Windows VISTA 64 BSOD when running upgrade advisor


New Member
Hi All,
I am new here. I dl'd the upgrade advisor today to see about preordering. I have tried to run it 3 times and get the BSOD about 2 minutes into it scanning my system. Does this mean that my system cannot run windows 7? I find it hard to believe considering that I have a quad core intel chip and 4 GB of memory?

Also, I see upgrades for Windows Home Basic and Pro but not Ultimate.

I have a few questions:

1. At home, I have one computer with Ultimate(64 bit version installed) and one with Home Premium(32 bit version). Will I be able to upgrade the Vista Ultimate to 7 Ultimate or will I have to downgrade?

2. At work, we have 7 computers with OEM Vista 64 bit(not sure if it is professional or what). Do I need to upgrade those to professional or home or does it matter?
