Vista to Windows 7 upgrade install failed
  

I am currently using Vista SP2 32 bits. I bought Windows 7 family edition. I wanted to make update from vista to 7. The report/ratio of the adviser was good, during upgrade install everything was fine till 63% and then installation started again and i got the error message saying “transfer of the files, “the upgrade towards Windows 7 failed, restoration of Windows Vista .....” Have any idea, what wrong i did here?

Why you performing upgrade install? you can perform a clean install and applications that you are using in vista will be run without any issue in compatibility mode of windows 7.

You saying that the report/ratio of the adviser was good. You talking about which adviser? Use this : Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor or is it the adviser integrated into the DVD of 7? From where you bought this installation cd?

Have a look at this guide for proper details about upgrading to windows 7 : Easily upgrade your PC to Windows 7

  • Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
  • On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.
  • Under System variables, click New.
  • Type MIG_UPGRADE_IGNORE_PLUGINS in the Variable name field.
  • Type IphlpsvcMigPlugin.dll in the Variable value field.
  • Click OK three times to close the dialog boxes.
  • Start the upgrade installation again.
