If you have downloaded a copy of Win 7, it will probably be an image file (ISO).
You burn the disc as an image, use free Imgburn.
This will now be bootable.
You will need to enable booting from cd/dvd first in the bios ( boot order)

How to uninstall windows 7


Step 1:
Delete Windows 7 b> Released in October 2009, Windows 7 is the most recent Microsoft Operating system (as of September 2010). It offers several advances over previous versions of windows, including improved media functions and networking. Windows 7 is not for everyone, however, and there are instances in which someone may wish to remove Windows 7 in favor of an earlier version. There are three ways to delete Windows 7, and the method you use depends on how it was originally installed.

b>Back up the data on your computer. Go to the Windows Start Menu. Select "Computer" and right-click on the "C" drive. Left-click on "Properties" and write down the amount of free space on your drive. Close out of the "C" drive properties and go to the Windows Start Menu. Type "Windows.old" in the "Search Programs and Files" box. If the "Windows.old" folder does not exist, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." Right-click the Windows.old folder, left-click on "Properties" and look at the of the folder. Compare the of the folder with the amount of free space on your drive you wrote down in Step 2. The Windows.old folder contains compressed files; if the folder is more than two times the of the amount of free space on your drive, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." For example: If you only have 10GB of free space on your C drive and the Windows.old file is 22GB large, when it expands it may use up the remaining 10GB and then some. Insert the Windows 7 installation disc and reboot your machine. Select the option to boot from CD/DVD when prompted. Set the language, time and location-specific settings and click "Next." Select "Repair Your Computer" from the list of installation options. Select your version of Windows 7 and click "Next." Click "Command Prompt" to open the command prompt window. Type the following commands, and hit the "Enter" key after each: C: Md Win7 Move Windows Win7\Windows Move "Program Files" "Win7\Program Files" Move Users Win7\Users Attrib --h --s --r ProgramData Move ProgramData Win7\ProgramData Rd "Documents and Settings" Type the following commands and hit the "Enter" key after each: move /y c:\Windows.old\Windows c:\ move /y "c:\Windows.old\Program Files" c:\ move /y c:\Windows.old\ProgramData c:\ move /y c:\Windows.old\Users c:\ move /y "c:\Windows.old\Documents and Settings" c Restore the boot sector for the earlier version of Windows with one of the following commands: For Vista, type: D:\boot\bootsect /nt52 c: For Windows XP or Windows 2000, type: D:\boot\bootsect /nt60 c: Type the following commands and hit the "Enter" key after each command: Attrib --h --s --r boot.ini.saved Copy boot.ini.saved boot.ini Close the Command Prompt window and reboot your computer. b> Remove Windows 7 From a Multi-Boot System Boot your computer to the Non-Windows 7 Operating system and back up your data. Go to the Windows Start Menu, select "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Select "Administrative Tools" and double-click "Computer Management." Enter your Administrator Password if prompted. Click "Storage" on the left and select "Disk Management." Locate the drive or partition that is running the Windows 7 operating system. If you have both operating systems on the same partition, skip the rest of this section and go to the section titled "Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System." Right-click on the Windows 7 partition, click "Format" or "Delete" to remove Windows 7 from that partition. Click "OK" and reboot your computer. b> Remove Windows 7 from a Computer with No Previous Operating System Back up the data on your hard drive and insert the desired Windows installation disk, such as Windows Vista or Windows XP. Reboot your machine and select the option to boot from CD/DVD. Press "Enter" to start the installation process. Hit F8 to agree to the "Microsoft Software License Terms" and select the option to install a new version of the software. Select the C: drive and highlight the option to format and partition the drive. Press the "Enter" key. Follow the on-screen prompts to install Windows. The computer may reboot several times during the installation process. Enter your product key when prompted.

Is this computer able to dual boot win 7 and xp


Which version of xp are you trying to install 32 or 64 bit ?

Your ability to install a second operating system on your Windows 7 system hinges on one thing: partitions. If your computer has only one partition, you can't dual-boot your system without erasing all information on your computer. Two hard drives, or two partitions, enables you to dual boot. Check this information first, before proceeding.

Click "Start" and type "disk management" into the search bar. Click on "Create and format hard disk partitions" in the list of programs to open "Disk Management." Look at the list of partitions and available drives. The information here will be different on every computer. "C" is your primary hard drive and active operating system partition, and this drive contains your Windows 7 installation. You can't install Windows XP here without formatting the system. Check for secondary drives and partitions in Disk Management. Your system may have a "D" or "E" drive. Some computer manufacturers create a hidden partition with recovery software: don't remove this partition. If you have a secondary partition called "D" with more than 2GB of free space, you can install Windows XP here. b> Installing XP b> Insert the Windows XP Setup disc into your CD or DVD drive and close any windows that appear. Shut down your computer with the disc in the drive. Turn the computer on and look for a message saying "press any key to book from CD." Press any key on your keyboard when this message appears. Most computers are configured to look to the CD or DVD drive first, before booting to the operating system. If your system doesn't recognize the disc, you will have to enter your BIOS and change the boot order. Look to your manual for information on changing the boot order. Press "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen to load the Windows XP setup program. Read the license agreement and press "F8" to accept. Windows will detect that an operating system is already installed on your primary partition and present a list of other partitions to install XP. Use the arrow keys to select your secondary partition ("D") and press "Enter" to confirm that you want to install XP here. Then choose what to do with the partition: leave the file system intact or format the partition using FAT32 or NTFS. Windows XP supports both file systems, but requires NTFS on partitions larger than 32GB. You don't need to format the drive to install XP. Follow the prompts on screen to enter your personal information, serial number, and date and time. The setup program copies files to your PC and reboots -- don't press a key to boot to the CD. When you have to operating systems installed, a DOS screen appears asking you to choose an OS; press the down arrow key to highlight Windows XP and press enter to complete the setup. You will have to choose this every time to boot into XP, otherwise your computer will boot to Windows 7 by default. Hope this helps.

Hi.

The "tfght" message means that some of the files, folders and sub folders are compressed.
Boot the Windows 7 DVD, choose Custom install, on "Where do you want to install Windows" screen, click on Load Driver. Now use the mini-explorer which pops up to rightclick on System HD then choose Properties. Uncheck "Compress Drive to save Disk Space" for All Files and Sub-Folders. Restart.
That should solve the problem.
However you may have to start again. Click on the link below for an in-depth guide on how to dual boot XP and Windows 7.

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

Going from 64 bit to 32 bit on Windows 7


Hello,

Ill make a big assumption here : On the bottom of your laptop there is a license key - That Key will tell you which kind of opertaing system you'll have on the hidden partition and it just might say 32bit or 64bit.

Nevertheless, disregard the top part here if it does not. Restart your Laptop, keep pressing ALT and F10 together continuously after the Acer Logo until it says somemething like "Windows is loading files". It should then give you onscreen instructions - and it might just also give you the option to choose which operating system type (32/64) you want.

On another model or also others, the Recovery DVD's that come with the laptop contain this option i know for sure. When pressing F12 on startup, (if the F12 boot menu is ENABLED under "advanced tab" in the BIOS) you can choose a device to boot up from ; Choose the DVD drive and boot from your recovery DVD - When it's done loading, you should be able to choose the operating system you would like to restore on your laptop.

Last but not least, if you have a Windows 7 Installation Disk, it will prompt you for choosing 32bit or 64 bit respectively. If you have lost the original recovery DVD's, you can request them from Acer.
