One drive is split between Vista 64 Ultimate and standard XP 32-bit. The other stores my files.
Since buying a complete Windows 7 is expensive, I would like to buy the upgrade to switch Vista 64 to Windows 7. With Windows 7 I will no longer need XP, so I would like to reclaim the hard drive space at the same time.
Is this fairly straightforward? I assume all I need to do is:
- make sure all data I want to save from the OS hard-drive is backed up
- run the upgrade
- use disk management in the new Win7 install to reset the boundaries of the OS partition
... or is there more to it than this? Thanks in advance for your advice!
