I've got a computer with Vista 32-bit and it sucks so I'm trying to upgrade to Windows 7, but the installer does not launch it just hangs with the cursor and the little spinning circle. I know it's not the disk because I tried it in Safe Move and the installer launched! (only for it to tell me I can't install Windows in Safe Mode, GRRRR!! :fou:  )

I ran Combofix and it found some viruses and cleaned them up. I also ran chk dsk / r but I think it already did some major damage to the system because even installers for FireFox won't launch and it keeps saying things like
Quote:
regsvr32.exe -bad image.
C:\Windows\AppPatch/AcGenral.DLL is either not designed to run on Windows or contains an error.


I told my friend about this and he was like "yea, Vista sucks... You should get Windows 7" and I was like DUH! :sarcastic:

install Windows 7 for x86 and then apply almost all the drivers from the Vista Drivers' CD, except the Video Drivers, which must be taken from the intel page --> gm965 graphic drivers for Windows 7-RC.

tips can make Vista drivers work on Windows 7:

1. Right click on the setup.exe file
2. Go to properties and choose compatibility
3. Check on run as vista
4. Check on run as admin
5. Click apply and OK to exit
6. Right click on setup file again and make sure to run as Admin

This is an official, legal Windows 7 disc, right?

Yeah. Check into that.
I got ahold of fake Win-7 discs and they wasn't bootable at all from motherboard's bios.
If you have problems, a fake disc could be it.

no such checkbox to run as vista or admin. Only windows 95,98, NT, etc...
