Well your suggestion worked. It appears it was McAfee 8.5i that was the hold

up. I had to uninstall as I am running McAfee ePO sever and it will not

allow turning off services. Once I uninstalled and rebooted the entire

forestprep, domainprep, gpprep, and rodcprep took less than 5 minutes to

complete without errors. Thanks a lot for your help.

You cannot upgrade from 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS which is why running

inside of Windows does not work.

Since it's 64-bit media you will have to clean install.

Where did you get the media?  MSDN?  Technet? Volume Licensing site? OEM?


What is the exact message and code that you are getting when you boot to

the DVD?

Which screens do you see before you get the message?
