    Hello everyone, and thanks for your time.

    To begin, I'll explain more about my issue.

    So, I have Windows Vista Home Premium, recently bought. I had a chance to upgrade to Windows 7, with a key, that was included in the Vista package, for free.
    (www.windows7upgradeoption.com, I did all the neccesary registrations on here.)
    So, I orderd it on the 5th of October, and recieved it the 22th of October. After recieving it, I instantly wanted to instal it, which I tempted to.

    I inserted my Disc, the installer popped up. I select
    => Instal now. Then again, I had the choice, between an Upgrade, or installing a clean one.
    I chose the option 'Upgrade'. Then it started installing.
    All the options were done, and it needed a last restart, which it automaticly did. But then, it started up, as Windows 7, and came on the 'Configuring Registration information.' & Then my pc suddenly shuts down. When I booted it up again after that, it just started up as Windows Vista again.


    I seriously need help, asap. Thanks in advance.

    It appears to have rolled back to Vista?

    Did you check in Disk Management to see it is as you expect?

    There may be something preventing the upgrade install on the Vista partition.

    You could try making a second partition - and custom install onto that.

    Well, it did rollback. It's at the 'Configurating Registration settings' then my PC just shutted down out of nothing, started backup, and then it gave me the Windows 7 screen, saying :
    'upgrade failed to instal. Getting back to Vista, do not turn of your pc"
