I am confused. My computer crashed and am going to have to reformat. My Dell came with Vista and a free upgrade tp 7, which I did. Now, do I reformat with Vista and then upgrade to 7 or do I go to Windows 7 to begin with? Any info will be will be helpful. Thank you, Gary

Install 7, during the installation process you will be prompted to pop in the Vista disc as qualifying media. ;)

If your Windows 7 disc from Dell is their standard Reinstallation disc, you should be able to just install that . . try it ans see. At worst you might have to backtrack

Did a reinstall with the Windows 7 upgrade disk. Everything seems to work fine. Could not reinstall Musicmatch jukebox because of compatabilty problems. Thanks, Gary
