Hi,

This error related to Data reading problem with your vista Disk.
It might be possible that your Win 7 disk has got scratches, which causes setup process not start.
Please make sure your Vista Disk is clean. You should also clean you DVD Drive lens.


Another reason is that there could be bad sectors on the hard drive you are trying to install Win 7 on.



Regards.

I got a error code Ox80070017 when i was installing" windows home premium"


That indicates an error reading and writing a file from the installation disk. You could try a slower rate on the optical drive. Read this stuff

Upgrading windows vista 64bit


Did you download your Win7 upgrade or did you buy a boxed copy? If you have a boxed version, check in the box. My Win7 upgrade came with both the 32-bit and the 64-bit DVDs in the box. Try using the other optical disk in the upgrade package. If only one disc is in the package, contact the source where you got the upgrade. Only the package for installing a new OS (OEM or full version) comes with just the one disc included. For those, you need to specify the type of system on ordering.

If you downloaded the upgrade, you will need to get a different upgrade file and burn it to disc or make a USB installer for that version of Windows 7.

To confirm your current version of Windows, click Start and choose the Control Panel. Click on System and Security and then on System. This page will display the Windows version and append x64 if you have the 64-bit version.

Alternatively, download the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor , and it will confirm if your system is compatible with Windows 7 and which version you need.

I hope this helps.

Acer 5535 freezing


If your computer freezes,then the problem is related to the registry. When the Windows registry is filled with errors it can't stop your system from properly communicating information.

The only solution for freezing is to clean the registry of corrupt files and various errors. Not only will this prevent computer crashing, it will also speed up your system considerably.

I'm trying to upgrade from 64-bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7. When I run the installation disk, I'm getting the following error message, which appears to be contradictory in my opinion:...


I have seen this type of problem before, the only real way around it is to install a fresh copy of windows 7 not to upgrade, you will receive a message that asks you if you want to keep the previous windows in a folder called old windows, from there you will be able to access all your old files and programs, be aware though some programs may not work on windows 7, and you may need to have updated drivers for the systems peripherals. So when you run the windows 7 disk choose clean install and go from there. i hope this helps
