    Not really. I was only told what I already knew. I still have to phone ASUS to get the final answer to the question.

Hi barbara,

I see that you are wanting to Upgrade from Vista 64 to Win7 64.


You also mentioned that the Upgrade Advisor told you to check with Asus, I guess you may need to since Asus will be able to tell you if they will have all the drivers Needed for your machine to run in Win7 64 bit, Win7 64 bit is a new Operating system and still has issues with drivers for devices such as wirelss card and video cards, also has issue with compatibilty with programs.

I also suggest that you call Asus for further details regarding this concern.

Have a nice day.

Upgrading windows vista 64bit


Did you download your Win7 upgrade or did you buy a boxed copy? If you have a boxed version, check in the box. My Win7 upgrade came with both the 32-bit and the 64-bit DVDs in the box. Try using the other optical disk in the upgrade package. If only one disc is in the package, contact the source where you got the upgrade. Only the package for installing a new OS (OEM or full version) comes with just the one disc included. For those, you need to specify the type of system on ordering.

If you downloaded the upgrade, you will need to get a different upgrade file and burn it to disc or make a USB installer for that version of Windows 7.

To confirm your current version of Windows, click Start and choose the Control Panel. Click on System and Security and then on System. This page will display the Windows version and append x64 if you have the 64-bit version.

Alternatively, download the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor , and it will confirm if your system is compatible with Windows 7 and which version you need.

I hope this helps.

Your CPU does not meet the recommendation for this model video card.

Yeah,
you need installation CD, or bootable usb if your CD rom doesnt work...
Do not forget the drivers, to work your components properly,
use your driver CD's, or this tool: Driver Update

Not sure what happened ,lost parts of my os for vista home premium 64 bit ,no sound, not even beepcodes,no text when atempting restore ,limited control in command promt, still have some stuff ,pictures...


Which do you have - Vista Home Premium or Vista Home Basic? The title of this question category and what you said you have doesn't match. I'll assume you had Home Premium 64 Bit. Yes you can upgrade to Windows 7, 64 Bit. Please be aware that there is the 64 Bit and the 32 Bit versions. Check with your OEM of the computer before you upgrade. In the upgrade process, Windows 7 will create a folder called "windows.old" once the install has completed. There you will find the data you had from the old operating system like pictures and documents. Before you do the upgrade, I recommend downloading and installing the Windows 7 Advisor to check on any software and hardware issues - the advisor will list those problems before you can upgrade so that you can make the corrections.

Excuseme,I don't speak english, but I need the audio driver for motherboard ASUS P4GE-MX for windows 7 32bit. You can answer me in this address e-mail: jose_a85@hotmail.com thanks


Have you checked with ASUS TechSupport? That is a very old System Board and most likley does not support Windows 7 and Asus most likley has no plans to release any. I recommend buying a newer model of system board, which will require newer CPU, RAM and video card to successfully implement Windows 7 and find drivers more easily.

Check this Asus forum post with similar question:

http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20081208025209781&board_id=1&model=P4GE-MX&page=1&SLanguage=en-us

Also not sure if you tried running the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before you upgraded.

http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/windows-7/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx

it most likely would have advised against installing Windows 7 on the current system and recommended what you would need to upgrade first.

Good Luck!
