I'm in a similar situation as this guy:

except when I boot up my disk, I only get to the 2nd step:

2) Progress Bar:
The next screen is a more graphical progress bar indicating Windows 7 is still working in the background.

it wont go past this screen.

The same thing happens when I boot it up normally(without the disk for windows 7 home premium), only with the disk in it has the windows 7 rather than the vista look.

Does anyone know what is causing this problem?

Greetings Tech Support Guy, The computer I wish to purchase has Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled, with a ticket to purchase an upgrade To Windows 7 Home Premium.
As I wish to use Windows 7 immediately (without bothering with Vista Home Premium) can you please advise, in detail, how I can delete Vista completely and install Windows 7 with minimum fuss.
All help greatly appreciated,
With Best Regards

A:Replacing Vista Home Premium with Windows 7 Home Premium

When you get the Vista DVD, boot from it and choose Custom "advanced" installation. Then highlight the partition you want to put 7 on (preferably the Vista partition) then click "delete" (be careful which partition you choose) once the old Vista partition is deleted, be sure the new unallocated partition is highlighted and hit next to continue installing 7. Here is a screenshot, your partition structure may be slightly different.

Hey guys,

I want to upgrade my OS from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium and I have the Anytime upgrade DVD (provided at the time when I bought my laptop which came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium). Since this is the first time I will ever try to upgrade my OS and I will be paying for it (lol) I wanted to clear a few doubts before I went about it. My current OS is a Deutsch (German) version. I want my new OS to be in English. So my question is -

Will the upgrade process provide me with the option to choose an installation language?

I researched a bit about language packs and if I'm not very wrong, Multiple language packs work only for Business and Ultimate versions but not for Basic and Home premium. Third party language packs like Vistalizator has been reported to work fine but Microsoft doesn't recommend it and some users have reported to have problems where it pops the message " your windows is not genuine".

So should I do an upgrade or just do a clean install with an original Windows 7 Home Premium DVD?

A:Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade

I am not sure about the answer regarding the language pack, but I am sure about the upgrade or the clean install. Do the clean install. A clean install is always preferred over an upgrade. With an upgrade all the old problems that may exist with the OS are just carried to the new installation.
Upgrades often fail, either because of third party software that is not compatible, or malicious software that breaks in the new install.
There are some members that back up their stuff and do a clean install on a regular basis to have the OS run smoothly as the first day. Trust me go with the clean install and enjoy your new OS

Hello Folks, Firstly i would like to appologize if i've post in wrong section or there's a similiar problem posted already, i already search for similiar question but didnt found any. I did some google search, also with no luck.

Here's my story.

I've purchased an Acer Laptop last year, it came shipped with Windows 7 Home Premium and i've been using this OS until now.

I really like this OS, this is the best OS i've ever tried but now i feel like upgrading to Windows 7 Professional x64.

So lets say if i have already purchased a copy of genuine Windows 7 Professional x64, how do i install it? Just insert the Installation Disc, and it shall prompt me with upgrade menu? Or Do i need to boot from CD-ROM and run installation from there?

Lets say if i can just run installation by inserting Installation Disc, and click "Upgrade To Windows 7 Professional", will it 'overwrite' my current documents/User Settings/Themes/Gadgets ?? These settings are important for me, i wish to keep them untouched if possible. This is question 1.

Question 2
What will happen to my previous Windows 7 Home Premium x64 licence if i decided to upgrade? When i bought this laptop, they dont give me any installation disc, so i cant re-install this OS.

Question 3
What will happen to my Ms Office 2010 licence ? As far as i know, once we activate the copy and register at Microsoft, which i already did, It cannot be activated twice.

Question 4

Please advice on the performance comparison between

assuming if both uses the same 8GB RAM.

By the way, how to activate the Windows Aero in Windows 7 Basic???

A:Performance comparison btw. Windows 7 Home Basic versus Home Premium

Hello cheesum and welcome to Seven Forums.

Last question first. This tutorial may help enable Aero. Please note that there is no way to enable transparency on Windows Home Basic.

Aero - Enable in Unsupported Editions of Windows 7

As far as performance, I have not been able to find any specific "speed" tests to say one way or the other.

Difference Between Windows 7 Home Basic and Home Premium | Difference Between | Windows 7 Home Basic vs Home Premium

But if Basic and Home Premium are run on two identical machines (not just identical RAM, but also identical hard drive/hard drive speed, identical CPU, identical programs and apps installed, etc) I would give a very slight performance advantage to Basic simply because it doesn't have the same amount of features that Home Premium has. Fewer features to load usually equals faster performance. But I think any performance advantage would be so slight it wouldn't make any appreciable difference.

I did find some comments comparing Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional.

Of course, others may completely disagree with my thoughts and that's cool. Healthy discussion and debate is welcomed.

I have recently purchased a new Acer Aspire 5535 laptop. It has Windows Vista Home Premium (WVHP) installed.

The computer came with a number of programs that I am not interested in having on my system. In addition, I was not provided a restore disc. I do own a copy of Windows Vista Home Basic (WVHB).

I would like to keep WVHP as I appear to be eligible for an upgrade to Windows 7 . . . but I would like to reinstall to get rid of all these worthless programs. Can I use a WVHB disc with my new WVHP product key?

Could I install WVHB with the WVHB product key, then use the WVHP key supplied by Acer to upgrade?

Thanks for your time in answering my question. I hope it isn't unclear.

Hi, I've been having BSOD problems(I don't actually see a BSOD the power just goes off) ever since I upgraded from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium.

It occasionally happens during start-up or randomly(no specific program or website) at other times. It will also occasionally freeze and then I need to reboot.

I'm new at this and not tech savvy so hopefully I've included all relevant information. If not please be kind.

My System:

32 bit
Original O/S: Vista(came pre-installed)
Windows 7: Upgrade Version
System hardware is about 4 to 5 years old
Age Of Windows 7: I upgraded to 7 about 3 months ago

A:BSOD after upgrading from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium

No DMP included...

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Well to do this you would need two product keys. Since you can only use one key on one installed system, to dual boot two vista OS you would need a seperate product key for each one, if you have two keys all you need are two seperate partitions to install them on.

I am trying to connect to two computers that are connected to a Linksys Router using Remote Assistance on a Vista Home Premium Machine.

You should forward the ports on the router to the IP Addresses of the machines, that you want to connect to. On Symantec PC Anywhere, it is ports 5631 and 32, on Windows remote desktop connection it is port 3389 that needs to be forwarded.

So then I rebooted, pressed F8 at boot. An ran Toshibas recovery to try to get the computer to its out of box state. I got stuck at initializomg (either that or I was impaptient) so I turned off the laptop. Then when I truer to boot I got bootmgr is missing. I have an old vista Hp disk so I installed that for the time being. So my question is, how do I get it back to the original state? I do t have any important data or anything. Please note the laptop didn't cone with recovery disks.

A:Upgrading from Vista Home Premium to 7 home premium?

If you no longer have a working recovery partition and no recovery disks, you may be forced to contact Toshiba and see if they will sell you recovery disks.

You could download an ISO of Windows 7 HP and install from that, but that would just give you a clean install, not return you to "original state".

I was wondering --

I bought Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade when it was 1/2 price in July. I can also purchase Windows 7 Professional through the Ultimate Steal here in Canada.

I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer. I really don't want to do a clean install.

After I do an in-place upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium, can I use the key from Windows 7 Professional to upgrade to that version?

After that, can I then install Windows 7 Home Premium on a friend's computer, using the same key I had originally used on my computer, now that I'm not using Windows 7 Home Premium any more?


A:Upgrade Vista Home Premium --> 7 Home Premium --> 7 Pro

It appears the Upgrade keys are much more flexible than in the past, so it is worth a try at install. The worst is that you would have to use the key that came with the version.

No one I've read knows for sure whether an upgrade deactivates the underlying O.S. key, and MS's own Technet MVP's say it doesn't in case of reinstall need. It violates the EULA, of course, which says the upgraded OS replaces it except for reinstall.

Since upgrade keys are working in clean installs, you might want to try this providing your Vista Premium is retail so that you can migrate it to your friend:

1) Make an image of your Vista Premium install so it can be easily restored.

2) Try a clean formatted install booting from desired Win7 Upgrade version, which should take the key, or require the double "upgrade over upgrade" trick so the key is taken.

3) If this works, you can migrate your retail copy of Vista to your friend's computer, if not just use your backup image to restore it for in place Upgrade.

You will need to make a backup image of the finished job to avoid having to reinstall both OS in the future.

This is the first time I am trying to use the Calendar since I bought this laptop 6 months ago.
I never logged on to the MS store.
The Calendar app came pre-loaded on my pc when I purchased it from Best Buy.

Windows 10 home premium.
Version 1607 (after the latest updates from MS.)
I log on with a local account.

I "left click" on "time of day" in the lower right corner of my screen and I get a pop up calendar.
(So, I'm thinking, "this is good.")
But when I click on the "+" symbol to add an event, the Calendar app tries to start, but then simply disappears.

The same thing happens if I click on the "Start" button and then scroll to "Calendar" and click on it.
It tries to start (A blue Calendar screen appears for a moment) but then disappears.


I did an Internet search and a bunch of folks describe what sounds like a similar issue.
The good folks seem to recommend different fixes.
And some folks say they have not been able to fix the issue.

Couple of questions, if I might ..............
Do I need to be signed into Windows 10 with a MS account in order to run Calendar ?
(I'll bet the answer is no. But I "have" read a couple of "How to use the Calendar app" documents where it says you DO need to use an MS account.)

Has anyone experienced the above issue ?
And if so, has anyone managed to fix it ?

I just got another new computer and it has Vista Home Premium 64 bit on it, being new to Vista I have a few questions. In Programs there are 2 IE explorers, plain and 64 bit. I understand the plain is 32 bit. Can you switch back and forth between them? In program files there are to Program files Plain and x86. Is the plain 64 bit and the x86 32 bit? When Windows Home Premium 64 bit comes new installed what does it default to, 32 bit or 64 bit?

A:Windows Home Premium 64 bit

The reasoning behind the two different Internet Explorers is that Flash players aren't set up to work for 64 bit (x64) systems yet. So there is the 64 bit version, and the 32 bit (x86) version so you aren't completely stuck when you get to a website that requires flash animations. To be safe, so far I have just been using the 32 bit version.

The Program Files folders are separated between the two as well. Programs that are originally 32 bit (x86) will go in the x86 folder. If the program is a 64 bit (x64) it will go into the "Plain" one. Its not that there is a default...your computer will pull from both, depending on what type of program you are trying to run.

I currently have two desktop computers at home.

This computer has windows 7 home premium x64 installed.
I have purchased a w7 pro x64 OEM CD and key, and I want to upgrade this computer to pro.

My question is what happens to my home premium key once I do the upgrade, as I would like to upgrade my second machine running XP, to windows 7 home premium, using the key that is on this computer.

I was told the old key dies with the current machine once I upgrade. I have just spent money purchasing two w7 OS, why cant I re-use it on another machine.

Can someone please advise & enlighten me :P


A:Windows 7 home premium to Pro

The home premium- did it come preinstalled or has been installed using a OEM system builder license? See, OEM licenses whether preinstalled or system builder are tied to the first motherboard they are used on, they arent transferrable.

Feel free to ask.

What can cause this ? can you help me or suggest me what should i do. Thank you !

A:Windows 7 home premium using 1.58 gb of ram

Hello Icarus,

This is normal, and no action is needed on your part.

Windows 7 will load items into memory using superfetch that it thinks you may need to help improve performance. If it doesn't need it, or the RAM is needed for something else, then it automatically gets released so that you are able to use it.

Hope this helps,

I came to my laptop about five hours ago and have not been able to do anything with it since. I had it in hibernate and as I flicked the lid up it shut itself down - I assumed for updates. Nothing happened.

I turned it on, started windows normally as it hadn't shut down properly and waited for the log on screen. It hung on "Please wait" for about five minutes with the circle going round and round and round, then nothing, just the home page no user no password no log on. I turned it off and turned it on again while Google'ing for answers. Seeing as I haven't been able to log in at all a lot of the answers I haven't been able to try, so far I have tried:
to boot normally and end up with the hanging screen.
booting safe mode, it loads files, finishes with \windows\system32\DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.SYS then restarts and I'm back to square one.
booting in safe mode with networking and command prompt - same as above.

OK, came back from out of town and the computer has been running strange.  It has been very difficult to open programs and the internet switchs from being very slow to having a limited connection.  Also, when I restart the computer it will just hang on the restart screen and I have to power off manually. 
I suspected it was some type of virus or malware since the kids had been on the computer without parental supervision.  I ran MBAM and it cleaned about 1100 files.  I will post the file below.  The computer now will come on but still will not restart.  Also, it takes about 5 minutes to show that the internet is connected but even then it is very slow.  Restore from a previous point will not work in regular or safe mode. 
I feel like there are still some majors issues.

Hello All,

The Problem: So I've been having this problem for awhile, probably over a year. It's been getting worse, but it's been so gradual that it took me awhile to really get off my butt and do anything about it. Basically what happens is there's a sudden slowdown in computer performance. For example if I'm listening to a live stream, watching a video, or playing a game it will suddenly all go into slow motion for a few seconds and then return to normal speed. I know it's more of a global problem because I can see it happening with other programs, too. When a web page is loading the load speed may suddenly go very slowly for a few seconds, or even if I'm typing in Microsoft Word I'll keep hitting keys, and the keystrokes will be logged, but no words will appear for a few seconds and then it will suddenly have to catch up.

What I've tried to do: A friend suggested my CPU was overloaded, but I checked my CPU usage and it's always quite low, as in below 50% as far as I've ever seen. Someone else suggested defragmenting my hard drive, which I did using TuneUp Utilities, but if anything that made the problem worse, because now in addition to slowing down sometimes things will just stop for a few seconds, or web pages will time out but when I reload them they work fine. I already had a thread over at the forum that deals with viruses and things, and my computer is free of malware, so it can't be that. Any thoughts?

I have windows 7 home premium with full licence.
Over the past weeks I have been waiting for the Windows 10 icon to appear in the taskbar,But nothing has come.
So today I decided to have a good look into this situation.

First of all I found a Microsoft info on the problem,It was a piece of software called ''Checking Application Eligibility''.
I gave it a run it took a while to determine what was wrong it said that the issue was the KB2952664 update,So I went to uninstall that update then restart then installed that item again another restart.
Ran the Microsoft program once again and the result this time was that the KB2952664 has not been run.

Went to google to see what the situation was there and there was quit a lot of problems regarding this issue,But most of it was confusing me as I'm not very computer technically minded.
So left al alone to see what answers I would have from here.

Please can I have some help on this KB2952664 has not run,Is it that complicated??

Many Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I currently run XP pro on my home PC and I'm wondering which would be the better upgrade choice:

Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Pro?

More details:
I have no domain on my home network (just one desktop, one netbook, one htpc)
The target PC will be used mostly for Web surfing, gaming, some light spreadsheet work, connecting to a work PC, and maybe some dev stuff (probably contained in a VM machine though)
I don't care for the "XP Mode / Virtual PC"
I don't care for the online backup and encryption
the htpc runs Vista Home Premium, the Netbook runs XP Pro; I don't need to 'network' them together very often, but I sometimes do. Would W7 Home help or hinder that?
I VPN/RDP to my work PC - any issues with W7 Home with that?
I read that W7 Home only has the RDP client, not the server - a bit of a bummer but not a deal breaker
How does the W7 Home user account management compare to W7 Pro's? (in the context of a home network, not a domain)
the price difference is obviously a factor (especially with the 50% pre-order deal)

Well, as I noticed under Vista Home Premium, it didn't have local user account management or local security policy in the MMC but the Ultimate version did. If that's what you're asking. My guess is that W7 HP will be the same way. Only Pro or Ultimate will include those features. Though for an extra 50 bucks, that stuff might not be worth it to you.

You can still create users through the Control Panel, and there are always command line and registry hacks to enable lots of the same features without using the MMC.

A:windows 7 home premium for HP x64

Hi: You can only transfer Microsoft retail software from one PC to another. The sticker on your old PC that fried itself is for an OEM operating system. Using an OEM product key on another PC is a violation of the Microsoft OEM licensing agreement. Q. Can my customers transfer or sell their OEM software licenses?A. After an OEM software license has been installed on a PC, the license may not be installed on or transferred to another PC. However, the entire PC may be transferred to another end user along with the software license rights. When transferring the PC to the new end user, the software media, manuals (if applicable), and Certificate of Authenticity label must be included. It is also advisable to include the original purchase invoice or receipt. The original end user cannot keep any copies of the software. Q. My customer bought a new PC and wants to move the OEM software from the old PC to the new one. Can't users do whatever they want with their software?A. No, the OEM software is licensed with the computer system on which it was originally installed and is tied to that original machine. OEM licenses are single-use licenses that cannot be installed on more than one computer system, even if the original machine is no longer in use. The Microsoft Software License Terms, which the end user must accept before using the software, state that the li... Read more

While you can use the easy transfer wizard to import MOST of youR files and settings, it wont give you all of them and may end up in having to be clean installed anyway. there is no way I know of to downgrade like that.

The original OS was Windows XP 32bit SP3. I upgraded this system to Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2 with no issues.

I then went to upgrade the system to Windows 7 Premium. I chose the "Upgrade" install and not the "Clean" install. I've checked the updater to confirm that all my system information was adequate. I uninstalled the ATI Catalyst Controller, iTunes, etc. that it wanted me to. Oddly enough, the ATI Catalyst Controller was the most recent driver that supports Windows 7.

I checked online to see if the hardware was all supported by Windows 7. The Sapphire Vapor-X video card was not compatible or compatible... it simply wasn't on the list of either. The X-Fi Extreme Gamer said it was NOT compatible... yet, I had a driver for... Read more

I've not had the problem, but I have always done clean installs. (You say that people have seen this with clean install, but most of the problems I've seen have been for people performing an upgrade-in-place.)

A:BSOD in Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

If you have Raid > update its Driver.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you c... Read more

Hello, I'm trying to install winows but when it comes to formating Partion 1 to do a custom install, the format option it greyed out and I can only delete it. Is there anything I can do to format it?

My current OS on the computer im stalling to: Linux - Ubuntu 11.10

A:Windows 7 home premium x64 installtion help

Try deleting the target partition, then Create a new one in the same space, Format and click Next.

If Linux is on the other partition you may experience corruption of the boot sector blocking install of Win7. It's much better to have it on another HD unplugged during 7 install.

Hey all

These forums are gnarly in-depth. Love it. Anyway, I have the OEM win 7 x64 on this (my main) comp, and have my old Acer notebook just sitting there with nothing on it except the basic Vista Home Premium x32 on it. I finally just left the thing blank after I did the fifth or sixth Vista crash start all over technique so many times, and just went new with everything. So right after I finished the excitement of seeing the "Preparing Your Desktop"
screen on this comp. I thought, "I'd like to just put it on my other one too." Right? After a bunch of browsing into ten thousand forums, and guides or what not, I still have no true fact that one cannot do it with the same key. It's all a bunch of "yeah you can," or "no way." arguments. Maybe one solid answer on the whole forum. And what if I just dual boot it, and if 7 won't activate, just go back to blankity blank Vista. I had the beta 7 on there too before I wiped it clean this last time. It'd be worth giving away with windows 7 on it. I know computers inside-out. Enough to know it's stupid to just do something, and suffer the result. Further more, My question is, can or can't you
somehow use the 64bit OEM disc and key on one comp, and then use it on your other 32bit, with athlon II x64 CPU, PC? Or does anyone really have a

Thanks, Johnny B

A:OEM Windows 7 Home Premium x64 act on 1 PC, use for old x32 vista too?

You can not use a Lenovo OEM disc on an Acer computer as it is tied to the computer that it was originally installed on... During installation, it will query the BIOS and will know it is a different BIOS than the one it was designed for, and fail to continue... You will need to get a different version of Windows 7 .... Hope this helps.

If I yank the battery and restart I do get the restart windows asking if I want to start normally or do the restore, but then regardless of what we choose, still get only the blue screen.

Hi all, I have a quick question

I am buying a computer without an OS installed beforehand, so I am planning to buy a separate CD for it. However, I am currently living in Korea where only the Korean version of Windows 7 is available ("Windows 7 Home K"). Is it possible, when installing, to set the OS language as English? If not, how would I go about changing the language to English?

I know Windows 7 Ultimate features a language switcher but I'd rather not feel ripped off by buying a "better" and more expensive OS with extra features I have absolutely no need for.

I have given descriptive volume names to all HDD that I have (e.g. "WDGT 250GB OS C Drive" is what it would show for C drive in name column in Windows explorer. However, now I observe that the volume name shows up only when I boot into safe mode. If I boot into normal mode, it only shows as "Local Drive (C". Also, this phenomenon is restricted only to internal drives. External USB drives are shown correctly.

I suspect this has to do with some Windows 7 setting / registry entry as the names do exist properly and also show up in safe mode. Only in normal mode they show up as blank (when I right click and select Properties on the drive letter) and that too only for internal drives only.

Any help to resolve this issue will be greatly appreciated.

I have an HP Envy Touchsmart (m7-j120dx) laptop hat came with Windows 8.1 installed on it. I went through all of the steps to prep the computer so that I could install a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium (OEM) that I purchased through Amazon (Tech-Depot).

The installation went fine and I had all of the Windows 7 drivers that I needed. However, when I went to activate Windows 7, I got the following message; "The Windows 7 Home Premium product key you typed is invalid for activation". I then tried to activate it over the phone but the automated system said the same thing. I even went on Microsoft's website, where you can chat with someone or request a call and both pages were not working. I called Amazon and they're going to send me another copy of the same software to replace it.

I was supposed to have this laptop back to the owner by tomorrow morning. Now I've got to call him and let him know otherwise. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think that Windows 8.1 has anything to do with this or is it just a BAD Product Key?

About three years ago I went from Dell to HP and purchased an extended warranty. I had used Windows
Pro with the Dell, but HP told me I had to use Home Premium or void the contract. It dawned me recently

how to do that blind-folded; why do I need a warranty to cover it? Answer: I don't.
