Upgrading or Installation of Windows 7 on the Hard Disk



As you’re using Windows XP until now, you should back up all of your important data to a safe place so that nothing become corrupted specially data on ‘C’ drive where the Windows is installed. Such files are from generally “Desktop”, “Documents” etc.

After you’ve backed up data successfully, retrieve a copy of Windows 7 installation. You can use the official Windows 7 ISO to be as your installation media. Download any copy of Windows 7 ISO, but I recommend to use Windows 7 Ultimate.

Now, it’s time to make a bootable media. You can use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to CD/DVD, or use any bootable USB flash creating software, like Rufus, WiNToBootic, Windows 7 USB DVD tool etc.

After creating the bootable media, insert the drive into your PC, restart your system. When the BIOS icon flashes on screen, quickly press the “Boot Menu” button simultaneously and select the installation media to be booted. Now, follow the techniques to make a clean installation of Windows 7.

Completing the installation, insert your product key and activate Windows. Then, do whatever you like to work with your PC with the robust power of Windows 7.
