Any upgrade to Vista from Win2K requires a clean installation. Part of
your problem stems from the fact that Wi2K Professional to a Vista Home
edition isn't a qualifying upgrade path. Win2K qualifies for the use of
Vista Business or Ultimate Upgrades, but you'd need to use a full
version of Vista Home Premium.
Upgrade Paths from Previous Versions
"If you are currently using Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP
Professional x64, you are eligible for an upgrade copy to a
*corresponding or better* edition of Windows Vista, but a clean install
is required." (Emphasis mine.)
