Windows 7: Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

WiNToBootic bootable usb drive windows vista/7/8 - Bootable USB | Bootable USB

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Home Premium and Professional 64 Bit are both 3.09 GBs

The sticker on the pc will be for Vista, you will have to buy windows 7 if you want to activate it, if not you only have 30 days to use it.

Use this site to download the iso you want.

is there way to test if windows 7 64 bit will work on my laptop which had windows 7 64 bit on it before HDD died? I wanna to test to make sure ISO is legit.

I think im fine with re-install vista after 30 days but i wonder if upgrading to window 7 will help run games smoothly without freezing/skipping frames? I probably will consider buying key code if it does improve.

Wait a minute, what operating system is listed on the COA ?

If the pc came with Windows 7 installed it will be fine to re install it, I`m confused as to why you would even ask

Installing windows 98 is better then using Vista

No, there is no way to test it, you test it by installing it.

From what I can find, that machine only came with Vista or XP.

My desktop XPS 730 came with vista product key code. My laptop came with windows 7 key. Im waiting on new laptop HDD to arrive and I want to upgrade my desktop. Windows 98? isn't that way older than Vista? Will windows 98 make minecraft runs better?

It was a joke. Anything is better then Vista.

Why don`t you put the Windows 7 iso on a dvd, it`s so much easier to install windows from a dvd for a novice.

You have a key for Vista so that`s what you should install on the XPS until you buy Windows 7.
