Typically Windows 7 needs 16Gb space and during the upgrade it will need space for temporary files. 17.9Gb is cutting it fine and you need to free up some space.

This problem occurs when the virtual memory paging file is reduced below the recommended size. Windows upgrade requires that the page file be the recommended size, and it requires that sufficient space be available on the drive to accommodate a default sized page file. By default, Windows stores the paging file on the system volume. Therefore, there is insufficient free space on the system volume when you try to upgrade to Windows 7
