I am preparing to make an attempt to make a clean upgrade install to Windows 7. I have a question that I would like answered before I start. I have learned the danger of having problems with SATA Hard Drives during installation. Should I, as a average user be concerned about this? My data is backed up on Carbonite.

Intel e6600 Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 GHz
Noctua NH-U12P Cooler
ASUS P5Q Pro
OCZ Reaper 2X2GB DDR2 800 (PC 6400)
EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 640 MB
WD 250GB GB SATA II
Corsair CMPSU 550W
Windows XP Home

With 1 sata you should have no problems.
If you go to 64 bit you may want to see if all software is compatable.

Your hardware should run Win7 x64 without any issues, just make sure you have the latest drivers from ...

Intel = Motherboard chipset support
Nvidia = GPU

I always install with no external devices connected until o/s is configured and then add them one at a time.
