Always a good idea to backup information before you upgrade, just keep that in mind. Pop in the disc and you'll be set to go..!

Hi Shoe - Here is a guide to help you with the installation process (just in case you need it ) - Upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 - Help & How-to - Microsoft Windows

When do you connect to the internet use Windows Update to get the drivers you need. To do so, click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

Let us know how it goes and enjoy Windows 7!

Cheers,

Check optional Windows Updates for newer drivers, as they weren't updated during install.
