Upgrade from Vista home premium x64 to Windows 7 Home premium x64
Posted on 2012-09-15
I am trying to do an upgrade to an HP desktop that has Vist home premium x64 and is installed in raid. When the upgrade gets about 85% complete i get a message that "this upgrade is not cofigured for this hardware".
After a little research i found that it is likely that the raid controller in the vista install is not compatible with the windows 7 upgrade.
I created a second partition on the drive and tried a clean install and got the same message as before. Now i downloaded the most current Intel raid controller as suggested by microsoft and did an F6 install of the controller during setup and then the install went silky smooth (fresh install on clean partition).
My question is, can i somehow do an f6 install of the raid controller while doing the upgrade to vista somehow? To my knowledge there is no prompts during the upgrade process to install the new controller. I have looked high and low and get nothing. Maybe i am able to just update the raid controller in vista and the rest will sort itself out? Not too experienced with raid setups so this issue is a bit foriegn to me.
Thanks for all your help.
