  Description  
     
 

Windows does not allow an older version of Windows to be installed on top of a newer version (and keep the settings and data). This typically occurs when you apply a new service pack via the Internet, and then try to use the installation media from the original installation.

Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.

Warning: If you decide to delete the newer version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer, the files and settings cannot be recovered.
