Hello

Yes, you can certainly do that. Just to clarify if i understand you correctly, you want to upgrade from windows vista to windows 7, but you want to do a clean install, not a upgrade?

Here is how you do it, just click on the link and you will be directed to a page which shows you exactly how to do it.

I suggest not, most of the drivers that you have are still not supported by windows 7, there might some hardware that might not work (USB port, Camera, CD/DVD rom)

Just installed windows 10 from Windows 7 but I don't know if I can get 64 bit?


It depends on the processor on your motherboard. Normally an upgrade will detect it automatically.

Upgrading windows xp to windows 7 or do i have to upgrade to vista first


You cannot upgrade xp to win 7 because the kernels are so different. You can upgrade from vista to win 7. Just do a clean install of windows 7.

Make sure you have all your data backed up
Also make sure you have your re installation disk and proper cd keys to perform a clean install.

power your unit - press F9 for boot options - insert your 7 disk into cd rom and choose boot from CD-ROM. Follow instructions provided from install disk.

Hi, im trying to install windows 7 ultimate onto my gateway. I bought it retail from best buy and am having problem with the install... is it factory set for me not to be able to install an operating...


If you bought a full retail version and not an upgrade, you may need to do a fresh installation of windows. You also need to make certain that your gateway model is able to upgrade to windows 7. Checking your computer's support page, there are no BIOS updates available. Your computer should be fully capable of upgrading to windows 7 from windows Vista. ALso looking at Gateway's support page for this model, there are no drivers offered for Windows 7. All drivers offered are for windows Vista. I have seen computers in the past that will not tolerate an operating system change from the system that was installed at the factory.

If you have a restore partition, you can back up your data, and do a clean install of windows after formatting your hard drive. You may also want to make recovery disks for your computer in case the Win 7 will take on your computer or you cannot get your hardware to work with Win 7 since Gateway offers no Win 7 drivers.
Good luck. Take precautions to back up data and be able to revert to your original factory settings if necessary.

AFTER INSTALLATION THERE'S NO SOUND in windows seven


Did you run the windows 7 upgrade advisor before upgrading to win 7?
I am asking you this because in most of the cases when the drivers are not available in win 7 then that wizard helps you knowing it. You might have to reinstall the drivers once again because the drivers are not installed automatically in win 7 installation, they need to be installed explicitly.

Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

Trouble updgrading to Windows 7


All is fine up to that point into the setup because it's generic up to that point. The chipset on the motherboard is not supported by windows 7 at this point. It is not the harddrive that's not compatible but is the chipset in the board that supports the operation of the drive. The compatibility wizard is causing all kinds of problem for MS. It could just be one little chip in the board that is hanging up your install. There are many topics if you Google Windows 7 forced install. People are saying some forced installs are working and some are not. Good luck
