Windows 7: Quick Upgrade Question from Vista

Quick Upgrade Question from Vista

My computer went through some problems and I will be getting a new hard drive. Once I get the new HDD I will have to reinstall Vista, which will only have up to service pack 1 included. Do I need to then upgrade to Vista Service Pack 2 before installing my Windows 7 Professional Upgrade, or will it still work on top of service pack 1?

Thank you.

You'll be fine with sp1. Make sure you go to your user cp and fill inyour system specs. It will help if you run into any problems down the line. Fabe
