Default Lost data while upgrading to Windows Vista

sponsored links
I tried to upgrade my laptop (primary PC) to vista the other day. After running through the compatibility check (took a VERY long time as I have a lot of stuff installed on this box), it said I needed to uninstall Sharepoint Services. The problem is, I can't find where I have sharepoint services installed. It doesn't show up in the Add/Remove Programs list, there's no mention of it in my start menu, and the stsadm command mentioned here doesn't exist on my system.

The only mention I was able to find of Sharepoint services was under Office. It had Sharepoint Services Support installed. Uninstalling that didn't help, though. The other bizarre thing is the upgrade advisor said I was good to go. When I run setup from the DVD, it says I have to uninstall Sharepoint Services. Now guess what, this was not the only thing Next time when I boot my system it did not turn on. I Tried every possible thing but I guess I’ve lost my all data. Please tell me what I can do suggest a place where I can find the solution.

Sounds Similar Problems. I tried to upgrade to Windows Vista this past weekend and accidentally formatted and erased my entire hard drive in the process. Called Microsoft tech support and realized the mistake I had made. I thought I had lost all of my files until I found SalvageRecovery a data recovery software made by a SalvageData Labs and their guys helped to walk me though restoring all of my old files. May be you can think of trying it.

Exclamation DO or Don't

if you have to you can do a customer install with no forrmatting and look in windows.old for files but the CD key will not work. i would suggest to do a clean install because any trace of an older program can cuse issues in vista.
