Validate Error 64 Bit Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Darin,

    I have tried both the system restore and the system scan.   Neither one has fixed the problems.
    Any other ideas?

    With the OS in this state, would an upgrade to Windows 7 be possible?  Or will it fail to install because it considers my Vista as invalid?

    Thanks,
    Scott

  • Hi scarpenter002,

      Sorry I missed this question in your original thread.

      To answer your question, I don't know.  Install isn't my main area of focus, so I haven't had the chance to attempte to install Win7 (using the Upgrade process) on a non-genuine Vista. 

      I recommend asking that question in the 'Install Upgrade & Activate' section of the Windows 7 Answers Forum http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windows7

    Any answer I gave would either be a flat guess or just a repeat of the standard corparate "that's not a supported upgrade path" line.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
    Darin MS
