Upgrade the file %1 from %2

by jerrywh1 / September 18, 2004 2:15 PM PDT

When booting with ME, I get the message "Windows could not upgrade the file %1 from %2
%1: %2"

Anybody got any idea what's that all about?

I jumped the gun a little bit. After I ran scandisk (which found and corrected problems) it cured the problem. Hopefully, this might help someone with a the same problem.

If you had'd the error message you would find another reason. But multiple boots can resolve this in certain cases and cause the owner to think something they did fixed it.
