Upgrades have tended to be problematic - it's always best to take backups of your data and do a clean install. I'd recommend that for your next attempt to get Vista on your machine.

Oh, and unless it's a very new PC I'd check that you have the latest version of your bios; and run the Vista upgrade adviser if you haven't already.
