    Hello,
    Here’s one for you all.
    System: Dell 1.3 P4
    O/S: Me
    I have updated Bios and all drivers that can be updated with out installing the Win XP pro O/S. When I run The upgrade adviser I gets all the way to the end with no problem and An adviser window pops up Fatal Error: "Setup cannot continue. Contact Microsoft Tech support [error: 564ff58h]". I did contact Microsoft they could not solve the problem!! Dell Well, When I get support from India, well they just say there should be no problem. When I got an American we went through all the point. End results is they don’t know. I have a lot of files and programs and don't want to do a fresh install.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks RC
    :confused:

    Is the operating system you bought just an upgrade? that might be the problem, i had a similar problem and it was because i was doing an upgrade install and not a full flush and full operating install. not totally sure though, but thats my opinion.

    In all actuallity, you do want to do a fresh install.. you run into many problems when you upgrade from one OS to another.. My suggestion would be backup your data and do a fresh install, Or use a partitoning software to partiton enough free space for XP and use the other partition for your data/programs.

    Thanks, I have considered putting it on the D: partition
    And yes you are right I should do a fresh install. It just took so long to get what I have But we must move forward. Thanks once more.
