Have you done this ???
To resolve this problem yourself, follow these steps:
1. Restart the computer. Then, your computer will roll back to Windows Vista.
2. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
3. On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.
4. Under System variables, click New.
5. Type MIG_UPGRADE_IGNORE_PLUGINS in the Variable name field.
6. Type IphlpsvcMigPlugin.dll in the Variable value field.
7. Click OK three times to close the dialog boxes.
8. Start the upgrade installation again.
Please do this and again restart the upgradation process.
Thanks again, I saw the above but the cursor is just going round & round as if trying!! I've unplugged but obviously battery is fully charged on laptop, it's not allowing me to do anything. Should I insert my vista disc & see what happens?
Thanks buddy, I can't believe I'm being such an idiot today!! I wasn't holding the power button long enough. It's rolled back to vista. I have to head off to work now, so I won't be able to attempt to install windows 7 until tomorrow. Can I ask, is it a good idea to complete the 62% tasks before I re-attempt or just try again?? I did everything the compatibility disc told me to do last time, so I thought I was all set!! I really appreciate all your help. Have a good day
An update!! The manual fix didn't work although this time the screen says please wait at 62% instead of transfering ex amount of total amount, it's been like this for 30mins so I guess it's safe to say the manual fix hasn't worked. Ok, next I will try 'fix it for me'
Hi Win 7! Sorry for late reply! was at weekend!
You can go for the clean install, before doing that Please Backup all your data to an External Drive.
Clean Install Windows 7 with Upgrade Media.
This will defenitely help you for doing a Clean Install using an upgrade media.
I did same for my studio 1450. But I didn'y got any problems during manual activation.
If you get any problems during activation, go for Method #2: registry hack method mentioned there, worked fine for my buddy's Studio 17.
Please use format option and wipe your HDD, in order to avoid or take over any errors in new install.
Waiting for your reply after trying clean install
All the best.
