RE: Vista Upgrade is Hanging Up?
Well, in that case the best thing you can do is to restart the computer from
a cold shutdown. Vista may have tried to restart and couldn't for some
reason or you may have attached hardware with drivers that conflict somehow.
At any rate, Vista may continue on with the installation after you restart
from the shutdown. If it doesn't, then I would suggest removing all external
hardware and just go with your monitor, keyboard and mouse to see if you can
get a successfull installation. If you are still able to get into WinXP
though, you may want to uninstall incompatible programs that the Windows
Upgrade Advisor warned you about to minimize problems further. Programs such
as Nero, Security software, etc.
