WHAT YOU NEED UPGRADING FROM WINDOWS XP
Upgrading your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 requires a custom installation which doesn't preserve your programs, files, or settings. It's sometimes called a clean installation for that reason.

It's a Windows 7 Pro upgrade. Exactly what was ordered.
Product was as advertised and expected.
Windows 7 Upgrade from Vista Business10/15/2012
Upgrade went very smoothly from Vista Business 32-bit to Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. It asked if I wanted to do an Upgrade or a New Install. The rest was simply answering a few questions.
The Only Real OS Product10/5/2012
Easy to install and setup. Everything went smooth.
Best bang for the buck! Upgraded 3 computers to Windows 7. Perfect installs with a few driver issues from old cards. You can upgrade from your current x86 Vista to 64bit windows 7 OS if you just read the dialog box when you try to install the x64 disk in your current x86 Vista machine. Be aware that this is a total install and you will have to re-install all of your programs so make sure you back up your data, music and photos. Same goes for the Windows XP. CPU/MB & memory has to support 64bit.
Windows 7 is a much needed refinement of Windows Vista. Frankly, I was getting rather tired of all the Windows XP lovers out there, so it was a welcome sight to see Microsoft fix what was a broken product (vista). Even when this OS crashes, the recovery is usually clean and orderly.
Windows 7 arrived OK3/12/2012
Windows 7 upgrade arrived. The package was not damaged. No problems. What is there to say about W7 Pro upgrade? This was the best price I could find.
Windows 7 is the way to go. Alt Tab switching is vastly improved. Easy to use at home or in the office. Windows Updates are easier, quicker, less rebooting. 32 bit or 64 bit, both work perfect. Speaking of annoying Windows features, let's talk about User Account Control--the Windows Vista security element that was a poster child for everything that rankled people about that OS. UAC aimed to prevent rogue software from tampering with your PC by endlessly prompting you to approve running applications or changing settings. The experience was so grating that many users preferred to turn UAC off and take their chances with Internet attackers. Those who left it active risked slipping into the habit of incautiously clicking through every prompt, defeating whatever value the feature might have had. Windows 7 gives you control over UAC, in the form of a slider containing four security settings. As before, you can accept the full-blown UAC or elect to disable it. But you can also tell UAC to notify you only when software changes Windows settings, not when you're tweaking them yourself. And you can instruct it not to perform the abrupt screen-dimming effect that Vista's version uses to grab your attention. If Microsoft had its druthers, all Windows 7 users would use UAC in full-tilt mode: The slider that you use to ratchet back its severity advises you not to do so if you routinely install new software or visit unfamiliar sites, and it warns that disabling the dimming effect is "Not recommended." Speak for yourself, Redmond: I have every intention of recommending the intermediate settings to most people who ask me for advice, since those settings retain most of UAC's theoretical value without driving users bonkers.
for upgrade from xp Pro8/23/2010
pretty easy to get used to... glad I skipped Vista... only a couple compatability problems, but able to run most everything in XP mode if there are issues... a couple of glitches with preferences, but like the free tech support.
Finally Microsoft does something right1/8/2010
While Vista was an ok OS, 7 takes the improvements from Vista and adds a few more. Upgrading from Vista was the easiest upgrade from a Microsoft OS that I have ever experienced. Backed up everything and did a clean install; however, pleasantry surprised that it was not necessary in my case (STILL BACK EVERYTHING UP! Just in case). Only problem I have had is some playback issues with Windows Media Player behaving sluggishly at the start which I didn't have in Vista. Otherwise I would have given it a 5 on performance.
