Check the programs that vista says it can not update. They may be incompatible with Vista. You can find this out by running the Windows Vista upgrade advisor available for free at microsoft.com. If you really want Vista & can do without the offending programs you can uninstall them & then run the upgrade. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Need help, I was told to contact Hp as I purchased a Vista Home premium edition Sept. 19th of this year. Now need the free windows 7 version sent to me so I may up grade. I have my reciept here with me....


That web-site _does_ work for me.
It redirects to:

https://www.hpwindows7upgrade.arvato.com/north_america/Endcustomer/default.aspx

This latter page states:

Welcome to the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program from HP

This program offers a Windows 7 Upgrade Kit for qualified HP PC customers.
For the easiest ordering process and to avoid delays we recommend that you:
1. Place your order using the eligible HP PC (or have it close-by)
2. Scan a copy of your eligible PC proof of purchase before you begin ordering

Important:
1. Proof of Purchase (receipt, packing slip) is required to complete your order.
2. Shipping and handling costs may apply. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is shipped.

The Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program from HP requires you to provide your HP PC product serial number.
Your serial number will be used to confirm program eligibility, and, after program completion,
will be archived by HP to meet Microsoft program requirements.
* I agree to provide the serial number of my HP PC in order to place a Windows 7 upgrade kit order.



Their "Contact Us" page states:
Important Customer Message: We are currently experiencing very high call volumes due to customer excitement over Windows 7. Thank you for your patience!

------------------------------------------------------------


If you're on dial-up, scan the original receipt,
and find the "serial-number" somewhere on the case of your computer.
Then, find a computer (Public Library? Internet Cafe' ?) that has a high-speed connection, and try again to access the web-page that they told you to access.

My windows can't check for updates (windows vista home premium). it's showing error code 80244019


Press Win+R, type 'services.msc' and press Enter. Respond to the UAC prompt. Check that Background Intelligent Transfer Service is started and its startup type is 'Automatic.' (It can also be Automatic (Delayed Start).) If it is not started, right-click on it and select Start. Scroll down to Windows Update to make sure that it is started and it startup type is 'Automatic' or 'Automatic (Delayed Start).' If it is not started, right-click on it and select Start. If you had to start either service, try to run Windows Update again by clicking on Start -> All Programs -> Windows Update.
