First thing to do is to check its compatibility Vista at the link above and check to its manufacturer for system requirements: RAM, graphics, etc.

    mjcandlec1,
    Welcome to the forums.  Firstly (and this is just my personal opinion) you can actually have a bit more large partition for the operating system.  Just to receive the updates and service packs and other.

    This article will show you how to change the default location of My Documents.  Also when you install programs then ensure you that you change the default installation directory, it will try to go on the C: drive.

If you have a "restore CD" the game that the BIOS so that the CD-ROM drive is the 1st device to start, followed by the hard drive. then power on the computer and "press any key" when prompted to start the installation.

  • XP to 7 upgrade when the operating system is on a disk separate from the data in My Documents. Do I still need to transfer data from my disk storage documents?

    So I looked at what it will take to upgrade the system to Windows 7 and it seems that for xp, it's a custom installation.  Since I have my data, music, photos, movies, ect in my documents on a separate disk can I just forget to do the recommended data transfer and do a clean install on the operating system drive?  Of course, I'll have to install programs on it but I'm worried about Windows 7 being able to find the separate disk and re-issue of links so that when I send something to my documents it always goes on this disc.  Worried about problems or suggestions anyone can see that I will meet you.  Thank you

    Hi monty67,

    Yes, you will need to perform a custom installation of Windows 7 on Windows XP, operating system, and also you need to reinstall programs work in Windows 7, some programs may not work in Windows 7 due there compatibility with Windows 7.

    After I installed Windows 7 on the computer, you can use the external hard drive with no problems, some external disk may required additional drivers to be installed under Windows 7.

    See the article below to know the process of custom installation.

  • My computer has been infected recently with Sirefef (AB and W variants). How will I know if I do a backup/clean install of the operating system or not?

    As says the question: my computer has been infected recently with Sirefef (AB and W variants).  How will I know if I do a backup/clean install of the operating system or not?

    I'm running a full system scan in ESM right now, and it has detected multiple instances of sirefef.   I have remove as they pop up, but I'm afraid that when I run another scan they all will always be there.  Is there a way to know if MSE is actually remove them and he cleaning?  If not, should I do a back up and reinstall the OS?

    Thank you.  I can choose to try this, however, I would like an answer to my other questions first.

    Sirefef is a rootkit and yes he can hide in your system.  This is why it has been suggested that you may need to reformat/reinstall.  In fact, it's the only way to eliminate malware.  Multiple scans with several scanners and no conclusion malware probably indicate he disappeared, but the key word is "probably".  Malwarebytes is good and what he finds now may be traces of the infection, but what he finds perhaps not active more - it is always good to run the scans so.

    What spare drive did you run?  What scanners did you use?  See again you and follow the guide "Malwaretips"?

    For the firewall problem, you can try the following Microsoft Fixit.

    One of the users of the Forum answers maintains that a great guide on information security is important for understanding the removal of malicious software.  See the following compliments of Brian M - for suggestions on how to solve your problem: http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/malware-removal-guide/#after see: after the removal process and solve the problems of Post disinfection

    Uninstall/reinstall of MSE is how?  All the problems?  Have you tested MSE with eicar to be sure it's working?

    Assume that you have not had an opportunity to review the MSE Installation Checklist or you would have noted that MSE and Windows Defender cannot be used on the same computer.  So if WD works in fact it means MSE has been disabled/not not work correctly or not installed.

  • I would like to know if the change in the operating system will also change the product ID

    Original title: change of the operating system

    Hello

    I would like to know if the change in the operating system will also change the product ID.

    Please can you me this.

    Hi Agnes,.

    Thanks for posting the request in Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. are you referring to the product key or Product ID?

    2. you try to upgrade to Windows 8.1 with the same product key?

    Product ID is built into the hardware of the machine components. The product key is a 25 character alphanumeric code shown in five groups of five characters each (for example, BCDFG-12345-HJKLM-67890-NPQRS). When you change the operating system, product ID remains the same and not need to change.

    You can reuse the product key in the file product ID for multiple installations of the same version of the operating system. The product key in the product ID file is only used to install Windows.

    The edition of Windows that you are installing must match the product key used to activate Windows. If you use a product key to select a Windows edition, we recommend using the same key to activate Windows, so that the edition you are installing is the same as the edition that you select.

    Work with the keys and product activation

  • Satellite A79-S229: need CD to recover the operating system

    Hi, I have just formatted my laptop and I lost my disc withrecovery and aplications with drivers. I need emergency to get a.

    Please help me - Pawel

    Satellite A79-S229 is unknown to me but maybe you meant the Satellite A75-S229.
    In this case, it s an American unit. I mean it was designed for the American market and that's why I recommend you research on the Toshiba site for drivers.
    It of not necessary to have the recovery CD because you can also install the operating system from the original CD of Microsoft Windows and then you can install the drivers of Toshiba.

    But of course the installation of the OS since the recovery CD is very easy and all the drivers, tools and utilities are already preinstalled and are part of the image of Toshiba.
    The recovery CD you should be able to order the service partner in your country.
