    After purchasing the upgrade for Vista Ultimate it consistently fails at the
    "Expanding Files" with the above error code. I have tried both the source
    files on the IBM X60 laptop and the Upgrade Anytime Disc. I have seen many
    instances of this on the web, but no solutions.

  2. Usually when a Microsoft OS doesn't install it is bad hardware somewhere.

    Are you sure you dont have bad ram. I kept on getting errors when I tried to
    install Windows home server on a machine with bad ram.
