This is not an "update" issue. You are performing an OS upgrade, not a
patch/update on a Windows system.
Make sure your Windows Vista system is up to date, clean of
malware/viruses/trojans, defragmented, CHKDSK'd and all Windows 7
incompatible applications have been removed.
I suggest uninstalling any/all third party firewall applications, removing
your antivirus application temporarily (while upgrading and
OFFLINE/physically disconnected), uninstalling any applications you don't
use at all/often and can re-install after the upgrade easily, backup your
personal data (favorites/bookmarks, emails, contacts, pictures, music,
dcuments, etc) and perform a CHKDSK followed by a defragmentation after a
good antimalware scan or two.
Then try your upgrade.
