Some driver is not loading. I would reduce to minimum hardware, and try the upgrade

I would do a clean install to a different windir folder, and try to save data. If you can revert to the old OS you can run the FAST
wizard to save the profile, and restore it later.

Save settings and data with the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (FAST wizard): Go To: http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/fast.htm
