Home Premium installation
Installation fails on my PC, even though I have updated drivers and the MS
Compatibility programme doesn't identify any issues? My PC: Advent Intel quad
core 2.66GHz CPU with 2x Radeon X1950 graphics cards and 2Gb ram. I'd
appreciate any help here.

Re: Home Premium installation
Overall, you would be best served to do a clean install rather than an
upgrade.
