    Thank you, Noel.

    Have ordered the full Windows 7 (through Amazon and Ballicom per the link) and will get back to you before I finally sit down and start the exercise, just to check I'm using the right tutorial for whichever route I choose to go. At the moment it looks like the 32bit.

    I do suggest that you post new MGADiag report as soon at it's installed so we can check and make sure that it's OK, while you're still in the complaints window - just in case!

    Below is the version I've ordered and been advised by the seller to check that it's the correct one (because Amazon sometimes displays the product wrongly, apparently) - even though it's already been despatched.

    1 x Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium - Complete package - 1 PC - DVD - 32/64-bit - English - Rest of World (GFC-00025)

    Is it?

    I assume it is but I've no idea what the code means.

    That should be OK.

    Okay. I think I'm ready to give it a shot tomorrow.

    I'm going to print off your Clean install for Windows 7 tutorial [ETA- I think I mean Custom install because I am presently on Vista 32bit - yes?]and follow that to install the 64 bit version. If that goes well, then I'll push my Ram up to 8Gb (4 x 2) and up my Graphics card to a later nVidia model. But- step by step.

    At present my machine is running much better just with the ram being increased to 4 but I think I want to change to Windows Seven because I would like to try Flight Simulator X and possibly build my own machine for that. From reading elsewhere I gather Windows Seven is the preferable platform for FSX.

    I suspect building from scratch is probably better than dabbling and tinkering with this Dell - I have a feeling that tinkering with the units in a factory built machine is just going to create headaches.

    Here's to tomorrow- I'll keep you informed if and when I get back on the net!

    The motherboard should be able to cope if it was able to allow upgrades to the full Vista versions. It's a KU345 Conroe E6600 2.40G 4MB 1066FSB B2 (which is double dutch to me) .

    Hi Noel.

    As you can see, I have survived and my machine is now on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with 4Gb of Ram and a Windows Performance Index of 5.6 (That is the gaming graphics mark -all the rest are 5.9)

    As a matter of interest my prior WPI was 5.3 (relating to the first item on the list - CPU) with the other ratings (going down the list) 5.5, 5.9. 5.8, 5.9

    It took ages for me to puzzle out why, when I initially loaded the installation disc, I was getting messages that told me what I was trying to do was was incompatible - I was apparently missing a CD/DVD driver etc. Don't ask me how but I finally strode into the BIOS and discovered a line that said open from CD so I clicked it and Bingo!

    Now, after a few exciting days of updates and head scratching I think I'm okay apart from final tweaking of Internet stuff. Windows 7 did a great job tracking stuff down and pointing me in the right direction.

    I'm in Mozilla Firefox for browsing, and Windowsd Easy Transfer has transferred all my bookmarks.

    E-mail is not yet checked but I'm in Googlemail so I doubt that will be much hastle.

    I wouldn't have dreamed of tackling something like this a few weeks ago but you, and the helpful Tutorials have carried me through. Thanks a million, Noel.

    Next step is to fix that Graphics dip and probably replace my nVidia GeForce 7900 GS graphics card but I guess I have to go to the graphics section here to do that. Must remember to upgrade my computer system details here, too.

    The report below means nothing to me, but if you think all is okay, I presume I then activate Windows Seven by clicking on the appropriate spot in the System page.

    Fingers crossed - and you and Brink and co have made an old man rather pleased with himself and able to tell his two surprised sons. "Yeah! The old man did it! How about that then?"

    The report looks kosher, at least :)

    Windows has got a lot easier to install over the years as more companies complied with the basic rules and windows got better at updates. It's no longer the major saga that it used to be.
    Glad you managed to get through it without too much pain!

    Activate it, and good luck with your new system!
