One possible cause of the "out of memory" issue is because you have large stills in your sequence. If you have stills that exceed 4000 pixels you are likely to get an out of memory error.

If that is the case just reduce the size of the stills and you should find the memory error goes away.

This wont help with the OS upgrade issue however - I am not sure what that problem might be.

best wishes

Thank u very much u maybe right because this particular project im trying to render has more than 10 stills and i didnt pay attention to the resolution i will look into that and i will let you know if reducing the resolution of the still images solves the problem . About the OS installation im trying to install it from a flash drive the I restarted the computer, presed the C key and the installers launches fine but when i choose a clean install it tells me that i can upgrade to this os :-( maybe that helps! again thanks
