    Haven't found a similar post so I guess i'll add one (sorry if its a repeat I
    think i've searched thoroughly)

    I had upgraded to homeprmium a while back because my university was selling
    upgrade editions for $60 or so. yesterday, I purchased the vista ultimate
    liscence over Anytime Upgrade. I followed the steps and used my Anytime
    Upgrade disc and it installed everything with no glitches. Until, that is,
    it attempted to start up Windows after the completion of the install. i get
    a blue error screen (flashing up too fast to even recognize any of the
    writing) then my computer restarts. I eventually end up with a few screens
    of decisions: the first screen offers the follwoing choices:

    Windows Vista
    Windows Vista Rollback
    Windows Vista

    I've tried both of the "Windows Vista" choices and neither works when I
    progress to the next screen (the one that customarily offers Normal, Safe
    Mode, etc.) and chose the normal start or the start in safe mode options. in
    the end I used teh Windows Vista Rollback and waited until today to try the
    upgrade again. And the problem repeated itself. I've tried booting from DVD
    and runnign the repair option but its been running now for 3+hours and still
    just shows the moving status bar and "searching for problems" underneath it.
    If anybody can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.
