Switching to Windows®7 Made Easy
The easiest way to switch to Windows®7 is the automatic update. All you need to
do is insert your Windows®7 CD and follow the instructions. During this process,
your existing installation is analyzed and transferred to Windows®7 using
intelligent routines. We recommend that you save your personal data prior
to the update in the manner described in the next section.
You can also run a Windows®7 installation from scratch.
Here, too, you can transfer your data and settings from your existing
installation to the new one. But please keep in mind that any programs
you may have installed previously will have to be re-installed. You may
also require your driver CD for your various installed components.
Saving and Transferring Your Data.
Windows® Vista comes with a tool “Windows Easy Transfer” that
allows you to transfer your data and settings to Windows®7.
How to do it:
1. First, save your data using any data-backup utility (e.g., the preinstalled program
“Backup”). You can call up this tool under “All Programs” > “Accessories” >
“System Tools” > “Backup”. Read the instructions and make sure that the
backup works. Note: This step is independent of the transfer of your data
and settings and only serves the purpose of additional security.
Check to make sure that the drivers and tools are still available on the D:
drive. If not, please use the driver CD that came with your system. You may
need the drivers for the reinstallation. In general the drivers should also
work with Windows®7.
3. Save your data and settings to external media (e.g., disk) using the program
“Windows Easy Transfer”. You can call up this tool under “All Programs” >
“Accessories” > “System Tools” > “Windows Easy Transfer”.
4. Now insert the Windows®7 CD and follow the instructions.
5. Once the installation is complete, load your data and settings onto your
computer using the program “Windows Easy Transfer”. You can call up
this tool under “All Programs” > “Accessories” > “System Tools” >
“Windows Easy Transfer”. If necessary, install any additional
programs and drivers as required.
