Thank you for that. I am also one who refused to get Vista and stuck with XP. I was kind of worried that XP wouldn't be able to upgrade to this but I ordered it anyway.

I want to install a new larger internal hard drive in my PC & upgrade to windows 7 from XP. Is it worth the $45 dollar difference to buy the full version or should I load XP on the new HD & then the upgrade. I don't mind a little extra headache to save $45 but sometimes it's better to spend the extra bucks for the ease factor. Suggestions, thanks.

I just bought a new computer and had to replace my software (Office, Corel, etc.). I'm using XP. If I buy the full version of Win 7, the Microsoft site says that I will have to reinstall my programs. Can I use the same key since I'm just putting it back on the same computer? I have 3 licenses. Will I use the second one when I reinstall?

You first need to make sure that you have at least 4GB of RAM in your system to run Windows 7 64bit. This is a recommendation by Microsoft. After that, if you have the hard drive space you shouldn't have an issue. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use the upgrade version as I've stated before, the full version is for a new install, as the upgrade is for upgrading your current version of windows.

Cosmo,
I have my key code for Vista Home Premium but no original disks. Do I need the original Vista disks to upgrade to Windows 7 or will my key code alone be sufficient? Also, what are the advantages if any to upgrade to any of the other Windows 7 upgrades?

If you have Vista already installed on your computer, you will not need the key codes or the original disks to upgrade.

If you are doing regular home computing and not any business applications, Home Premium should be good enough. The only hiccup could be if you are trying to run XP only programs which are not compatible with Windows 7, then you need to get Windows 7 Professional which has an XP emulator which will keep those old programs running.

Well you also have to take into account your RAM, I personally recommend at least 3GB minimum for great performance and 4GB to take full advantage of the 64-bit version of Windows 7. If you purchase the full, retail version, I do believe you can install it with the same product key on up to three different computers.
