    The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.

    You can’t upgrade 64-bit Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. To upgrade, obtain a 64-bit version of the installation disc, or go online to see how to install Windows 7 and keep your files and settings.


    32-bit Windows cannot be upgraded to a 64-bit version of Windows. To upgrade, obtain a 32-bit version of the Windows installation disc.


    Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing.

    I have vista 64 bit, and a 64 bit system, and tried to upgrade with the 64bit install, this is what it tells me.

    If you got that error message, then you are currently trying to install the 32 bit version.

    Get the 64 bit version to install, instead.

    Save yourself a lot of grief. Do a clean install. Upgrades rarely work without problems
