Thank you for the details.I will check the compatibility now in the mean time please read the following regarding your questions.Before you do windows 7 installation i suggest you back up the files you needed to a external hard drive or to a cloud based back up (Do this only if you have a high speed internet connection)The reason why i suggested to do back up is that in order to do clean install of windows 7 you need to format the C drive then need to install windows 7 on it.Here is a link which shows how to do clean install of windows 7 : - http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1649-clean-install-windows-7-a.htmlTo start windows 7 installation you need to boot from the windows 7 installation disc to do that turn on the computer then press F12 repeatedly when you see the HP start-up screen that will show the boot options from that select CD/DVD drive and press enter that will boot from windows 7 disc.Then it will show a message to press any key to boot from CD or DVD ... immediately press any key on the keyboard rest of the installation process is described in the web link i provided above.To answer your question regarding warranty.No changing the operating system in your computer wont void the warranty of the hardware on the computer.Let me know if you have any doubts.Sincerely,John

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
