Depending on the type of your Windows Vista, you can try any of the following to get Windows 7 Operating System working on your computer:

  • Upgraded to a Windows 7 which is more convenient in keeping your files, settings, and programs in place.
  • If you can’t upgrade though, you can do Custom installation of Windows 7 but it will not let you preserve your files, programs, and settings.
  • Back up all your important files first before installing Windows 7 as a replacement of your Windows Vista operating system
  • Check and make sure you have the system requirements to get the Windows 7 OS (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10737/windows-7-system-requirements)

If you are having an original Windows 7 installation DVD, you just need to upgrade your old OS (Windows Vista). It is automated process, and will last 20-30 minutes.

If your computer could run Windows Vista, it can also run Windows 7, since Windows 7 is less demanding for hardware resources than Vista.

If you don’t need to backup your old data, best solution is to do a fresh new installation of Windows 7, with previous formatting of your hard-drive partitions.
