Upgrade from XP to Vista Ultimate failed
I am trying to upgrade from XP SP3 to vista ultimate 32 bit. I got the
software from my school, and unfortunately they only offer an upgrade
not the full version. I have tried several times and it keeps failing at
the first reboot, after 21% of the way through "expanding files". It
brings up a BSOD that leaves the stop error: Stop 0x0000007B. However I
have followed the steps on the BSOD and have not had anysucess. I ran
virus scanner before disabling, have since completly removed virus
scanner. I had to remove Nero prior to it failing on the first attempt.
I ran CHKDSK /f, which did not show any problems. I have removed all
peripherals, including my soundcard to limit chances, and have tried
upgrading with out going online and getting updates. If i choose to have
it boot into XP, it boots just fine and does not have any issues. I also
ran the windows compatibility check prior to upgrading the first time,
which no issues were found.
