"Trying to go from win. X P to win. 7"
Do you get a normal Windows desktop?

"cannot get updates to install"
Think you mean, cannot get upgrade to install.

Error is due to corruption. Either the ISO is corrupted, or the burned disc or thumb drive is.

Use this to put the ISO on the thumb drive.

What exactly is your situation? Are you now running Windows 7? There is no upgrade path from XP to 7, it has to be a clean install. So the XP part of your question is irrelevant.

Assuming you are now running Windows 7, did you install from a Microsoft retail DVD or what? And have you activated the install? A clean, activated install of a genuine copy of Windows should update without any problem. "Error code 0x6" doesn't sound like a normal Windows Update error - they are usually much longer than that.

"All conditions have been satisfied for the installation"

Be careful if it only meets the minimum install or it will crawl.
Let us know the exact computer model number and how much RAM you have installed. The more information the merrier.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Still using XP.Once win 7 disc is inserted, I get the message checking compatibility, then I get the option to install now.Then setup begins copying files. At that point I am asked to go online to get the latest installation files, at that point I am told files could not be obtained and I receive an error message.Checked compatibility advisor and there were no problems which could prevent installation . System has 2gigabytes of ram.

You haven't provided enough info. Where's the computer specs? How big is the HDD? How is it partitioned? Are you trying to do an in-place upgrade? If you are, it's not the way to go. It would be better to completely wipe the HDD of all partitions, then install Win7 from scratch.
