Windows 7: Windows 7 on a Gateway GM5632E

Windows 7 on a Gateway GM5632E

I own a Gateway GM5632E and would like to run Windows 7 on it. I purchased a one of the family upgrades, so I own Windows 7 Home premium. I have attempted the upgrade twice. I never get ANY errors, but at about 65% through the final process, it just hangs. No reason, no nothing. I reboot and it rolls back my Vista. I know that Gateway says Windows 7 won't run on this system, but I also know that others have made it work. Any ideas or direction would be helpful. Thanks In Advance.

I suggest doing a clean install- yes, you can clean install windows from an upgrade disk.

Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

During the install, delete all the partitions and format the hard drive then create fresh partitions, that'll give you the best start.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

What are the system specs? Nevermind, found them.

Windows 7 will run extremely well on that system. I'd stop going to Gateway and just get the drivers from the source, like Intel. A clean install will work fine, and once you load the drivers it will be running very well.
