Confusion

Hi all, I have just upgraded to windows 7 from xp,everything went very well and everything working.But i am a bit confused about re-installing if anything goes wrong.If i need to re-install do i do a clean install or the custom install which i did to upgrade.
The reason i am confused is because xp is now gone,will windows 7 know that i have already upgraded.I hope this makes sense !!!Also i am sorry if this has already been posted,i have looked on google to find the answers but it does not make much sense.thank you.

Welcome

With your new OS you are going to have questions, since it is so different from XP. Please, feel free to return to the forum with any other concerns that you may have. We are here to help you.

Hello mrobjo and welcome to Seven Forums! Now that you have everything setup the way you want it, I strongly suggest that you image your system drive. It is a lot easier to restore an image than it is to have to reinstall your OS.... Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
