    Upgrade Error: Could Not Update Boot Configuration

    Upgrading from XP Pro SP2 to Vista Business VLK terminated with the following
    error:

    "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation
    cannot proceed"

    Reviewing the setupact.log reveals the following error (hard to find but
    search is your friend):

    I have checked the registry and PartMgr is the default value as others have
    referenced. Has anyone seen this error or have an idea how to fix it?

    Thanks,

    its a long shot, but do you by chance have boot sector virus protection enabled in the bios.

    Hello Lance,
    What is in the boot.ini file?
    Is the drive NTFS? What permissions are on drive itself? ( right-click on
    the drive check properties, then security tab)

    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

    RE: Upgrade Error: Could Not Update Boot Configuration

    Here's the boot.ini

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP
    Professional"
    /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

    The drive is NTFS, nothing noteworthy in the security permissions, admins
    only lack the special permissions flag, which I assume is normal. Admin
    group, including my account, is listed as owner.

    Fwiw, I tried again last night on the administrator account. Same error. I'd
    be happy to mail you the full log if you think that would help.

    Thanks,

    Lance

    RE: Upgrade Error: Could Not Update Boot Configuration

    I am too upgrading from XPPRO Sp2 to Vista Enterprise. The installer came
    back reported "Windows could not update the computer's Boot Configuration?"
    I do not have the log with me, but I can get it, and upload it if you need it.

    I will check with the BIOS Virus Protection tonight, but I do not think it
    is enabled.

    Anything you can help with would be appericated. I am trying my best not to
    do a full-format and reinstall. I just want to upgrade.

    Vista Upgrade error: could not update boot configurationinstallation will now terminate~

    I have the same problem here upgrading from XP home to Vista Ultimate.

    I have tried twice to run the install but it doesn't get past the expanding files part of the upgrade. It gives me the erorr about not being able to update/modify the boot configuration and will stop the installation process right there.

    I can't find anything anywhere else on the web about this problem. i have searched for more than an hour already. There's got to be something i can do to make it actually finish the installation process.

    any help or feedback on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    This issue may occur if the UpperFilters registry entry has become
    corrupted or is set to a blank value. Certain programs that may be
    installed on the computer may have modified this registry entry.

    This registry entry is located in the following location:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Value name: UpperFilters
    Value type: REG_MULTI_SZ
    Value data: PartMgr (default)

    Back to the top
    RESOLUTION
    Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry
    incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These
    problems might require that you reinstall the operating system.
    Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the
    registry at your own risk.

    To resolve this issue, restore the default value for the UpperFilters
    registry entry, and then restart the computer. To do this, follow these
    steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
    2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    3. In the results pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click
    Modify.
    4. In the Value data box, type PartMgr, and then click OK.
    5. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
    6. Insert the Windows Vista DVD, and then upgrade the computer to
    Windows Vista.
