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.
