    I'm trying to install vista business on a laptop and when it gets to the "checking compatibility" part it just "checks" forever. The laptop passed the Vista compatibility tool that they offer. Plus, if it was not compatible, I would assume it will report that instead of getting into a continuous check. Any advice?

    Are you trying a complete install or upgrade?

    Also, what time of file system is your hdd? FAT32 or NTFS?

    It is an upgrade.
    How do I check which file system I have?

    Alright, before you do the upgrade again uninstall any programs you do not need and also your virus scanner, spyware remover, etc.

    s4baz,

    I got it to install but Vista wont let me reinstall AntiVirus 2006 since it is not "compatible" but gives me a link to symantec to fix the issue. Symantec wont let me install the fix since Antivirus is not on my computer....a never ending circle.

    Vista will not let you install Norton? What is the error?
