XP users can upgrade to Windows 7


by David Allen

All those computer users who did not upgrade to Vista for various reasons, or in fact downgraded from Vista to XP because they did not like the new operating system, may find that upgrading to Windows 7 will not be as straight forward as they would like.

Microsoft has confirmed that XP users will be able to buy a licence for the Windows 7 upgrade, but there will some conditions.

The main one is that it must be a clean install, which means that the computer’s hard drive will have to be wiped first.

After this has been wiped Windows 7 can be installed and the user will then have to reinstall all of their programs and data.

However for Vista users the upgrade will be much smoother with an in place upgrade.

This should keep all of the data and programs intact.
