If you are asking could you upgrade directly from Windowx XP to Windows 7 as a direct upgrade, the answer is yes but it's not recommended.

The much better method is to use Windows Easy Transfer to move your important files from your computer onto an external hard drive. After all your files are backed up safely, it's best to start the Windows 7 install and when you get to the "Upgrade" or "Custom (advanced)" screen to choose Custom. This will open up the drive view. Click on "Drive options (advanced)" which will bring up the ability to delete the partitions.

If you find that you have more than one shaded area in the Drive 0 bar, you have more than one partition. Unless you have experience creating and modifying partitions, only delete the partitions on Disc 0 which are marked Drive (C:). Otherwise, you can decide what partitions you need to delete to make enough room for Windows 7.

I'm not sure if you've already done your homework or not but before you upgrade to Windows 7, run the update advisor to ensure your system and software is Windows 7 ready and make sure to collect the hardware drivers that work with the exact version of Windows 7 you are installing... 32 bit and 64 bit are totally different monsters!!!

Having all of your software install disks on hand, and all your backups (and a bootable copy of the backup software!!) and Windows 7 hardware drivers on an external hard drive is the best way to approach an upgrade.

Best of luck!! Hope this helps.

Acer aspire 5310 Wireless LAN indicator light on windows 7


That sort of comes with a OS upgrade, in upgrades from XP to Win 7, I'm supprised that's the only thing that is a issue. I upgraded a old gateway (2005) from XP to Win 7 Pro N 64bit. and had some hardware issues to deal with. Consider yourself lucky. You can get use to it or search endlessly for a fix. Try the Acer forums, you may run across the issue.

Win 7 will use more resources and make it slower. It is a nice netbook, but still a netbook. Plus you need to consider drivers for, LAN, sound, and video.

Try testing with Win 7 advisor,

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

Can i update window 7 ? now i hv window XP is there any effect of my files available in system during downloading wndow7


Windows 7 does not allow an upgrade from Windows XP. You would have to upgrade to Vista first and then on to 7. Also, it depends on which Vista you have that will determine which Windows 7 you can upgrade to. If you have Vista Home basic for instance, you cannot upgrade to Windows 7 Premium or professional. It is really screwed up. You can however do a clean install but you will lose all your old files unless you back them up on an external drive before running the new OS.

Replace the Vista Home Premium with XP on ASPIRE M1202


Your best option is to upgrade to Windows 7. It is free for (I believe all) Vista users, and you can run programs in XP compatibility mode.
