    Upgraded a plain vanilla version of Vista SP1 on my Thinkpad X61t and after finishing copying all the files it rebooted as Windows 7 and then asked me for the activation code.

    The problem is that the mouse cursor is stuck in the top left corner and the keyboard doesn't respond! If I try to reboot through safe mode (even command prompt) it always tells me that I have to finish the seutp first, displaying a single button (Which I cannot of course click).

    What on earth can I do? Can I remove the installation? But how?

    Plugged in a different mouse, while the keyboard and trackpoint were still dead.
    When finally in Windows 7 I uninstalled all "yellow signed" drivers and rebooted.

    That solved the problem.
