SEVERE ERROR in BW upgrade



I'm trying to update BW 3.5 to Netweaver 7.0 EHP2 and I'm having the following issue when I put the path of the mount DVD:

SEVERE ERROR: PI_BASIS is in an undefined state,
that is not safe to be upgraded !!!
Reason: Upgrade wasn't completed
Call the SAP Support!!!

Log error:

I only added the path of the upgrade DVD for Netweaver 7.0 EHP, the kernel DVD unicode, the languages and the NW 7.0 EhP2 Add-On Upgrade DVD.

This are the Release and SP that I have right now in the system:

I try to verify the notes 1175848 and 158358 but the marketplace show me this message so I can't verify it...":

u201DThe requested SAP Note is either in reworking or is released internally onlyu201D

I try to stop the upgrade, application and erase all in the upg directory to begin again but the issue is not resolved...

Thanks for the help!!
