After having endless installer problem and and using the upgrade option of my Vista a few times, and still having these issues,
I discovered I could purchase for free Windows 7 Ultimate student version from the college,

Since my issues with Vista, is it better to do a clean install of Windows 7?

And is the "student" version of Windows 7 different or limiting from the original Windows 7 Ultimate?

if your using vista 32bit OS - then you will be seeing about 3.3gb memory

just tried the upgrade advisor and worked fine on my vista PC

as you cant test to see if it will work - make sure you have created any recovery CDs and copied all the data off the PC before you do the upgrade - just in case some of your hardware does not work and you need to go back to vista

so you are suggesting the upgrade option not the clean Win 7 install, even though had numerous problems in Vista?
