Can i install windows 7 32 bit on a dell e521

I have a Dell E521 and I am looking to upgrade to Windows 7. I am currently running the 32 bit version of Windows Vista. Furthermore, I have the 32 bit version and wanted to know if there are any compatibility issues that I should be aware of. Thanks ahead of time for any responses.

  1. If you are currently running Vista, there's no reason you wouldn't be able to install Windows 7. I would run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to identify any major compatibility problems, but you'll probably be fine.
