Thank you for using newsgroup!
Based on my experience, we may encounter this similar issue is because the
Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor tool cannot find out all hardware devices'
drivers that are incompatible with Windows Vista during the process.
Therefore, before upgrade to Windows Vista, please make sure all core
devices (CPU, HDD, motherboard and memory) in your system are compatible
with Windows Vista. You may contact the manufacturer to confirm it.

| You know, let's just face it. This "upgradeability" thing is a farse. At
| given time, hardware and software are MATCHED.
| My retailer said 'don't worry, you can always upgrade the processor.' Or,
| 'it's Vista capable.' (Not knowing the difference between capable,
| and ultimate.) MATCHED is the word.
| Wait until the smooth running Vista machines come out with the RIGHT
| DRIVERS, etc.
| PS: and yes, the advisory tool is a joke
