I am trying to install Windows 7 on my Motion Computing M1300 tablet. I have tried installing using the original files downloaded from Digital River, the ISO created from those files, and a separate USB hard drive and get the following error-
The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading.
Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.
