Upgrade From Windows Vista to Windows 7 Problem Fix

Posted by OurTech Team | Wednesday, October 20, 2010 | Category: |

Root Cause for This Problem

This problem was reported by 9% of installers. During the upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7, the process gets to 62% and then just freezes. When you meet such a problem, you cannot do anything to fix it quickly. Just restart your computer and it should roll back to Windows Vista.

Once this is done, open the file 'C:\WINDOWS \Sources\Panther\setupact.log', to view what happened.

NOTE: The 'C:' letter represents the drive where the operating system is installed. It can be different on your computer.

If you examine the contents of the file, you can see the error message as:
'Warning [0x080b50] MIG AsyncCallback_ApplyStatus: Progress appears to be stuck. Current progress: 62'.

Microsoft says this is usually created because the Iphlpsvc service has stopped responding. This service offers automatic IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) connectivity over an IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) network.

Next, check out the solutions found for solving this issue.
