Vista 32-bit to 7 64-bit upgrade failure
by CameraSith - 5/23/10 9:59 PM
Hello everyone. Not sure whether this belongs here or in the Vista forum so I am posting it in both. I just decided to upgrade my home built desktop to Windows 7 from Vista. I had gotten an upgrade disk from my school just a little while back and when I tried to install, it froze at 98% on the Expanding Windows Files step. I did a hard restart on my computer and have gotten a plethora of error messages since, including:
Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error Code: 0x80070570
followed by another restart and:
Exception Processing Message 0xc0000102 Parameters
The file or directory
C:Windows/winsxslx36_microsoft-windows-s...gurationengine-umof_3lbf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none.48090613e092C7a4 is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.
I am unable to run Chkdsk because I can not access anything except for the install disk menu, which when tried takes me through all the messages again. I have tried looking up answers but most were unhelpful to say the least.
As of right now, my computer will turn on and either:
a) go to a black screen quickly and tell me to put in my operating system disk and restart (which did not work with Vista or 7 disks) or
b) open the install screen and start the installation, failing and giving me the second set of messages above.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
