Upgrading from Vista 64 bit to the new Windows 7.

HP Recommended

Can someone provide me with detailed instructons on how to do a clean install.  I am reading that a clean install is better than an upgrade.  If someone doesnt think so.  Please tell me.  I have the HP Pavilion Elite e9107c PC.  Its only about 1 month old.

After I load the new Windows 7, should I create a new recovery disc. and Do I never use the recovery disk that I created for Vista again.

Hi,

How to Do a Clean Installation with Windows 7 tutorial here.

 

Yes You should make new recovery disks.

This step should be always done after starting to use new system.

 

Microsoft documents about repair and recovery here.

OK, I got my HP Windows 7 upgrade for my Vista 64 system. Upgrade went in clean without any problems. Now I would like to make a Recovery disc either to my original partition or to dvd media. The Recovery Option is not in All Programs as I have already made one set of the Vista 64 system. Is there a way now that I have upgraded to Windows 7 64 that I can make a new Recovery Set for this Windows 7 64 setup???????

 

It seems ridiculous to have to go back to Vista 64 and them reinstall Windows 7 64.
