Just put the setup DVD in whilst Vista is running.

It will recommend you run the upgrade advisor prior to performing the upgrade. That identifies common incompatibilities/issues/apps that need to be ugpraded.

Then it does the upgrade if you want. It's a relatively painless process. If you're happy with your current Vista installation you can do an upgrade. If you'd like to start again from scratch then a clean install might be better.

Subject: [thelist] Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a 64-bit HP Pavilion (employee perk) that came bundled with 64-bit Vista.

Since no Mac owners want to trade with me (kidding... a little...) thinking about doing the upgrade to Windows 7.

Can anyone who has gone that path (or a similar path) provide some tips for the wary?

After all... the wise man said "Paranoia is only heightened awareness."
