    I am trying to upgrade my Dell optiplex 745 with XP SP3 to Vista wo clean install, ref. .

    Have tried two times now and still getting below error “Windows could not update the computer’s boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed” even after resetting system as well as bootcfg /rebuild from XP recovery console. There is no UEFI in bios for this dell optiplex 745 I am using.
    Any suggestions?
