Windows 7 upgrade, part 3
As I proceeded in the process of upgrading my MS Vista to MS 7, the upgrade disk said it would copy nearly 4 GB of data to my system. After having copied more than 2.3 GB of the data an error message popped up and said something to the effect that the program (meaning the upgrade program) has caused an error and that windows needed to close it. What?
so I pulled the disk out, rebooted and tried again. It took about 10 minutes to get through the compatibility report, copy over the 2.3GB of data, and throw an error again. The same error. I tried it once more.
Maybe it is one of the programs I have installed on the laptop. I compiled a list of programs I have installed. I can not see why one of them would cause the failure but here is the list (in no particular order):
- Open Office
- Blackberry desktop
- various HP software (the HP compatibility disk checked these without raising any flags).
I will continue this entry later.
