Seems that a number of individuals have had issues with upgrading legitimate
copies of Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate. Using the upgrade media
provided, the upgrade seems to fail during the last few steps by indicating
rather cryptically that a component could not be configured. There is no
indiation as to which component didn't get configured.
Now, I do not understand why this should happen. I used the upgrade advisor
which indicated to me that the recommended version of Vista was Ultimate and
there were no hardware/software/driver
Why can't I just upgrade then? Why do I have to disable all drivers
for the video, keyboard, and mouse to get a good upgrade? All drivers are
Vista certified - I have no hardware whatsoever that isn't certified with
Vista and am assuming that this certified hardware comes with certified
I have been unsuccessful so far in updating my system. I would really love
to see Microsoft take ownership here and supply us with an upgrade disk that
does what it indicates on the box. I should not have this much difficulty
upgrading my system. After all, Microsoft developed the upgrade system and is
selling it to the general public. Just insert the disk, add the key, and
click install. What could be easier?
Does anyone have any suggestions? I do not really want to go through the
hassle of disabling all drivers - if that is required, then instructions
should have been included with the update disk on how to do this. Will
Microsoft change this and provide a cleaner install DVD. If not, can I get my
money back? Should I upgrade to something else?
