Can I convert my T9460 from windows Vista to Windows 7

Kamil Anwar :

Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer – My name isXXXXX and I will be assisting you with your question today.

Kamil Anwar :

You should be able to upgrade without any problems to Windows 7.

Kamil Anwar :

However, it is recommended that you run a an Upgrade Adviser to check for any issues before hand.

Kamil Anwar :

Click Here to go to the upgrade advisor page

Kamil Anwar :

Proceed to the download page to download Upgrade Advisor.

Kamil Anwar :

Are you still there?

Customer:

Yes. I just downloaded the advisor.

Kamil Anwar :

Great. Please run it and if it doesn't reports any error then you are ready ;)

Kamil Anwar :

If it does reports any error, then tell me so i can guide with the work around.

Customer:

Well run now.

Kamil Anwar :

Great.

Customer:

HOw it is running. Would you recommend a clear start versus upgrade?

Kamil Anwar :

By clear start do you mean a clean install of Windows 7?

Customer:

yes

Kamil Anwar :

I definitely will recommend clean install.

Customer:

thank you. I believe clean install fixes the problems listed.

Kamil Anwar :

Ensure that you get Windows 7 64 Bit Version

Kamil Anwar :

Steps to take:

1. Back up all your data to an external usb or disk drive.
2. Download www.belarc.com/free_download.html -> Run It -> Save the output to the same usb/disk drive. (To keep record of all software's and licenses)
3. Get the Windows 7 installation disk
4. Perform a clean install, it will give you an option to format which will clean out everything from the system, and prepare it for a clean Windows 7 install.
5. Download your programs again.

Customer:

The processor on the T9460 is 32 bit

Kamil Anwar :

Right, then you will need the 32 bit OS.

Customer:

I believe there is a 32 bit professional version

Kamil Anwar :

Yes but you will not be able to get it from Microsoft.

Customer:
