You don't. That doesn't make any sense; you can format a drive or RAID array, but not the whole PC. After all, you can rebore an engine's cylinders, but not the whole car. What are you actually trying to accomplish?

I want to upgade my Compaq Presario SR2150NX PC Desktop from Vista to Windows 7. Can this be done? What precautions to I need to take before proceeding?


Hi,

Yes of course you can upgrade your Vista PC to Windows 7.

The only thing you have to do is back all your wanted files like movies, pics, docs etc to slave or storage drive. Then you can proceed to install Windows 7. Just make sure you install over the Vista partition if you are going to perform a clean install.

If you just want to upgrade and keep your settings just pop the disc in while you are using the Vista machine.

If you need anymore advice please post back.



Regards.

Use the above link , and chat online with a customer service rep, give them your compaq model information along with the correct operating system and they can send you one to your home. Hope this helps. Otherwise just format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again, just make sure you have a good copy of windows xp or vista before you format the hard drive.

Computer will not boot


Chances are if you load the windows CD into the CD player it wil boot to the CD. You can opt to repair the current version of windows without a format. You will not loose your data.
