Completing upgrade >48 hrs!!
Hi everyone,

Really stumped here - I'm upgrading from XP to Vista Ultimate and the final
step of the process is running INCREDIBLY slow. I've let it run for TWO DAYS
now and it's only at 57%!! The process isn't hanging and I can see the 3 dots
cycling (there is some intermittent hard drive activity). But is there
anything I can do to speed this up or will I just have to sit this one out...

The upgrade advisor needed Nero removed before the install, which I did.
And it also suggested I have the driver handy for my Linksys wireless PCI
card (WMP11 v2.7).

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dylan

My system specs:
Intel Core Duo 6600, Asus P5B Deluxe, 2GB Corsair Twin 2X RAM, WD 150 GB HD
(about 50 GB used), Creative XFi Platinum, Ati X1900.

Got home to a non-responsive black screen and had to do a hard reboot. After
the restart, setup started again and is now at 64%...this is ridiculous

RE: Completing upgrade >48 hrs!!
Guys, I am having a similar problem but not yet at 48 hrs ! I am only at
around 3 hrs and 73%. I believe it's a system configuration problem. My
machine is config/setup like this : AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200 on a MSI K9NU Neo-V
motherboard, with 1GB DDR2-667 Mhz in Dual Channel mode, with a MSI NX7600GS
TD256 VGA card, and a 200 GB 7200 Rpm Maxtor HD. Vista is doing a clean
install off it's own DVD from the LG DVD-Ram 16x drive. There is a known bug
with Vista with a SATA2 config in some BIOS, but this machine does not have
any SATA drives.
I tested this machine with a clean install of XP 64-bit and it completed
under 25 min. What could this be ?

Ok the problem is DONT upgrade. IT causes so many dang problems. I even talk
to a someone at the University and they say do a CLEAN install. Clean
install is where u delete everything from the hard drive and then format it
and put the operating system on (in this case Vista)
