Windows 7 is till now the best Windows operating system released till date, as per the user feedback, sales numbers and experience it has got some very positive comments.

All those user who are still using XP and may want to upgrade to windows 7 are out of luck, as Microsoft does not allow to upgrade from XP to windows 7 as both are vastly different OS in terms of feature and their structure.

However there are 2 ways with which you can partially upgrade from XP to windows 7, but both of these method will require some input from your side.

The first method is to install windows 7 in dual boot, after running the setup from Windows XP so it will get added to the boot loader. But it will result in wastage of disk space and it will require a different partition also to get installed this way. More »

Just as it was the case for Windows Vista, Microsoft’s latest iteration of the Windows client can also be uninstalled, although “uninstall” does not specifically describe the process that end users will need to take in order to revert to a previously existing copy of a Windows OS. At the same time, also as for its predecessor, Windows 7 can only be removed and the previous Windows platform reinstated in a single installation scenario. Namely, uninstalling the latest version of the operating system is only possible if users installed Windows 7 as a new installation over an earlier version of Windows in the first place.

Obviously, clean installs of Windows 7, where no old OS existed on the hard drive, cannot be uninstalled. The same is valid for users that opted to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7, as well as for those who created multi-boot configurations, deploying Windows 7 alongside older Windows releases.

Uninstalling Windows 7 is only possible if “You used the Windows 7 installation media to install Windows 7 to the same hard disk drive on which you had Windows XP, Windows Vista, or another version of Windows 7 installed. In this scenario, the Windows 7 installation will have created a Windows.old folder that contains your previous operating system and personal files. This Windows.old folder is in the root of the Windows partition,” Microsoft noted.
