Upgrading Vista HP to W7

Just a curios question.

How much time does it take to run the upgrade from Vista Home Premium
to W7 HP on a x64 laptop.

It varies, depending on how much data you have... Most would advise against an upgrade though.. too many things to go wrong...

Hello Enigma,

As Tews posted, it really depends on how much you have on your hard drive. I would say give yourself about an hour for a upgrade. For a clean install give your self about 30 minutes plus however long it takes you to reinstall all of your programs and drivers. To be safe, give yourself at least half the day so you are not rushed.

Hope this helps,
