Vista Upgrade HELP !
I am trying to upgrade from XP to Vista Home Premium.

When the option for `upgrade` comes up it says
Upgrade has been disabled.
- Your Windows configuration cannot be upgraded.

I have found a solution on the m/soft site to change any drives from FAT32
to NTFS. I did this only to find my drives were already NTFS , and still
upgrade is disabled.

I have also ran the vista upgrade advisor and it tells me my computer will
run vista home premium.

My computer is a Packard Bell iPower FX7610 with 600gb - [drive (c) 30gb /
drive (d) 521gb].

Please help.

Re: Vista Upgrade HELP !
It appears that you are possibly trying to upgrade XP which is in the C
partition and there is not enough space available in the C partition to do
the upgrade.

Re: Vista Upgrade HELP !
Are you using XP Pro or XP Home? You can't "upgrade" from Pro to Home.

Re: Vista Upgrade HELP !
Are you running the DVD from within Windows or booting from the DVD? You
can only upgrade from within Windows.
