I tried running the setup in compatibility mode, but same thing. I also tried changing the cversion.ini file. Same.

Hope someone can give me some advise. Thanks!!

when you run the upgrade, are you doing it from within the OS you want to upgrade? or did you burn it to a dvd and boot to it?

What exactly did you put in the cversion.ini file? If you did it the right way it should work without any problems.
Maybe post a pic of your cversion.ini so we can see what you have.

I burned it, and also tried from the Computer itself. (Extracted to the harddrive.) Here is a pic of the file,

O, I didn't boot from the dvd I burned. Just ran the setup.

I used my cversion.ini from the 7100 RC and it looks like this.

Don`t have to do all this stuff.
Just change the compatibility of the two setup.exe file one is located in the DVD another in the DVD\sources to vista sp2 and you are good to go.

I don't know if it will make a difference but I also told it not check for updates before I installed.
