Portege M750 - how to upgrade to Windows 7 without preinsatlled Vista?

I have a laptop Portege M750 who had professional Vista on this subject.
I removed vista and installed the RC of windows 7

Now I have received the final windows 7 vista upgrade but can not install via Win7rc or independent to have vista first.
I don't have a cd of vista for the laptop as it came only with the CD of windows xp for some reason any.

The recovery partition has been deleted when installing win7 rc
I'm downloading a torrent of vista that should work, but is a few hours

I was wondering if there is another option for the upgrade of windows 7 to install

Hello

You cannot switch to Win 7 without Vista operating system preinstalled.
In this case, you can do ONLY a clean installation of Windows 7.
But for this, need you a Win 7 DVD and not an upgrade disk.

I think that the laptop has been pre-installed with Vista and there is a possibility to create a Vista recovery disk.
(but in addition you get a Win XP disk in order to have two operating systems).
Looks like you do not have create this Toshiba Vista recovery disk using the Toshiba recovery disc creator (must be preinsatlled on the laptop), which means that you will not be able to reinstall Vista new

I think that there is nothing to do but to buy a Windows 7 disc and do a clean install.

  • Someone knows how to upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit to dm3?

    Hi all

    Recently, I bought my computer laptop pavilion dm3-1028tx (sp9300, 4 GB ddr3). Unfortunely only it comes with oem windows 7 Home premium 32-bit instead of windows 7 64-bit.

    Due to the characteristic of 32 bits, its only 3 GB of ram could be used.

    IM plan to upgrade my windows 7 Home premium 32-bit to 64-bit windows 7 home premiun.

    I tried to contact microsoft in my country, they said I should ask to HP, if I could spend my windows because its OEM.

    Someone knows how to upgrade my windows 7 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit without having to buy a new one? Please help me I do not know.

    Thanks a lot guys

    Unfortunately, you will need to buy the 64-bit version, unless you can get HP to you give 64-bit free citing inability to use all of the memory as a customer support/advocacy.   But you should check on HP website to see if your model was first 64-bit drivers.

    He will have to do a new installation as well.  And if HP is not actively support 64-bit for your model, you will lose the HP software (most consider bloatware anyway).  You will also lose built in recovery option.  So, at least, make sure you create your restore disks.

    You may be able to wash to recover the partition, but I don't know how you would be able to use it without recovery software that HP has loaded.

    Installation - 'upgrade' means what?
    Upgrade means that you can install Windows 7 simply by inserting the Windows 7 upgrade software in the DVD drive of your PC and follow the instructions on the screen. While you are not required to backup and reinstall your files, or reinstall your programs, it is a very good idea to back up your files and settings before you start any upgrade to the software. Get more information on the software updates and best practices .

    Installation - what does "Custom (Clean)" Mean?
    A custom (clean) installation clears the contents of the hard drive of your PC. Your files, settings, and programs will not be transferred to Windows 7. This means that to install Windows 7, you must:

    • Back up any files and settings you want to keep

    • Install Windows 7

    • Reinstall all your files

    • Reinstall all the programs you want to use.

    These four steps take time, skills, techniques and Windows Easy Transfer can help. However, if you are not comfortable with this process, please consider having the installation carried out by a local service provider.

  • I have windows 7 key to business, how can upgrade to windows 10. I see that it is not included in the upgrade process

    I have windows 7 key to business, how can upgrade to windows 10. I see that it is not included in the upgrade process.

    In some forum I read, I can upgrade with a small charge for windows 7 ultimate, and after that I can move on to W10. Someone can tell me where and how do I upgrade to W7Ultimate?

    Thank you

    Windows 7 Enterprise is a volume license customer, it is not eligible for the free upgrade offer. If you have Windows 7 Enterprise through your employer, contact the network administrator or your Help Desk Support staff for more information on the upgrade to Windows 10 company.

    If you need Windows 10, you can purchase one license other wise, then perform a custom installation. You will need to reinstall the drivers and applications and also to save your personal files.

  • I have Windows XP Pro. Can I upgrade to Windows 7 without having to first install Vista?

    I have Windows XP Pro. and lose the connection with my printer (HP Officejet 6500 and I was told that I had to upgrade to Windows 7) Can I upgrade to Windows 7 without having to first install Vista?

    I have Windows XP Pro. and lose the connection with my printer (HP Officejet 6500 and I was told that I had to upgrade to Windows 7) Can I upgrade to Windows 7 without having to first install Vista?

    You can - clean installation however.  No direct path from Windows XP to Windows 7.

    If the machine is old, but - I wouldn't bother.  You will end up by it hate because it is slow and probably blame the operating system.

    The upgrade to Windows 7 is not a solution for the loss of connectivity to a printer - not a logic.

    Is what SPECIFIC printer this?

    HP Officejet 6500 All - in - One Printer series - E709

    If you download and install the latest appropriate WIndows XP complete software driver for your printer and maybe upgrade the firmware of the printer itself-, it would probably solve your problem.  If you use it as a wireless printer (it is printed through your network, but not connected by a cable [ethernet]) so you can check for updgrades to the firmware of your router (level) and reconfigure your network completely wireless if you start with a good foundation.

    Hello

    If you use the Vista licence as part of the upgrade to Windows 7 you cannot use the license of Vista anywhere elsewhere

    It is part of the upgrade process

    and also read this on licensing rules;

    If Windows was preinstalled on your computer, Dell, HP, etc., or you bought an OEM/license disk, they are both classified as an OEM license and are not transferable.

    The Windows OEM license is linked to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop

    If a retail Windows license, you can transfer it to another computer/laptop.
    But it can only be installed on one computer at a time.

    A single license is a single Installation.
