gateway laptop win 7 install problem

I have a gateway m 7315u with vista premium- 4 gigs of ram
intel duo core 2 ghz 64 bit. I have the win 7 disk I upgraded my desktop
with no problems. It is good for 3 pc and I put the win 7 disk
in my laptop and everything goes fine untill it gets halfway thru
" gathering files settings and programs" it stops and says it cannot
continue..I have disabled all the programs on vista and have gone to
bios and disabled usb....I have run win compabiltiy check and I get
no problems at all...I must be missing something. If you know
please share with me....THanks to all who can help

Please update your system specs - the link is in my signature.

Have you visited the Gateway website and looked for Windows 7 FAQs or Windows 7 drivers for your computer?

Why did you disable your USB ports? Re-enable them.

Doing a Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

I didn't find any Windows 7 drivers for your laptop, but that doesn't necessarily mean you can't successfully upgrade. There may be anti-virus, third party security software, or any number of little things that might be preventing you from doing an in-place upgrade. I recommend using the Easy File Transfer program to copy all of your settings and data to a thumb drive, separate partition, DVD, etc, then do a clean installation of Windows 7, then run the EFT again and import your data. You will have to reinstall your applications.
