More than likely there is a second partition on your hard drive that contains all of the recovery files/information that the "one key recovery" accesses. If you install Windows 7 and it does not over write the recovery partition, you MAY be able to use the One Key to go back to your original operating system. If Windows 7 over writes the recovery partition, you will have to do a complete install from scratch in order to go back to the original set up.

Best solution would be to purchase a second hard drive and install Win 7 on it. That way, if you want to revert to the old system (or just recover files from it) all you have to do is switch out the hard drives.

Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only upgrade to a 64-bit version ofWindows 7. Otherwise, you'll need to use the Custom option to install Windows 7.

Upgrading to windows 7


When you first boot from the win 7 disc there is a option to format or delete a partition.Do both.This will erase all vista information and allow only win7 to be installed.

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!

My lenovo ideapad Y510 is not able to start windows vista which was preloaded into it when purchased.as soon as it is switched on, fan start running and it gets shut down after sometime without starting...


This sounds like a problem with the operating system. The best way I know to fix this is to wipe the old operating system off and install windows 7 with a full install disc.

Windows 7 Home Premium is more stable and faster than Vista ever was, but will cost $199.99 or so for the full version, or if it's possible to install with the upgrade, $119.99 or so from Microsoft.com.

If your Vista could be started, you could theoretically go to the recovery console and 'recover' it or go to help-> restore and restore to an earlier date where the computer wasn't malfunctioning. However, these options aren't available if you cannot even start windows.

I have a Lenovo Y550…before upgrading from Vista (64bit) to Window 7; the Windows upgrade advisor recommended I uninstall OneKey Recovery 6.0 because it wasn’t compatible with windows 7, so I did. After...


I think i know what happened. Windows Upgrade Advisor by the name itself it means that there has to be an older version present on teh system to be UPGRADED. Have you tried installing WIN7 with OKR v6.0 then downloading OKR v7.0 try not uninstalling the OKR v6.0

>I chose not to charge you for rhis since this is more of a suggestion than a resolution... i would like to know what happened after trying this, i would greatly appreciate your comment on this, thanks!

Update to windows 7 on Gateway M-1624 Notebook with vista


You can upgrade to windows 7 from Vista is pretty straight forward. All you have to do is put Windows 7 CD in while running Vista and automatic startup should show you options to choose. There's some trouble with it sometimes for example, you can't upgrade a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version, or upgrade from a higher edition of Windows, such as Windows Vista Ultimate, to a lower edition, such asWindows 7 Home Premium. If this is the case, you'll need to use the Custom option during installation. Please remember that while Upgrading will keep all of your files and programs, custom installation will NOT. So you would need to back everything up before you start. Before you install Windows 7 make sure that all of programs that you need will work on it. For more information visit this microsoft website dedicated to upgrading to windows 7 >> http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/help/upgrading-from-windows-vista-to-windows-7 Have a nice day and good luck.

My Acer aspire x3200 Home Premium will not let me upgrade to windows 7 home premium.Installation failed.


Sometimes you're better off to uninstall the old OS, and then install the upgrade. If you have files to save, store them on removable media, then format the drive, then install the upgrade. During the process, it will ask for the VISTA product key, and the windows 7 product key
