Well I finally bit the bullet and decided to install Parallels for my MBP (my works VPN site only works on IE). Parallels' install was straight forward and when it came to installing Vista I received a few errors. It took reinstalling it twice to get it to work. Next, I thought I would upgrade my XP PC to Vista. Put in the install DVD and everything seemed to run fine and then the PC timed out, restarted and then got stuck on the blue screen. After a little trouble shooting and online searching I determined it was the video card drivers. I disabled them and started again. This time everything seemed to work fine. After a few hours of waiting for Vista to install, I decided to go downstairs. I came back to find the blue screen of death again. I restarted the computer and now it runs through the boot sequence and lands on the safe mode screen. So I tried all the different boot options in safe mode and they all result in the blue screen. I can't get my computer to even get past this now. The whole time I was thinking to myself just how piss poor Windows is. I consider myself fairly computer literate and I'm stuck. I can't imagine how many other users have "bricked" their PCs over the upgrade. Now I'm stuck with a PC that won't boot and I have no idea what can be done to fix it. Shame on you Windows for making such a horrible product that is so dysfunctional that you can't even upgrade from one Windows product to another.
