When you try to upgrade a computer to Windows Vista, you receive the following error message:

This problem occurs if the active partition on the computer is a hidden partition. To install Windows Vista, the Windows Vista Setup program must put certain files on the active partition. However, if the active partition is hidden, the Windows Vista Setup program cannot locate this partition.
