lenovo netbook s10 and windows 7 upgrade!

hi guys i recently ordered the lenovo ideaPad netbook s10 and should be getting it soon, it comes with xp, so i purchased a windows 7 upgrade from win741. for $32.00. they link you to a download .iso and .exe. i downloaded both files and have a product key.

so the question is how should i go about upgrading? do i just copy the .exe file on my desktop? i take it that the .iso needs to be burned to disk and installed by disk drive, but not available with my netbook.

thank you for any help in this matter.

Check out these tutorials, should tell you all you need to know

You have the option of doing an upgrade but a clean install is always best, since your machine is new you have nothing to lose

Hello stealthster, Welcome to the best Windows forums out there!

There are a number of ways to upgrade. First, to clarify, you are technically not upgrading. You will be doing a clean install. Check out this awesome tutorial.

If you have an external hard drive or thumb drive bigger than 4GB, it would be safest to backup the ISO and exe files , in case anything happens.

What you can do is just run the setup.exe file. If you want to boot from a disc, you will need to burn the ISO to a DVD using ISO Recorder or a similar program.

Hope this helps,
~Jonathan
