    I have a Dell inspirion 1545 laptop that I want to do an upgrade in place. When I try to run the upgrade it keeps failing saying there is not enough space on D: drive which is my factory restore partition. I can't find a way to make it upgrade my C: partition which is what it should be doing.

    I've tried from in vista and it didn't work, there is no upgrade when you boot from the dvd.

    I've tried with my original W7 disk and my SP1 slipstreamed disk. It keeps complaining about not enough disk space on drive D: which is my factory restore partition. My vista partition is C: which is where it should be installing but I never get a chance to pick anything. There is plenty of free space on my C: drive.

    Got it going now, I pulled some files off that partition and it moved on so hopefully it will all work out.
