Upgrading from vista home premium to ultimate

I have vista home premium installed on my computer, ( I have a Gateway desk top) i upgraded to vista ultimate successfully with no problem, and it worked fine, but recently, my hard drive had to be replaced, and when I went to reinstall the ultimate, it didn't install, it went through the process of installing, but then at the end it said it could not be installed because some components were missing, help, I m stumped and i do not want to do a clean install because I don't know how to do it and I don't want to lose anything.

1. get the vista install disk and put it in your drive,
2. copy all files from disk to a folder on your desktop
3. run the install from the folder on your desktop
4. enjoy vista!

your problem is your disk. your disk is probably damaged. i had the same issue before, just do what i put down and it should work.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

Update to windows 7 on Gateway M-1624 Notebook with vista


You can upgrade to windows 7 from Vista is pretty straight forward. All you have to do is put Windows 7 CD in while running Vista and automatic startup should show you options to choose. There's some trouble with it sometimes for example, you can't upgrade a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version, or upgrade from a higher edition of Windows, such as Windows Vista Ultimate, to a lower edition, such asWindows 7 Home Premium. If this is the case, you'll need to use the Custom option during installation. Please remember that while Upgrading will keep all of your files and programs, custom installation will NOT. So you would need to back everything up before you start. Before you install Windows 7 make sure that all of programs that you need will work on it. For more information visit this microsoft website dedicated to upgrading to windows 7 >> http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/help/upgrading-from-windows-vista-to-windows-7 Have a nice day and good luck.
