Re: Vista UPGRADE install from dos.
No, those files will not create a bootable DVD, even if they did, the
upgrade MUST be installed from within an activated XP installation.

Re: Vista UPGRADE install from dos.
probably should ask Circuit City what to do with those files.

Re: Vista UPGRADE install from dos.
Maybe this would help. Did you burn a DVD with the files?

Maybe this will help also, if you haven't found it.
