  • Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade will allow an upgrade from Vista Home Premium x 64 to Windows 7 Ultimate x 64?

    I bought a HP laptop with Windows Vista Edition Home Premium x 64 in April 08.  If I buy a Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade, SKU: GLC-00184, I'll be able to upgrade to windows 7 Home Premium x 64 or Windows 7 Ultimate x 64?

    The http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/help/upgrading-from-windows-vista-to-windows-7?T1=tab02 table seems to indicate that would be the case.  On the other hand, it does not seem logical that we could move from Vista Ultimate or vVsta HP to Win7 Ultimate for the same price.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Yes, you can make a place in Windows Vista Edition upgrade Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate.

    When important changes to your computer, for example an upgrade, it is always recommended that you back up your system before installing a new version of Windows. In your case, you can upgrade to Windows 7 depending on the edition and the architecture of Windows Vista, you have installed. If you are running a 32-bit version of Vista and upgrade to a 64-bit (Windows 7 edition) version, you'll have a pure make install, it is the opposite case.

    If you are using Windows Vista Home Basic or Premium consumer editions, you can only upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate. In addition, you can make downgrades, which means, if you are running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition now, you cannot downgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. You perform logical upgrades:

    Windows Vista Home Basic > Windows 7 Home Basic, Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Edition Home Premium > Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Professional, enterprise or ultimate edition

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Enterprise

    Windows Vista Ultimate > Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Code GFC symbolizes the product depending on the location in most cases and in some cases, this has to do with the versions.

    The GFC-00019 is a commercial container 32 and 64-bit disk operating system version. TheGFC-00564 is a 32 bit OEM version. A commercial version can be installed on any computer. But always alone at the same time. But if you install on a computer (and then he got damaged without repair possible) and then I bought another you can install it on the new computer.

    An OEM copy can only be installed on computers. If this computer got far beyond repair that you can not use it again as with the retail version. You can install the OEM as many times as you like on the original computer.

  • My CD-ROM/DVD-Rom drive & the Bison Webcam built into my laptop. Does not work after I upgraded from Vista home premium to Windows 7 Home premium.

    My readers Optiarc DVD - RW AD-7530 ATA Device DVD/CD-ROM & the Bison Webcam built into my laptop. Does not work after I upgraded from Vista home premium to Windows 7 Home premium.
    Although of course, the CD-ROM drive worked during the upgrade.

    Can someone help me please?
    Best regards

    Besides what abdelhak says:

    The message of PXE boot that you receive when you start your computer has nothing to do with your CD/DVD-Rom drive. Your computer uses a PXE boot method to attempt to load Windows from a location on your network. Since you do not have this configuration, it is safe to ignore it. If it slows down the startup time of your system, contact your manufacturer and ask them for instructions on how to "disable PXE Network Boot of the BIOS.

    Hello

    It is an event that I went through:

    Repair of system files change will take effect after the next reboot.

    (2) so I did restart and then try to run the sfc/scannow task once again, but I still got the same message I described in step 1 again. So basically sfc/scannow function did not repair the corrupted files.

    (3) the next step, I decided to perform a repair Installation of visa which took me 10 hours to complete the task, once the task of upgrading of repair has been made and before the windows update, I ran sfc/scannow task and this time he finds any corrupted files, but after I updated windows sfc/scannow result was the same as step 1.

    Hello

    How is your memory configured? that is, what is 2 x 1 GB modules or module 1 x 2 GB. If the former I would check the physical installation of the modules on the MB memory.

    Vista 32 bit should see up to 3 GB, I doubt that it is Vista the cause.

    Another thought, are your shared graphics? in some BIOS, it is possible to ask the system to use a fixed amount of RAM the GUI system, this memory will not be included in the complete system.

    Hello

    There are free downloads of Windows 7, but you would need a product key to activate it. It is therefore of no use to you.

    You should contact the manufacturer of your laptop, in your case, Toshiba and get the Windows 7 Upgrade in the time to take advantage of the offer.

    This is the upgrade Option:

    How does the Windows 7 upgrade Option?

    The Windows 7 upgrade Option is available through participating PC manufacturers on some PC and Microsoft on any purchase of packaged product Windows Vista. The Windows 7 upgrade Option applies to Windows Vista Home Premium, Business and Ultimate editions. Your upgrade to Windows 7 will be the comparable version: so you will get either Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional (upgrade to Windows Vista Business) or Windows 7 Ultimate, respectively. The Windows 7 upgrade Option program takes place June 26, 2009 through January 31, 2010. Some manufacturers may choose to shorten the time to upgrade Option.

    Unfortunately, it has expired.

    For more information about the offer, please contact Toshiba.

    There are several methods to reinstall Vista, as you say you have problems with Vista.

    This can help you (download files and make your own DVDs):

    http://www.heidoc.NET/Joomla/technology-science/Microsoft/57-Windows-Vista-direct-download-links

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

    You need to change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order:

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery on the drive Partition hard reinstall Windows how much you bought your computer.

    With a Toshiba, you press 0 (zero) to the starter to start the process of recovery back to the factory settings.

    And if you do not score a manufacturer of recovery on your hard drive, you should be able to make your own recovery from her disks to reinstall the operating system.

    Go to programs > name of the manufacturer of your computer > then their system or recovery tools software topics for them, depending on how it is formulated.

    If you can't find any reference to it, contact the manufacturer for advice on how to make these recovery disks.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs
