Upgrade from Vista Home Premium to 7
Hi, Can anyone advice?
I currently have Vista Home Premium and have bought Windows 7 Professional.. only to find that I will lose all of my files if and when I upgrade. I have emailed Microsoft and am waiting for a reply... I have made a backup from Vista on to an external hard drive... but would still have to install all progarms etc... is there any version of Windows 7 that I could upgrade to that would retain all of my files?
I have ahad a rpoblem with Vista for months in that it will not install updates...
Any suggestions greatly received...

Have you considered using the Easy Transfer tool?
Windows Easy Transfer - Transfer To & From Computers
You can also fool Windows 7 into thinking you are upgrading from Vista Professional.
Open regedit, and navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version.
Change Edition ID to Professional, and Product Name to Windows Vista Professional.
