Hey, Not sure whats going on here but I have completely formated my HD and reinstalled Windows 7 on it. Now everytime I start my computer I have to choose between Windows 7, and a "Previous Version of Windows" which clicking does nothing. There is the system partition that it automatically makes (100mb) that I havent formatted. Do I need to format that? TY
It is always best to delete al lthe partitions on your hard drive(s) before starting a fresh install. The 100mb partition that Windows 7 creates during installation is not big enough to contain the OS itself - but I beleive it does contain certain drivers and set up files.
Try formatting and deleting all the partitions and then re-installing
Before making any attempts at upgrading your Windows operating sytem; you should first backup all of your important data!
You can also go with the easy transfer, there is a very well planned out tutorial on the microsoft site: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/help/upgrad...
Please refer to Microsoft official site:
Windows 7 Compatibility: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.) http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/de...
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7
