    Windows Vista upgrade stops at 62% and system gets hanged.

    I was trying to upgrade my Windows Vista. This is the first time I was upgrading my Vista. It was proceeding smoothly. But it got stuck right at 62%.Then even the system got hanged. After which I was unable to do anything. Then I tried upgrading after a while and there was it again. Got hanged at 62% again. What is the problem here sir?

    From what you have said about your system status, it seems you are having a problem from three possible corners.
    1. The problem might have come from a corrupt file that windows installer is unable to desypher, and owing to that hangs after reaching 62% where the
    compressed file is located.
    2. The media in which the files are stored is damaged at the location where the installer reading shows 62%, and unable to proceed further.
    3. The HDD where the expanded files are written after extracting from the Windows software CD is corrupt at that specific location.

    Chech those points using a disk doctor and the problem will be gone except if the file is corrupted itself.
    Thank you.
