    Windows 7 upgrade kit not working and I am getting an error message "Windows could not complete the installation...."

    Earlier, I was using windows Vista 64 bit edition. I have got the Upgrade kit for windows 7. Before starting the upgrade, I have consulted many people and read many instruction manual. The upgrade process started normally without any issue and it was going to finish the installation but flashed an error message "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on theis compuiter, restart the installation.". I am consistenly gettinng the same error message again and again. What should I do to fix this issue?

    When you get this error, press "Shift+F10" to get the command Prompt and type "mmc". After typing the same, press the Enter button on your keyboard.You will see another screen.Select the "Console Root" file and then press "ctrl+M". After that select "Computer Management" and click on "Ok". After that,double click on "Computer Management(Local)">>System Tools>>Local Users and Groups>>Users.Once done,double click on "Administrator" and uncheck the option which says "Account is Disabled" and click on "Ok". After that right click on Administrator>>Set Password and set a good password for getting started. It should work but if it fails then open the command prompt again by pressing Shift+F10 and then type "CD C:\windows\system32\oobe".After that type "msoobe" and hit enter key and follow the onscreen instructions.

    At the time you get this error, press "Shift
    +F10" to open the command Prompt
    and type "mmc" and press the Enter .You should see another screen.Select the "Console Root" file and then press "ctrl+M". After that
    select "Computer Management" and
    click on "Ok". Then double click
    on "Computer Management
    (Local)">>System Tools>>Local Users
    and Groups>>Users.Now double click on "Administrator"
    and uncheck the option which says
    "Account is Disabled" and click on
    "Ok". After that right click on
    Administrator>>Set Password and set
    a good password for getting started.

    If this does not work then I think your Package is corrupt.
