Last week, I went a head and installed 7; after backing up my data files and was set for the move. The installation appeared to have went smoothly. I chose to install via the downloadable file; as I am waiting for the backup media that will arive by Monday. After installing Windows 7 over XP Pro SP3, I ran into a minor difficulty. Thankfully, my ATI driver was still on my C:. The same goes for the old programs that I chose to not re install. It seems Windows 7 simply did an upgrade rather than a clean install. Isn't this what's supposed to happen? I was originally going to ask, "Dods it make sense to still do a clean install?" I'd still like to know. My system now has a more updated graphic card (GeoForce 6200) PCI and is working like a beaut! I'd appreciate any input on this. Thanks in advance!
