XP to Windows 7 'Upgrade' Scheme Announced by Microsoft- How to upgrade to Windows 7 from XP?
Were you waiting to find how to upgrade to Microsoft’s most awaited OS Windows 7 from Windows XP version. Microsoft will help users upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 by selling upgrade media, but warned XP users they must do a “clean” installation of Windows 7. That means all data on the XP machine will be lost.
Regarding XP, customers can purchase upgrade media and an upgrade licence to move from Windows XP to Windows 7 and perform a clean installation of Windows 7. Upgrade actually means upgrading the license and such upgraded license will be discounted according to Microsoft.
However, Microsoft has declined to provide pricing for all six editions of Windows 7, or for the XP upgrade licences. More news on all six versions of Windows 7, visit the geeklog article now, here and find out which is the best edition of Windows 7. Microsoft has been aggressively pushing Windows 7’s timetable. Just two weeks after it launched the first – and in the end, the only – public beta of the new operating system, the head of Windows development said the company is moving directly to ‘release candidate’ directly to ‘release candidate’.
Microsoft said it was working on ways to help Windows XP users make the move, but would not get specific. “Microsoft plans to have other tools and ways to help people get through that process, but we don’t have full details on that at this time”.
