Windows XP to Windows 7
I used the windowss upgrade advisor and everything seems to be a go except my nvidia control panel. I have an 8500gt which is enough to run widnows aero or whatever and before installing the nvidia drivers the program said my graphics adapter was insufficient to run windows aero. Now that I installed the driver for it, the program says that there are issues with the nvidia control panel. That is the only problem that upgrade advisor finds. Now when I install windows 7 using the custom install selection, everything goes fine. It loads installs windows files, reboots. Then it goes through the second step and reboots. The third step and then it reboots. When it gets to the last step it reboots but then it gives me a message that says "This version of windows could not be installed...." it boots to XP. Somewhere I read to disable cacheing in my BIOS. I have done that and every time I try to install windows 7(a custom or CLEAN install) it sends me back to windows XP.
Anyone have any ideas of what to do? I have seen this problem listed as an issue with vista upgrades but now with XP to 7 clean installs. Please help
