* It is not necessary to back up ur data. U can simply run the Windows 7 upgrade, it will not delete ur files and folders. It will only replace the windows and system files.

** If u want to back up ur data then simply copy ur all data to another partition except C drive (System Drive) and then install a fresh copy of windows 7 and by format only c partition.

*** If there is only a single partition, then simply copy all your necessary data to CD/DVD aur pen drive aur any external hard drive and install a fresh copy.

**** U can also use Partition Magic to make two partition by cutting some space from C drive in case of only one partition.

How to format my laptop


Normal 0

To format the hard disk and re-install Windows use the Windows installation CD, and the Windows Product Code on the label at the bottom of your laptop.

Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow the instructions.

One of the installation early steps, the option to delete the existing partition, then create a new partition and then a full format on this partition (don't do a quick format) and complete the Windows installation.

Next install all of the Toshiba's computer/laptop device drives.

Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 for XP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista)

Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone.

Next install your programs - Microsoft Office etc.
Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for the latest updates).

How to install windows 7 operating system


To Install the Windows 7 Operating System (Win 7 OS):

Instructions for a "Clean/New Windows 7 Installation:

AFTER BACKING ALL YOUR DATA THAT YOU DON"T WANT TO LOSE, Do the Following :

1) Insert your Genuine Windows 7 System Disc (Retail or OEM System Installation Disc).

2) Close down all programs and restart your computer.

3) As soon as the computer restarts, you should see a prompt that says something like this: "Press any key to boot from cd/dvd"

....So press any key!... This will boot to the installation disc and prepare for installation or repair (we are going to be installing windows, so ignore the repair options you see on the screen).

*If you don't press a key in time, you will see that the computer will attempt to boot from the hard disc drive instead... if that happens, restart the computer and press a key when prompted.

4) Depending on your particular Windows Version, you will see a prompt that says something about "Do you accept the license terms?" Click "Yes" or "I accept", etc.. and continue on...

5) Choos Custom or Advanced Settings (the other option is for an upgrade..)

6)Select the desired hard disc drive, (HDD aka Hard Drive), Select "Drive Options", and follow the onscreen instructions "Delete the partitions" (Do not Leave another windows installation on the same hard disc drive, unless you are experienced and know how to "dual-boot" properly!) Delete the Partitions.

7) Now choose to install windows (be sure to select the newly deleted empty (unformatted) partition. Windows 7 will automatically format the drive for you and will begin to install windows 7. Follow the onscreen instructions and within a half an hour or less (depending on your hardware) you will be finished, just be sure not to leave the computer unattended while performing a windows installation, since it requires your input quite often to proceed.

That's pretty much all there is to it!.. if you have any more trouble...
Google it or Bing it.... Search Engines are awesome!.... Enjoy!





*NOTE- If your windows 7 disc is a "Upgrade" disc, then you must perform an upgrade while running your previous/older windows version, since Windos Upgrade Discs aren't bootable, they simply patch the older version, replace system files, etc... to transform the previous windows installation into the target/newer version. If you want to perform a clean install, be sure you own a Windows 7 Installation / System Startup Disc.
