 2008, when i bought this laptop. and it worked just as well on my old desktop (not that old, just sold). i've seen windows 7 crash on 2 out of 3 computers. that doesn't say much, indeed, but i'll wait for the first service pack before installing on my own machine.

when i said windows 7, i meant windows 7 ultimate (32bit version), and vista just the same, ultimate, 32bit.

Similarly, I will wait for the first service pack before I install on my machine, like dadrian said.

We'd need to know the make and model of the computer to know about the BIOS.
Where did you get this info?
