Updating windows Vista to Windows 7. Getting error code 80070005


Its better to do a clean re-install than upgrade. You will have more problems after upgrade. Just back up your data (external drive recommended) before you re-install.

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!

Windows 7 ultimate upgrade from vista home premium on vaio laptop, now some programs and my cd-dvd-rw device won't function right, if at all. Also wan-miniport drivers installed themselves and I can't...

In regards to upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 the thing to look at is how long were you running Windows Vista before you did the upgrade.

Normally you would need to reinstall a few driver just because Windows 7 has a different kernel then Vista does but alot of times you are reinstalling the same drivers.

Normally when you are having the problems that you are having this is a sign that you had some problems in Windows before doing the upgrade. This is why in general when doing an upgrade it is good idea to do a full reinstall of the OS with your upgrade. Note with manfactured computers like your notebook what you should do is back your data then do a factory restore of your Windows Vista. After the restore you will have a clean base to do your upgrade on so Windows 7 should run fine.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I tried to upgrade my acer t180 to windows 7 from vista basic, no i"m having dmi problems... seems like it's stuck... help please


Hello kelajo34,

There might be a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the Acer T180 Vista Basic DMI. The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the Acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer T180 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

Also, It might be a good idea to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before upgrading from vista basic to Windows 7 on the Acer T180. The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor download link is at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b544e90-7659-4bd9-9e51-2497c146af15&displaylang=en

Have a great day,

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

I had installed Home Vista before Ike and now the systems keeps telling me I have to upgrade my windows 2002? My case number was 1078167319


Hi,

Prior to the windows vista installation, did you reformat your hard drive and clean out everything? I am not sure why you have that message, asking you to upgrade your windows 2002 if your system has windows vista already,

I suggest, if you keep on having this message. Try reformatting and reinstalling your vista again. But before you do it, make it sure that you passed all the system requirements since windows vista has higher specification than your old operating system.


Keep me posted.

Thanks
