I just want to find out is there no way besides using a secondary hard drive to update your windows from xp to 7 or must i be left with no other alternative to format?

Yeah but same time you have to reinstall everything wanted to avoid the pain of sitting there doing it all over again plus everything is all updated now its a clean swipe hope its worth it

If you have no issues with XP, no need to upgrade to 7. 7 is better, but probably not worth the hassle of re-installing everything unless you need to. Wait till you get a new PC or hard drive then do it.

If you don't want to reinstall everything, you could set up a dual boot system.

If you do the custom install with windows 7, it will move all your user data to c:\windows.old. Programs will have to be reinstalled.
