    Any help would be GREAT!

    I'm tryin to upgrade from Windows XP Media Center 2005 SP2 w/ all updates to Windows Vista Home Premium (x32 Upgrade only DVD)

    I have ran Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor and it found no problems

    I ran the Windows Upgrade DVD from my XP desktop, updated the installer, ran the combatiblitiy check (only had a prob w/ MSN Messenger 5.0) then the install started and ran w/out a hich untill the final reboot to run Windows for the first time and that is were my trouble starts, first try I saw the mouse pointer then the screen locked-up w/ a red stripe on top, black screen w/ white mouse pointer frozen, next try after reboot, BSOD (something about cashing/shadowing... ati.. somethin) then I restart, it does a rollback... any help would be great thank you.

    I would boot into your Xp media center install and get the latest video drivers. Also check and install any BIOS updates for you motherboard. Then try upgrading again...
