How do you replace Windows 7 with Windows Vista?
what in gods name would posses you to commit such an act of stupidity!?! If you must you will need to boot the PC with a Vista install disk in the DVD drive, make sure CD/DVD drive is listed above HDD in BIOS and boot from CD. When the setup runs you will be able to format the HDD and install Vista fresh - caution formating the HDD will erase ALL data inc. programs, files etc.

In my opinion, no it is not, the Beta expires on August 2009, the RC expires on July, 2010, however, if you plan to purchase Windows 7, I highly recommend upgrade as Windows 7 has passed several benchmarks showing that it is faster and performs better than it's predecessors.
Windows 7 doesn't really compare to Windows Vista. However, Windows 7 is way better than Windows Vista, because it doesn't have any bugs, viruses, malware, spyware, etc. and it is much, much faster.
Yes Windows 7 has far less crashes and way more features. Both for personalization and for security.
I would say Windows 7. Normally i would say it's what suits you but in this case, know for a fact that Windows 7 is much less frustrating than Vista. It doesn't crash (as much), its much faster, better UI, comes with more updated preloaded software. Its just better in total. Believe me. Google it … Most of the compatibility issues are easier to solve and believe me its more compatible than vista can ever be. And I think... it uses the less system resources when compare to the windows Vista by..Rags :) Ehem... NO it is windows vista. All the way, windows 7 is more complicated and windows vista has been my life. (MORE)
Windows 7 has surpassed Windows Vista as well as XP in various benchmarks. See related links.
Windows 7: . is a lot faster and has higher performance than Vista. . has Touchscreen and multi-touch input . has a new taskbar, which is slightly larger, and has a nice 'jump menu' when you right click the taskbar icons. . has a lot more 'fat' removed, taking up less space on your hard driv…e. . 'Aero Peek' turns your windows invisible (when you mouseover another program on taskbar or show desktop) . has a simple devices page which you can use to handle all of your peripherals in one place. . has fewer User Access Control warnings . Updated tools (mspaint, calculator, etc). . Windows 7 has more speed, since it uses much less resources. I also find it that its compatible with more things than vista was. Some games I played on Vista, are working even better on Windows 7. . The gaming experience is better on Windows 7. . Vista and Windows 7 are very much alike, but you will find Windows 7 has a lot of fixes for the bugs Windows Vista has, and the resource use is much less, making your Operating system even more efficient. . Windows 7 is even more organized, since it uses little tabs at the bottom to organize your open windows, this is very helpful if you usually have a great amount of windows open most of the time. makes it a lot better, because you will not have a crowded task bar anymore. . Windows 7 stops responding a lot less than Windows Vista. . Windows 7 basically took the speed and efficiency of Windows XP, and then took the awesome look of Windows 7, put those two things together, and created Windows 7. It also took the indexing idea of Windows Vista, so you can use the Start Search bar to always find what you are looking for. Windows Vista: . is much cheaper than Windows 7 . has the best version Windows Movie Maker (v6.0), which isn't available for Windows 7 (only v2.6 is) . has a little more compatibility with outdated programs (but it is a very tiny difference) Microsoft has published a paper comparing the various features and outlining the differences between Windows XP SP3, Vista SP1 and Windows 7. The PDF file can be downloaded from Microsoft's website. (MORE)
Windows Vista is an operating system, not an application. It does not run "on" Windows 7 so it cannot be said to be "compatible" with it. Drivers and applications written for Windows Vista will continue to work on Windows 7. The reverse may not necessarily be true. Vista and 7 use the same kern…el, so there shouldn't be anything that doesn't work on 7 that works on Vista, but compatibility mode should fix most problems you would have. (MORE)
No Windows Vista was introduced in 2006 and . Windows 7 was released in 2009. They both, however, run on the same kernel. so they are very compatible with each other.
If you select 'Upgrade', it only replaces system files, keeping your personal data/files/downloads. It is probably recommended to install a clean copy, though.
Much better ! It's dramatically more stable than vista ever was, and is much more user friendly.
It depends on your computer hardware and the service pack you have installed with Windows Vista. Try running Windows 7 Upgrade adviser (see link in 'Related links' further down the page.) Yes, but make sure your PC meets these requirements: . 1 GHz processor (32- or 64-bit) . 1 GB of RAM (32-bit);… 2 GB of RAM (64-bit) . 16 GB of available disk space (32-bit); 20 GB of available disk space (64-bit) . DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver (MORE)
No. Windows 7 is based upon Windows Vista but includes newfeatures, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.
window 7 is the primary source of the window can search any wedsite. Then the visa is the source of the window 7.
No. It does cost to upgrade from either. Prices are currently expensive (depending on where you live too) but are expected to drop significantly in the next few months. Hope this helps :D
Of course, backup all your files to an external hard drive andperform a clean install with your Vista disk. They only make iteasy to upgrade never downgrade. If you do not have an externalhard drive, create a disk partition to use as your file backup.
Windows computers are made to communicate with each other as long as they are on the same internet Network. You could have Windows XP communicate with Windows Vista and Windows Vista communicate with Windows 7. They will all talk with each other and you should have no problems aslong as your Network… is properly setup and they are all on the same network. Once they are connected, turning on File or Folder Sharing will give you access on your Windows 7 to your Windows Vista or the other way around. (MORE)
Generally, Windows 7 is faster than Windows Vista. This is partly through a process of analysis of code to look for bottlenecks between Vista and 7 and improved memory management of screen Windows in 7.
Since that is an opinionated question i am assuming you want someopinions why vista is worse than 7. First, vista is not as user-friendly. Second, the windows sidebar(or "gadgets") use a lot of electricity, so a laptop battery didnot last long with it enabled. Third, windows 7 has superior speed.Fou…rth, 7 has a much cleaner, less cluttered interface than vista.Fifth, windows 7 is much more stable than vista. And finally, thereis a good reason that they gave up on vista and made windows 7. Anysimple Google search will tell you that. (MORE)
You have to run the windows 7 upgrade advisor and fix any problems that it says and if you re OK then put the disk in and install windows 7 or go to the store and buy a copy... You can find windows 7 upgrade advisor at the Microsoft website
Hopefully, you bought additional memory and hard drive space whenyou purchased your Vista machine. The basic requirements forWindows 7 are shown below, but remember these are minimums. Theprograms may run slowly and will document refresh may be affected.Be sure to copy all of your documents to exter…nal drives or CDsbefore beginning the process. If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it requires: â¢1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor â¢1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit) â¢16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) â¢DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver (MORE)
Well in short it takes less memory(RAM) to run it, and in my own opinion, it is a lot better looking and faster.
Windows Vista is an awful piece of software. It's slow and hadnumerous development problems. Microsoft did a terrible job... (Igot a Mac Book because I was so mad) Windows 7 is a greatimprovement! It runs more like a real Windows computer should! Soin conclusion, Vista = garbage and Windows 7 = The …God of Microsoftoperating systems. (MORE)
There are many new additions to Windows 7, including: -Jumplists -Built-in ISO burner -Customization of Notification Area -XP Mode (Not just compatibility view) -Improved touch/touchscreen capability -Record steps of your problem to send to someone with the "Problem Steps Recorder" -Magnifier -Bet…ter MP3 Previewing -Action Center -Abillity to pin whatever you want to the taskbar -Improved Taskbar Previews (Better previews of your open windows in your taskbar) -Snapping windows into place -"Homegroup" (Makes it much easier to network things over multiple PCs, it is now simple for someone to pick their files to share over their Windows network) (MORE)
If there are some programs you need to run that require the upgrade then sure. But on my 2 home computers, one has Vista the other has XP. I do not plan on getting 7 anytime soon. I have nothing against it. But it seems to be more of a money grab by Microsoft than anything else.
Windows Live Mail is the mail client Windows offers. However, in Windows 7 you will first need to download Windows Live first. It is free, and can directly be downloaded from Microsoft's website. It will come with other software as well, but Windows Mail will be included.
all you have to do is insert the disc and allow it to go through the installation process and it should go off withou a hitch, I've do it many times. Just pay attention to the instructions as you are going through the install process
Yes, you can update by going to Microsoft's website. I highly recommend doing so. Windows 7 is much, much better than Windows Vista. You can update cheaper then buying Windows 7 full.
Most, if not all of them. Windows Vista was released prematurely. windows 7 is what windows 7 Should have been.
You can, but you have to format the computer, and you need Windows Vista Approved CD. Also, Remember to backup the computer first to any drive, for example Portable Drives which has 500GBs.
The game is already included in most editions of Windows Vista; there is no need to copy it.
Windows 7 is nearly identical to Vista, but with many "fit and finish" along with performance and usability improvements. For example, the graphics engine uses Vista's then-new engines to render your desktop using your Graphics Card, which reduces CPU and memory use while boosting reliability (the… old-style GDI graphics system used in XP and prior versions was buggy and the leading cause of crashes). If you've used Windows Vista, you'll be right at home in Windows 7. If you haven't, I recommend skipping Vista for 7's cleaner and faster interface. (MORE)
yes i have reinstalled al types of windows on my PC although i would stay with indows 7 it's way better!
I find that it is. I've had windows 7 since January 2010 and have 0 errors, crashes. I am very pleased with it.
first you need to buy the windows 7 upgrade, which is about 300 or so dollars. then, you open it. it has instructions on how to install from there. To find windows 7, search "Windows 7 upgrade" on Google.
windows action center The security center was quite useful but in Windows 7 its made better. In windows 7 it is called Action center, that's were you can view all your notifications about your computer as well as viewing your security. You can access it by typing it into the start menu or by right c…licking the icon in the notification area of your taskbar that looks like a flag, and clicking open action center. Action center.

although windows 7 is more powerful, has a higher marketing value, and tends to preferred by users it is possible to replace as long as you have the windows 7 and XP disks. RECCOMENDATION: go to best buy and get someone from geek squad to do it, because if you make a mistake you could damage your c…omputer (MORE)
Yes, you can. Backup your data. Insert the disk with windows 7 and follow instructions.
It might but most likely it will not. You might even get a warning state that you are trying to use different installation disk.
Yes, you can certainly upgrade a Windows Vista or XP to a Windows 7 based on the capability of the computer and software. You would have to install a special Windows software for the upgrade.
Not very much because they made to be different, because windows vista wasn't all that good. Some things they do have in common are, they both have windows aero. Updated start menu, updated utilities.
You can get a trial for free but if you want the real thing you would have to buy it
it depends on your webcam but usually, unless there integrated (built in), are useable with any os
No reason why not - since the configuration of the RAM chips has nothing to do with the operating system. So long as the computer you're transferring the RAM chips to is capable of running Windows 7 - it should be fine.
speed, maximising a window by draging it to the top of the screen, shaking a window to minimize all other open windows, better memory management(ram) several other upgraded features. and more i cant think of at the moment.
Apparently, Windows 8 can be 'rolled back' to Windows 7. HOWEVER - some manufacturers say your warranty is void if you do it - and will not do a (free) repair if your computer goes faulty within the guarantee period !
It is totally worth upgrading to Windows 7. Windows 7 is much faster than Windows Vista, because of some memory management and service issues in Windows Vista. I think Windows 7 is easier to use because of the interface. However some might disagree, because some people are used to Windows XP and Win…dows Vista has kept that interface. Windows 7 does have some features like Aero Peek or Aero Snap or Aero Shake, which helps the user to be quick. Windows 7 also has the same system requirements as Windows Vista. So if your computer is running Windows Vista, it has a high chance that it is compatible with Windows 7. Overall, I think it is totally worth it upgrading to Windows 7. It seems much simpler and easier to use, and also faster. I had a terrible experience in Windows Vista and sometimes even wondered why Microsoft created that operating system. Even Windows XP was faster. (MORE)
Windows Vista was technically the replacement for Windows Xp. However, it was so unpopular that many users simply waited for the release of Windows 7 to upgrade.
You can apparently 'roll back' a Windows 8 computer to Windows 7... HOWEVER - some computer manufacturers have said they will not repair a Windows 8 machine (even if it's still under warranty) if it's been rolled back ! They claim rolling a Windows 8 machine back to Windows 7 voids the warranty !
You'll need a copy of windows 7 on a CD, and the activation key ready. Make sure you back up all your files before switching, because installing a new operating system over the old one will reset your hard drive. CD's can be bought online, purchased and downloaded with a valid product key (requires …you to provide your own CD and additional ISO writer), and found in most computer and office supply stores. When you are ready, insert the windows 7 CD into the computer and restart. If an alternate boot menu for the CD doesn't appear, you might need to press the specified key displayed right as the computer starts up to switch to the CD instead. When you get your machine to boot from the CD, it's just a matter of following the on-screen prompt to complete the installation. A Product key will then be required within a few weeks to fully activate the Windows 7 installation. (MORE)
Yes there is, they are different operating systems. VIsta was veryunstable, and was replaced by Windows 7 less than two years later.
