Windows 7: Acer Aspire 5610 Vista laptop to Win 7 - possible?

Just something more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DONT EVER FORGET to make a backup of the preinstalled acer software before yu do the clean install of W7, generally is located in a folder called OEM in the root drive... with that, you can reinstall any acer software if you need it (I don't think so, but is always good to do that)

THANKS for the advise!

After 12+ hours doing image backups, I tried an upgrade this morning - Failed at the very end & rolled back to Vista. Seems I didn't pay enough attention to some issues that were clearly stated by MS advisor.
