Dual boot Win7 Home Premium and Vista Home Premium SP2
Just upgraded wifes Vista HP to WIN7 HP

and no problem.

WIN7 Upgrade advisor said that Arcsoft 5.5 (software that came with Canon Lide25 scanner) would have issues, but post-upgrade, none.

Her GeoForce Fx5200 and her soundcard drivers were both updated by Windows Update after install and likewsie that we off without a hitch.

All programs, settings etc were retained.

A P4 3ghz running 2.25 GB ram.

She's happy, I'm happy.
