I am trying to upgrade from XP home to Vista Premium. Everything goes great until the system has to reboot and start Vista. When trying to shut down it hangs then I get the BSOD with the error Driver_Power_Failure.
Of course when the system restarts it rolls back to XP. From what I have read on the internet this is related to a device or driver not shutting down in timely manner. So I have stripped the machine down to the basics and still receive this. Also just formatted the drive and reinstalled a bare xp. Still receive the error. i ran the upgrade adviser from Microsoft and it said my system is good to go. Any ideas?
