You are unable to upgrade for Windows XP to 7, you have to do a fresh install which involves a format which will mean you will lose all of your data unless you back it up

if you are running Vista you cannot upgrade from Vista 64bit to 7 32bit, again you have to do a fresh install


to do a fresh install insert the Windows disc and reboot your computer, make sure your computer has it's boot priority set to
1. DVD Drive
2. HDD

and if that's done correctly just follow the prompts to install windows.

First boot of Win 7. New PC build


Hi.

First of all when you are in the BIOS and have set the DVD/CD drive as the first boot device make sure you save the settings before you restart the computer as it will not remember the changes if you don't.

Make sure that the lens on the CD/DVD drive is clean and also make sure the Windows 7 install disk is clean and free of any finger prints.

make sure that you keep tapping a key when the drive spins up as sometimes people miss the "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD" message.

If you still can't get the disk to boot then try the install disk in a working PC and see if that reads the disk. If it does then the optical drive could be faulty or does not support DVD format.


Regards.

I have Vista OS on my laptop & have never been able to get automatic updates to work. I have had nothing but problems with this OS & want to instal Win 7 but I am told I can't do that until I see...


Don't worry about "compatibility" issues. You can pretty much force Win 7 onto just about any laptop.

What you need to do is backup your files (that is if you have any you want saved)

You need to do a CLEAN install, not the UPGRADE when you boot from the Windows 7 cd.

Delete ALL of the partitions...then hit NEXT.

When it's done installing, run the updates and if you're missing any drivers after the updates post back the model of your laptop / desktop and we'll help you patch the missing ones.

Best of luck!

Check that you are running in compatable mode. Since Windows 7 is so new not all programs run properly so you should have a link to run the program in a compatable stage. If not check and make sure your program is compatable with Windows 7. You may have to reinstall the program and you will probably get a message to install in a compatable mode. If you do make sure you install in that mode then the program should work. Windows 7 is like when they first came out with Windows Vista there are a few bugs that they are still working out and that is probably what is causing the problem.
