Upgrade XP to Ultimate fails in Expanding Files
I just tried to upgrade an XP installation to Ultimate and encountered an
error in the Expanding Files phase. (Also when it went into rollback mode,
that also failed and I ended up deleting the installer's temp files and
fixing the MBR by hand).

My system is an ASUS A8V mobo with AMD dual core CPU and VIA SATA RAID. I
suspect the problem could be linked to the RAID: I am running Setup from the
XP installation, so I suppose that Setup takes over the existing RAID driver
that it finds in the XP system folder.

Also I wonder if Gathering Files and Expanding Files are processing files in
My Documents? Because I have a large amount of media files and programming
source files and Gathering Files took about one hour of heavy disk activity.
(Indeed I wonder if it could just have overheated the drives?)

Resolved.

Installing newer RAID drivers in the XP instance before upgrading was
sufficient to fix the issue...
