Windows Vista Upgrade Dell Dimension 4400

Dear All,
 
I have been trying to upgrade a Dimension 4400 1.9 GHZ, 1GB Ram, XT1300 Radieon Video Card to Vista.  The install goes great until the first reboot and then it fails...usually a blue screen hardware error and then restores back to XP.  I have tried upgrading about 6 times now, removing devices, upgraded bios and even trying to watch the blue screen to see what the driver or devcie was.....it flashes the blue screen so fast and moves on that I can't see it.  Nothing is noted in the event viewer.
 
I have done the following:
 
I have removed all hardward except harddrive, dvd player, and video card to remove any hardware issues.  I have also tried several other hard drives with the same results.  Tried two different video cards.
 
I have updated the BIOS to A06 (and set it to defaults) and the Microsoft Vista Readiness tool and the Dell Readiness tool both say I am good to go.  I have NO software or device problems showing on either tool.
 
Is anyone else having this problem?  I think the only thing I have left is to remove the Sony DVD player and try a different one.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated........has anyone got a Dimension 4400 to upgrade to VISTA?

Thanks,
Bob

It look like you are trying to do an upgrade from XP. Have you tried to do a clean install. If another HD is handy give that a try, or back up you xp then clean install.

I tried both  upgrade and clean install.  I have tried different hard drive too, that didnt work either.  I have spent more time on this than I should have, but I am thinking it could be the video card.......just dont know at this point.

I have updated the bios...but wonder about the AGP settings in the bios as well.  Still stumped.

Can you see if you have any logs as mentioned in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927521?

Particularly, it would be nice to see the last 10 lines or so of each of these files:

C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setupact.log

Try uninstalling IIS. A few threads I found on the Internet state: the "Failed execution of queue item Installer: Generic Command ({81a34a10-4256-436a-89d6-794b97ca407c}"  supposedly refers to failure to update the IIS Metabase.

Ok everyone...this is almost comical.  I had tried installing Vista on my machine for about 1 week, I think I am on try number 11.  Well after flashign the bios, swaping hard drives, video cards, removing dvd drives, uninstalling just about all software that even hinted at not being vista compliant........the mystery is sovled.

I want to thank alienss for the tip.  I uninstalled IIS and yes it worked like a charm.  I started the upgrade last night when I went to bed and woke up this morning and couldnt believe it worked after uninstalling IIS.  All that work and one of Microsoft services was causing the problem all along.  I cant tell you how many posters that purported the same situation I had and couldnt find a solution.  I hope others try uninstalling IIS as well.  

Thanks to all for helping me out.

Glad you got it working, but shame on Microsoft for making such a cryptic message!  A Microsoft engineer was the original one that solved this (figures).
