Q: Not enough space for temp files?

Helo, I'm trying to install vista over XP and whenever I press "Install Now" the following error comes up: "This computer does not have enough space for temporary files..." I have 15 GB left of space on drive C: and atleast 20 on the other partitions.

Answer

A:

For Hard Drive, read PARTITION

It is the size of the Partition that matters, NOT the total size of your Hard Drive!

"It does not matter if you have a 1,000Gbs Hard Drive; it is the size of the Partition, and the free space on it, where XP is installed, that has to accomodate the Vista Ultimate upgrade install process. "

The have been given the correct advice/options on what to do by both of us.

Install on a smaller partition where XP is already installed, or re-partiiton your Hard Drive.




Good luck with it.
