I then took the license key number on the back of the gateway PC and did a change windows license key then slui.exe 4 and it has been properly activated OEM Windows Vista with activation of the phone.
At this point, I'm with an its own Active Window Vista Home Premium and need to know how the used the Windows 7 upgrade disc for windows 7 load on my pc without any problem of black screen. I appreciate any help on this.

    Network adapters: Microsoft Windows Mobile remote adapter causes the Windows 7 upgrade to fail.

    I did everything to prepare for the upgrade. The Upgrade Advisor says it all right. But I get the message that this network adapter is a problem. It does not appear in device menager even under hidden objects, so I can't uninstall or update.

    It is obviously a problem for more than two years. Why is there not a difficulty now, or at least a well validated response that meets this situation rather than simply repeat the statement to execute the Advisor (done) or update the driver (which is impossible because the card network can not be found)?

    Step 1:

    c. find under the "Mobile Devices" "Microsoft USB Sync" node. If this is not present, proceed to the next step. Otherwise, right click "Microsoft USB Sync" and choose "Uninstall".

    When you connect your USB phone, it should appear in the device under Mobile Device Manager. Education invites you to look out there and if you find Microsoft USB Sync, uninstall it. If she is not there, go to the next step.

  • known issues with the utilities for the Windows 7 upgrade Lenovo

    I have a Lenovo T61 Thinkpad with Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 32-bit operating system. I have currently only about 1 GB of space on my hard drive Go 67.9. I wanted to get rid of Vista and switch on to 7 but currently I don't have enough hard disk space to do (I need at least 16 GB of free space).  I decided to buy a second hard drive and do a clean install of 7 so I hope I have less problems in the long term.

    My concern is that I ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor report, and he knew questions about utilities of Lenovo, ThinkPad EasyEject Utility and system update. On the Lenovo support Web site, it says that "you can upgrade to Windows 7 without uninstalling these applications, but you may experience problems when their running on Windows 7." When I looked for another application that supports Windows 7, as advised, I found that there are none for 3 known issues of as the cause of the problem is a «limitation of Windows 7» So what the devil? I hate Vista but I do not want to install 7 and then not be able to use my computer properly.

    I'm sure many users Lenovo went from Vista to 7... can anyone give advice on what to if wait if I simply ignore these known issues?
