You want to try upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7?
There can be a possible problem you try to upgrade from Enterprise edition to a lower ( ca.: Professional) edition or you haven't installed the latest updates ( try to update the OS before start upgrade process).

The best solution ( if you have a licence key for 7 ) to save all your datas with Windows Easy Transfer ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14179 ) and after it boot from the Windows 7  media and do a clean install.

Did you install something that is asking you for SP1 update?

Go to your control panel /Open Windows Update and review your history.
If you have a lot of failed updates that the service pack 1 requires could be the cause.
Try and locate the update/s that have failed to install,
you can view further information about any failed update/s by double-clicking the update
Confirm that the service pack is not already installed and that you are not running a prerelease version of the service pack, since Vista SP 2 is also available, if you have never updated this system it is very out of date.
How to obtain the latest Windows Vista service pack

Check for pending updates or device driver updates
with an upgrade to sp1 all drivers must be up to date.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

venkatspb--Is Win 7 already installed on the PC?  The first message suggests Vista is installed.  Install Win 7 first.
That first message is very suspicious and does not look like a genuine Microsoft message.  Scan for malware.
