Vista Ultimate Upgrade Fails - Freeze at Completing Upgrade(Install)

    First time on upgrade everything went well until the end, then
    "Windows could not configure one or more system components. To install
    Windows, restart the computer and then restart the installation."
    Subsequent times after this froze on "Installing update", mouse was
    frozen.

    Running windows vista advisor 1.0 tells me my Nvidia 8800 GT will not
    work with Vista. Now thats pretty strange, it worked fine with home
    premium before the upgrade not to mention it is a fairly recent card
    with upgraded drivers.

    Before I try again, I have read about some problems with Sata but had
    no problems previous. Just to be sure I opened my case and noticed my
    drive was attached to Sata3, moved it to Sata 1. Also removed and ide
    backdrive. Also I'll probably remove all usb external devices except
    keyboard and remove the side of my computer case just in case
    overheating was an issue.

    Any ideas?
    Is there a log file somewhere that might tell me what went wrong?

    The answer seems to be remove all usb/wireless devices. After hooking mouse
    and keyboard directly to the computer the upgrade succeded. A problem with
    blue screen upon rebooting was solved by booting linux and removing the
    offending sys file (daemon tools) from windows/system32/drivers.
