Window7 Ultimate Upgrade will not install


New Member
Upgrading Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista Ultimate. The install process stops and informs me of a needed upgrade: Adaptec SCSI Card 39160.

I do have the card installed with no RAID setup. It is the latest version and I had no problem under Vista install.

Do you happen to have the updated SCSI drivers you could load during the install?

Did the compatibility check show this to be a problem?

Or, remove the card. You might try disabling it in Device Manager, but I don't know if that will work.
