    So you tried to do an install of a new OS without backing up all your important files first...tut tut !!

    I have never done an upgrade in such a manor of what you tried.

    What I would do is install a fresh new version of Win 7 onto a totally different HDD.
    Then hook up the original HDD and try to retrieve all your important files, if this update has not over ridden them.
    Or hook up the original HDD to a working PC and save the files.

    Save these files to your chosen media. USB, DVD-r or external HDD caddy ? I don't know what you have.

    Then once your satisfied all your files are safe do a brand new fresh install of Win 7 onto your original HDD, using Daz's loader to activate it.
    A Vista machine will only have SLIC2.0 and Win 7 needs SLIC2.1 in the BIOS to enable making an OEM Image.

    You didn't say what Vista is installed :cool2:. Afaik there's no way to upgrade from Vista HomePremium to Win 7 Ultimate while preserving all settings and programs :g:.

    Huh .... moment ... let's make a step back :D. What did you try so far exactly, this isn't clearly understandable :g:?

    I assumed you either booted from the Win 7 disk or started the Win 7 setup.exe from Vista .... ?

    I am assuming you have a working laptop or other desktop, your posting on here.

    Take the drive out of the broken machine and connect it to a working machine and get all your important files saved.

    Are you able to do this ?

    Does that mean after the failed setup you can't boot back into Vista?

    I would suggest, download a CLEAN UNTOUCHED Windows 7 image from these forums.

    Do not think about one off a torrent site, say a pre-activated one. Stay well clear.

    Make yourself a USB installer.

    Install a fresh brand new Windows 7 from sctratch, deleting all partitions,volumes then making new ones. Formatting and installing...

    Can I add,

    If it were me I would do a test install on a different, spare HDD. Just to make sure all was well.

    If in deed you have spare HDD's.

    If you don't well now is the time where such spare parts would come in handy. Maybe buy ya sen a couple of cheap second hand drives. A 3.5" and a 2.5". It maybe too late for this instance but this sort of thing will pop up again, is does for me.

    Here is Daz's loader

    This will get things all nice post install.

    Good luck

    @slave77 :cheers:
