Hello,

I have a MAJOR headache going here...ALL DAY NOW! Was installing Windows 7 upgrade over Vista. The program was stopped without completing install/upgrade. Now the thing will not boot up into Windows, it starts up with a DOS Window only. Please help get out of DOS and install new Windows 7 upgrade. PLEASE :D

Do you mean that you are able to type commands in it? Or is it an error message that appears?

If possible, try:

bootrec /fixmbr

bootrec /fixboot

thank you for the reply. I did try both of them. I don't know much about the DOS stuff, but the windows start screen is behind the little DOS screen and I can type commands in the DOS window, but it really has taken be nowhere and each time I close the DOS screen it trys to open windows, then the DOS screen comes back. I have been messing with it all day today.

Hi, nanazap. How's your holiday? Has the problem been solved or is it still there?

What's your previous Vista version and what's the Windows version of the CD that you're using to upgrade to Windows 7?

Did you ever try the upgrade again?

Does the following link help?
