It depends. Assuming the machine is running XP now, do you want to keep anything on it, or are you fine with starting over? Also, what are the specifications (CPU, memory (RAM,) hard drive size and free space) on the machine?

If it's currently running XP, you probably have less than 4 Gb RAM and are running a 32 bit version. (Check by right clicking "My computer" and bringing up properties.) If you *really* don't know, most Dells have an Express Service Code on a tag on the machine - you can use that, paste it in on Dell's support site, and get the information from there.

The *best* way to do this, which will give the fewest problems and give the best experience, is to not upgrade but format the drive and just start cleanly. You should have the option to do this when you put the WIndows 7 DVD in and boot the machine. Be sure to save any data (documents, pictures and the like) from the current installation first, either onto disk or online services like Google Drive, MS Onedrive and the like. You *will* need to reinstall your programs, however.

SOURCE: tried to install a used 20gb working hard drive

Hi I'm Rain.
The problem is that you have to diffrent system models. When Windows is booting up for the first time it loads the neccesary Drivers for the system model. You will have to obtain the Windows disk and do a system repair or a full Clean install .
This will load all the drivers for your system model.
You can try rebooting and hitting F8 to get to advanced settings.in Advanced settings select Last known good configuration.
If this fail . The configuration is wrong and Windows won't boot.

SOURCE: Well i have a dell optiplex gx260 desktop pc for

Unfortunately, Dell doesn't support Windows 7 for the OptiPlex GX260. You could try an older driver and see if it will work, but you can't get any Windows 7 drivers for the GX260. (At least not yet.)

You can view a list of Dell computers that are Windows 7-compatible here:

You will have to completely un-install Windows 7 and install Windows XP. I do not understand why you would want to....but, that's your perogative. Windows 7 will run about anything that was put out before it....including XP based programs

For Windows XP drivers, the last supported through Dell, try one of the three listed here:
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/product/optiplex-sx280

Change the Operating System to "MS Windows XP" and the Category to "Video".

This discussion suggests that Windows Update will get you working drivers after a Windows 7 install:

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.
