Suggest you not upgrade to windows 7 at this time. Too many incompatibility issues. I have attempted to help clients with this upgrade and it is a disaster. I suggest you wait until drivers for all your peripherals are available before you upgrade. It is always not a good ideal to not upgrade until all the devices that are attached are updated to work with Windows 7.
BTW I'm not impressed with windows 7.
Just my opinion.
Good day all.

I bought this desktop - HP Pavilion a6665d Desktop PC - a while ago which is running Vista 32 and wondering if I can upgrade it to Win7 32 or Win7 64 ?

I have had problems with the upgrade as well, HP is not moving , they are more concerned on selling the computer with windows 7 on them and don't seem to care about the promise they made for the free upgrade that really isn't free .
They should take back all the vista machines they sold on the promise they are not keeping , I was told I would get the upgrade October 22nd now that the date has come and gone they have no Idea when it is going to be released to the people that purchased computer on the promise.
HP needs to honor their promise before they sell more computer and should offer the disks right away we do not deserve to be put on the back burner . Or HP should take the machines back . My vista Machine is useless it is a paper weight , I cant get my printer to work on it and half my programs will not work, so I just put it away until HP come clean on its promise of windows 7 upgrade and Hope it works.
I do not have a good feeling about this I think Windows 7 is going to known as ( Vista II ) I did go out and purchase a new desk top with (windows 7) on it it did not work any better than Vista , my printer did not work , my scanner did not work and my back up drive did not work .I tried installing some software and that didnt work either , Carbinite Backup didn't work . I returned the desktop today . Windows 7 has way too many bugs to buy at this point .
