Hi,

 

To rectify the issue, do some basic checks:

1. Disable any Antivirus software before attempting to upgrade.

2. Disconnect any external devices before installing.

3. Check the hard disk for any errors.

4. Also make sure if Windows 2008 SP2 has necessary disk space and memory requirements.
