hi, i am having no luck with getting my desktop freezing so i want to do a clean install of win 7, it is an upgrade from vista, can i just use the win 7 update disk or will i have to do it from vista?thanks
Check THIS tutorial out and especially the 'Related Tutorials' at the foot of the first post there.
First with your upgrade disk you will need to reboot back to the manufacture vista settings and then reboot and then use the win7 upgrade disk to go from vista to win7. Doing this should avoid alot of pitfalls people do by just upgrading and not realizing they upgraded with the system problems in hand rather then reboot to clean O/S then upgrade to avoid problems.
have done my install but i have a few problems, i cant upload my lightroom software it says to check the validity of the software and wont open? also i dont have any sound, i have installed new drivers etc i cant play a cd or listen through the headphones?i am getting fed up :(:a
Well what version of vista do you have and what version of w7 do you have?? And what computer model and make do you have as well and any changes you made since you bought or built it? Otherwise you might have to invest in a full version of W7 Pro or Ult not lower then pro cause you won't have all the feature or settings you will need. I have W7x64 ult and it runs fine but do have problem from time to time with XP programs as 7 doesn't like xp programs much.
