CHANGING OPERATING SYSTEM: VISTA TO WINDOW7 TRIAL VERSION

I want to try the new window beta operating system. Should I continue to keep the VISTA installed or should I uninstall it? What will happen when the trial period will be over? My lap top came with vista pre-installed, with no vista cd software.
I need your advice, PLEASE.

Keep the old system . Instal the new one leaving the old intact. Thsi is called a dual boot. When you turn it on it will give you the option of which version to run.  When insstall the new OS Beta  it shoudl give you the options of :"Overwrite windows?" Say no.  Then go ahead and install.    As to the question about your existing windows. Ifyou have not the reinstall cd's or the reinstal someone else on your hard driver, and you loose you present windows. You will usually have to purchase either the reinstal cd's or a new windows version.   I myself,of would make sure to have or make them before instaling anything else.

You can install the previous version of Windows - this is Windows XP or you can install the latest version of Windows - this is Windows 7.
You can install a Linux operating system such as Ubuntu or Red Hat

I have bought lenovo 3000 y410 and install window7.but no any audio driver support by this operating system only on lenovo.


You may try installing the audio driver for Windows Vista but of the same bit. For example, if you've installed
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit then try installing the Driver for Windows Vista 32- Bit.

Acer Aspire AM5620A- refuses to load Win7


No win7 is not compatable with ACER at all yet. They only way to upgrade is to get a good copy from best buy. The win7 beta is for desk tops (ibm, HP and dell). This is the same thing that happened when win XP came out.

I need to use windows server 2003 R64 bit as the operating system on the laptop


Hi there.
Sorry but Windows server 2003 relies on XP drivers, your laptop only supports Vista so the drivers will not work.
You can however test Server 2008 which will take Vista drivers, download and test it here >>>>>>

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.

I can't to install Windows vista 64 bit within a 32 bit


hi,
If you have a 32-bit version of Windows XP and want to install a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you must boot the computer from the 64-bit Windows Vista DVD and then perform a custom installation of Windows Vista. Back up data before you start the custom installation.

Win vista


If your equipment is new and has the original operating system installed of factory it does not need activation, only that you have tried to update your operating system to another version of windows vista, in this case you must reinstall the operating system from the secret partition Invoking it with F11 or with Thinkadvantage's button (blue button) in the top part of your keyboard and of this form you leave the equipment as when to extract of the box the first time.

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....
