Solved Upgrade to Vista

Post by jimclark1947 on Sun 11 Oct 2009, 7:58 am

I am currently running XP and would like to upgrade to Vista. I have only installed operating systems before when adding a new hard drive so I would like to know what is involved if I just want to install the new operating system.

Will I have to reinstall any of my programs if I do this?

What sort of problems might I expect?

Using an upgrade...no data loss. It is recommended, however, to back up your data. Would you like to know how to do this?

Problems, are just performance issues, if you do not have the appropriate system requirements.
