    Post How to Upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7

    To upgrade your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7, you'll need to select the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. A custom installation doesn't preserve your programs, files, or settings. It's sometimes called a "clean" installation for that reason.





    A custom installation is more complex, and it can sometimes take a couple of hours to complete. Microsoft has created this five-step tutorial to help guide you through the entire process each step of the way.

    Visit Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 - Help & How-to - Microsoft Windows for details.

    Download xps file of tutorial.

    Thanks for this, as I am about to help a friend with their upgrade to 7 from Vista, this might save me having to do it once they read this.

    I better believe in clean installation rather than a upgrade..

    Clean install takes only 15 to 20 mins to install windows and 1 hr. max for settings and fresh installation of other software.....
