Windows 7: Windows 7 Upgrade Stuck

23 Aug 2009   #1

Vista Business
Windows 7 Upgrade Stuck

Hey all,

I'm upgrading from Vista Business 64 bit to Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

Before installation, I ran Windows upgrade advisor and everything turned out fine. However, I am currently stuck at the last step of the installation.

First it would show this message:
Windows 7 Upgrade Stuck-0823092136a.jpg

Then it would display this:
Windows 7 Upgrade Stuck-0823092136.jpg

Then it would repeat. The installation has been stuck like this for the past 3 hours. I do not have anything plugged in my computer besides my mouse, keyboard, and monitor.

My specs are:
CPU: Intel Q6600
Motherboard: Gigabye GA-EP45-UD3P
RAM: 8gigs

Any help would be appreciated

Windows 7 x64 finally!

Welcome to Windows 7 forums.
The first thing is to make sure your installation DVD is OK, have you checked the checksum and burned it with slow speed? When the installation hangs halfway it might be a bad DVD. What version are you installing?
Also, try installing with only 1 memory stick, put the rest back after / if you succeed. Are you using > DDR2 1066?
Let us know if you make progress
