Consider the following scenario. You try to upgrade a Windows XP-based computer to Windows Vista. When you run the Windows Vista Setup program, the upgrade option is disabled in the Install Windows window. Additionally, the Install Windows window displays the following text:
Upgrade has been disabled. - Your Windows configuration cannot be upgraded.
The following message is logged in the Setupact.log file:
Date Time, Info MIG Expanding raw path D:\Documents and Settings Date Time, Info MIG %ProfilesDirectory% (D:\Documents and Settings) is not on drive C Date Time, Info [0x080755] MIG DoComplianceChecks: CheckUnsupportedConfig not satisfied (- Your Windows configuration cannot be upgraded.)

This issue occurs because you put the "Documents and Settings" folder on a partition that differs from the system partition.
