Yes, this is going to work.
Isn't it so that he can only upgrade to windows 7 home premium?
Today I signed up for the dell windows 7 upgrade program. Gonna run this on my dell laptop and my pc(not a dell). At first I planned to get a windows 7 pro because I completely forgot about the upgrade program.
Also the differences between windows 7 home premium and professional are marginal and it's just stuff I don't need anyway.
Really interested in 7. I wanna see how much better it's gonna since the first public beta. Haven't used it since that time.
cool I want windows 7 home premium
i`m getting win7 for free from Microsoft!!
can I come? I'll bring a hobo with me he needs a shower bad
lol....... not even sure if i`m gonna have one....although i don`t really need an excuse to have a party!!..... ties in quite well with my house warming as i`m just moving!!!
now this is a normal score ^^, before with 2gb ram i had 5.5, now 7.4
let the gaming begin :nerd:
new question do I install my hardware drivers before I use the upgrade to windows7 or after? :help:
After I would say.
k thanks for the help!
I would say after...& I am pretty sure 7 will find the drivers for you.
Thanks to my recent upgrade, I have 6GB RAM and have switched from my trusty XP 32bit to the Win7 beta 64bit (Build 7100). It's definately a lot less clunky than it was with 2GB so I'm pretty happy to keep using it.
Now I have pre-ordered the Win7 Home Prem version and wondering if I can just download the RTM version and install it now and then just activate it when my key arrives?
great question! also do I need to burn windows7 RTM to a dvdR to format my new hard drive? or is it just a upgrade type of thing?:stewpid:
Don't mention that crack again, zomb69. There's no doubt that it is illegal.
I'm currently dual-booting Vista SP2 x64 and 7 RC x64. I have Windows 7 on pre-order.
I'm wondering though if there's any reason to keep Vista once I have the full version of 7? My experiences with both lead me to the conclusion that 7 is just a more streamlined version of Vista with trimmings, kind of like the ultimate Service Pack 3 in effect.
Can I upgrade my copy of Vista to 7 and still keep all my installed software such as games or does installing 7 necessitate a complete new install? If it's the latter then I'd have to continue dual-booting as I have far too much stuff installed to restart again from scratch.
Yes, you can just upgrade Vista to Windows 7, Darren Hodgson:
How To Upgrade Vista To Windows 7
Thanks Cybermancer. I've added that link to my favourites.
Depending on how busy your Vista is, you got a LONG wait.
this is bullzhit... just got a quad core to test it, Q8200 and got 7.3 for CPU and memory, with my E8400 and the same memory got 6.9. but in real gaming the quad core is utter crap.
