Vista fustration
I've been trying to upgrade to Vista Home Premium from windows XP media
center 2005 update rollup-2 when I try to upgrade or clean install I get an
error message that states that the computer cannot do anything with the boot
configuration, then cancels the installation. I have an HP a1243w, with an
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 +3200 1.79 GHZ processor running 1.43 gigs of RAM and I
have 32.5 Gigs of Free space on my STA hard drive.

Hi,

Disable any boot time protection in the system BIOS, and uninstall any
active antivirus software in the existing system (note that I said
uninstall, not just disable). You can install a Vista compatible version
after the upgrade completes.
