Windows me upgrade to windows 7

could you tell how to go from windows me to windows 7? and can you tell me how to go from windows 98 to windows 7.... and xp to windows 7... I would like to buy only one install type, but if I have to purchase more I will. I want all of my computers to be on the same format with windows 7. presario 1200 xl310- windows me laptop... hp pavillion 8480z.. and a dell 8250. I am 54 yrs young raising my 4 grandchildren I adopted after the father passed away and I want all of my computers to be the same so they will stop fussing and fighter over which one they use. thank you for any insite. Am on a limited budget, but if need be will save to get the right stuff.

  1. You can run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if your computer can handle running Windows 7: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor

    At the very least, it will let you know which direction to upgrade towards.

  2. There is no upgrade path from Windows ME to Windows 7.
    It's almost certain that you won't be able to get W7 to run on that laptop anyway.
    Minum systems requirements are 1GB of ram and 16 GB of free hard drive space.
    That laptop came standard with 128mg of ram and expandable to a maximum of 320mb. I don't know what size hard drive it has, but I feel reasonably sure it's not big enough to fir W7 on.
    The HP is likewise underspecified and the hard disk too small.
    The Dell is the only one with a chance of running Windows7.
    Also note that the W7 instalation media is on a DVD, so you would need a dvd reader in each pc, as far as I can tell the Dell was fitted with a dvd drive.
    Further you would need 3 licences one for each pc, while you could get a family pak for 3 pc's, there is not much hope of using them on the first 2.
    Download the advisor from the link supplied by w7pro and install and run it on each pc.
    Only XP and later are eligible to be upgraded to W7.
