Problem installing vista

  quod12 13:27 23 Nov 2007

I've been trying to install vista on my pc. Vista has checked my machine and all is compatible..

I start to install vista through xp but the installation hangs at 27% on the second section uncompressing window files.

Any help? thanks

Obviously an upgrade, are you sure that you are upgrading to the correct version. Vista is very fussy. For instance XP Home can only be upgraded to Basic or Home Premium.

Yes I have an Home Premium oem version and home xp

Is this an upgrade disc or a full version, and was it supplied with the PC?
