A Windows 7 Upgrade disk will modernize Vista on a HP with a new generic motherboard?

My HP m8517c PC ASUS IPIBL - motherboard is dead so I replaced it with a new card by mother ASUS P5G41T-M.  When you start the HP Windows Vista Home Premium fails because it has HP drivers only for the original mobo...  If I buy a Windows 7 home Premium Upgrade it will modernize the HP Vista?

N ° you need a copy of the full license of Windows 7.  Upgrade license requires a genuine copy of Windows to upgrade.  Your OEM copy is invalid (not genuine) on a retail mobo.  However, the driver problem is another matter.  The motherboard manufacturer provides drivers that you need for the new mobo.  Download the drivers from the site of the mfg, not HP.

If you buy a copy of the full license of Windows 7, you can perform an upgrade in-place depending on which edition of Vista you're using and what edition of Windows 7 that you buy.  Please see the information on the Microsoft Store website to see if you need to do an upgrade installation or a custom installation.  Anyway you will always need a license product key full.

  • My Windows 7 upgrade disk has only 32 bits. I want to install Windows 7 64-bit. What can I do?

    Upgrade to 64 - bit with this situation?
    A few years ago, I bought a PC which has Vista installed on it, but I was given a Windows 7 Upgrade disk to install Windows 7. I was able to create a clean install with upgrade disc. Recently, I discovered that my processor can support 64-bit, so I want to go to that. Problem is the upgrade disc contains the 32-bit version, even though I believe complete dics of Windows 7 contains both versions. It does not mean that I am eligible for the 64 bit version of Windows 7? It's terribly confusing.
    What are my options for installation of 64-bit? The 64-bit version can be downloaded or something? I even use the same product key?

    Will be the product key, I received with my job to drive upgrade with the 64-bit version, I downloaded?

    Yes.

    The key of Windows 7 works with 32 and 64 bit, but can only be installed at a time.

    I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7 on my computer, as the strain of her age is starting to show. I hope that some performance improvements.

    But I get this error message:
    "The unattended Setup answer file contains an invalid product key. Remove the invalid key, or provide a product key valid in the answer file for unattended Setup to install Windows. »
    I don't know if it is just that I have a version of Finnish language of the OS and did not bother to write the error message in its complete form, but something very close to that anyway.
    I couldn't find any solution for this through Google. People had got this error, but it is especially in the relations of a virtual PC installation.
    Initially, I had Vista, but I then upgraded to Windows 7 with a upgrade disk. I'm trying to reinstall using this disc of Windows 7. My Windows 7 is genuine and I have not had problems.
    I think it might be because the codes to activate Vista and Windows 7 are different? Maybe I have the Vista activation code in my file without supervision when there should be order in a Win7 to make it work? Is it still possible? I would naturally opinion of someone who is a bit more up-to-date saw that I could make a mess of things just dive head on.
