Windows 7: In-place upgrade windows 7 64 bit ultimate sp1

In-place upgrade windows 7 64 bit ultimate sp1

From windows 7 64 bit ultimate sp1 to windows 7 64 bit ultimate sp1

I do have to note I accidently deleted a partition with 100 games some weeks ago which caused some not clean leftovers in registry, but they are only games, not a single system/ application. So I don't think this is a cause for upgrade to fail.

The point of this inplace upgrade repair is to fix all the security/ settings / rights to default.

Since I have security issues, acces denied etc. and I had tried to fix them with all sorts of commands, Icalcs, subinacl etc. (for full details on security issue view my topic created herehttp://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=351576&page=2)
It said it had trouble with following devices when checking on compatibility.

AWBN4A-HW IDE controller (yellow exclaimation mark)
Alcohol 120%
Daemon tools
Dungeon siege legends of Aranna

But I don't even have any IDE devices. Only Sata.

So I uninstalled the IDE controller and other programs and tried setup again it went through.

I have also run windows 7 upgrade assistant and gave no trouble other then some videogames that were not recognised or might not work (i have 200 of em installed)
After the upgrade it rebooted and it said it had failed and was reverting back to old..

This is the setuplog I took from the upgrade folders:
setupact.rar (1,22 MB) - uploaded.to

Seems to be stopped @ 63%

Could someone tell me why my upgrade is failing?

I just read about Windows Easy Transfer but I only found a vista/ xp download.. could this combined with a clean install be my answer? I want to maintain functionality over ALL my games, and if possible programs too.

From your description it sounds like you are overdue for a clean reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

Clean install IS NO OPTION NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER

LoL.
No offense but first thing ppl suggest is always re-install bla bla bla bla
I have 200 pc games installed! and I accidendtly removed 100 games last few weeks by formatting a drive, but now I have them re-installed again after weeks work. I WILL NOT RE-INSTALL and lose my games.

I want a SOLUTION Which is I know is NOT impossible, you just need to know the know how and it may be hard.
The OS btw isn't old at all, just messed up rights.

I need some of these options:
1. Explain to me why the upgrade isn't working.
2. A way to clean install while retaining all my games.
3. Fixing my security rights once and for all.

If you're satisfied with an inferior install and not willing to do the clean reinstall one time (then capture it with imaging so you never have to do another) Try running the Repair Install (upgrade over itself) with a clean boot.

To get a clean boot, enter msconfig>Startup and uncheck everything. After reboots, make sure nothing has written itself back in or set it to not update or run at startup in its program Preferences.

Once Startup is cleared, enter msconfig>Services and select "Hide all MS services," uncheck everything remaining, after reboots make sure this remains the case or adjust program preferences or uninstall program.a

Now try the Repair Install. If this fails, then the next step is searching for the panther log to see what was last listing stalling the upgrade.

Referencing your other questions: some games will run from their Program folder .exe file without having to be reinstalled; and you can try creating a new Administrative-level User account to see if it resolves security and permissioning issues and if so eventually delete the faulty account. This is normally best resolved by the clean reinstall, however - setting up the Admin-level User account during install.

The point is the games, I don't want to re-install those games EVER (or as good as ever) That's why im not up for clean install.

So you're telling me to shutdown all services in msconfig except microsoft? and then run upgrade - in place from dvd from windows?

I will try that. Right now im restoring image to the computer again.

Yes some games will run on the fly without being re-installed; but a good number won't accept it (since I have 200 that's quite some probably)

I tried creating another admin user account and logging in with administrator account, I still would get errors when applying/resetting ACL' NFTS or whatever security settings; 2/3 of them would follow through while 1/3 fails most of the time as far as I see.

Try again, this time as hidden admin: Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7 or Vista - How-To Geek

If problem still persists then your last resort is the Repair Install

Reread the steps I gave you for a Clean Boot as you only half-quoted them.

I did the startup and services thing you mentioned and disabled all. But same result.. I will post the pantherlog in the morning if you want.

Please upload the log in something other than RAR format.

These are the logs you requested:
https://***************/files/1366385572/Logs.zip
I tried 3 different times
Difference is I registry cleaned,defragged. USB harddisk unplugged, netwerk kabel unplug, system environment variable added: MIG_UPGRADE_IGNORE_PLUGINS.

That's why 3 times, always same result around the same time, however the logs seem to differ a small bit in size
The log says it fails around 63% which seems right because I always see my screen around transffering programs/files/settings and then at 59000 of the 80000; 63%it reboots, then I get a bluescreen which dissappears in 0.5 sec; so idea what it's telling, and it gets back to reverting upgrade.
Hope you can help me in upgrading this pc.
