i found out that you can't do the upgrade so i wiped out the hard drive using my desk top and installed win 7 on it and put it back in the laptop like i originally did and it keeps rebooting over and over with no luck. i can set the bios to any thing listed and it still reboots.some one else tried the usb drive too and couldn't do it either.i'm wondering if the bios battery is no good because it wont boot to any but the hard drive or some mobo problem?thanks.
