Free Win7 Upgrade DVD from HP is not working

Hewlett-packard / Pavilion p6130y

Specs: windows vista home premium 32bits, 4 GB
I recently got my free upgrade disk from HP after purchasing HP pavilion p6130y desktop.
i followed the instructions on and the process went smoothly until the part where it said it is "transferring files, settings, and programs." When it reached 62%, it stayed there for a bit then it crashed and then the following message pops up after the comoputer reboots: "This version of windows could not be isntalled. Your previous version of Windows has been restored, and you can continue to use it. Before trying to install this version of Windows again, check onlin to see if it is compatible with your computer. Go to the Microsoft website (www.microsoft.com) and search for 'upgrade advisor.'"
Any idea why this is happening?
by the way, here is the link to my computer's specs:

Boot hopefully to a vista dvd and try repair.

You also may need to run chkdsk or make more room on you partition.

If uninstalling added items added and maybe defrag-ing doesn't help, you might want to call HP since it's their machine and they supplied the disc and they indicate compatibility and they should know the most about it.
