RE: Upgraded to Premium, then Ultimate- now want to reformat
I bought a computer 5 months ago with home premium and finally decided to
upgrade. but after 10 times trying to install with the same message"
windows couldn't configure one or more of the components..." I tried all i
could I had three check marks on the upgrade advisor. I finally called tech
disable all components.
uninstall virus program.
unplug everything except internet, keyboard, mouse. and once the
installation is started unplug the internet.
I don't remember how but needed to do a clean boot without the components
run license put in anytime cd when asked not before. do upgrade.
and no updating. (internet cable unplugged).
that is what i remember but remember to plug in the correct internet cable
after installation and do an update when windows is fully installed.
reinstall the virus program.
