Windows 7 Home Premium on Dell Optiflex 760 desktop


This model was released in the Vista era but is not horribly old. I have updated some hardware from XP/Vista to W7.
However Dell does not list W7 as this model predates the OS.

However, microsoft lets you run compatibility tests with the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. See: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20

I would estimate your chances of success as very good - but check the MS Advisor.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

I have one cd with windows vista home premium, and i can not activate him. what can i make ?


You have to have a valid product key to activate it. The product keys usually come packaged in the box with the retail CD. If you don't have the box, then sorry but you will have to either buy another copy or find some other means to obtain a valid vista home premium license key.

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

I accidentally damaged window vista home premium preinstalled on 0768A78(model) L3nh216(SN)note book. It asks me the window product key to bring the window up. Could you provide me the key code for this...


There could well be a sticker on the back of your laptop with the product code on for windows vista. After you have this Vista will need to be activated within 30 days of installing it.

Product key


When you purchased your windows home basic, it should have had its own product key. Check the packaging it came in. That is the key you need to use.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
