Hi there, we bought a pc from pc world and sent off for the windows 7 upgrade. I tried putting in the disc today but it said our computer wasn't listed and that we should download the windows 7 drivers (does anyone know how i find these and what do i download and how do i install windows 7!?
It's an offer a lot of computer manufacturers have right now - buy a qualifying PC running Windows Vista from June something 2009 to January 31st 2010 and receive a free Windows 7 upgrade.
You usually register your product for the upgrade and then manufacturer sends out the Windows 7 Upgrade copy.
It's not one of the two default restore disks that comes with most PC's
Yes. Though they are all put in a folder called Windows.Old along with the users files. So he could go to ROOT\Windows.Old\Program Files and see all the programs he had installed so he'd know which ones to re-install. You can perform a clean install with an upgrade disc though it is a little more complicated then the user would probably want to deal with
