hi, i've been trying to install a vista upgrade onto my advent 4211 notebook. the installation goes fine as i've used it on my dell laptop, but for some reason it gets about 30% the way through and fails. I've read on some forums that its due to not having a built-in cd-rom. does anyone know if there is a way around this?
yes the notebook is currently running windows xp fine. i was wondering whether anyone had encounted the same problem as I have. its very annoying as i say i have successfully installed it on my dell laptop also, and it works fine.
sorry I should have been clearer. I have TWO SEPERATE (you never know who's watching!!) Vista installations. One of which I have used on my Dell, the other to use on my Advent. However, as the thread explains I am unable to do.
