(I documented this process in How to Clean Install Windows Vista with Upgrade Media.) When it comes to performing a clean install of Windows 7 using Upgrade media, there's no simple answer.
For some people, it just works, and I'll provide information here so you can help ensure it just works for you, every time.
And that's what this article is all about: Revealing the secrets to clean-installing Windows 7 with Upgrade media. In older versions of Windows, Microsoft would actually prompt you to insert an install floppy or CD from a previous Windows version, to prove that you qualified for the upgrade version.
But beginning with Windows XP, PC makers were able to dramatically change the Windows install disc, so much so that, in some cases, those discs weren't even identifiable as valid install media to Windows Setup. In Windows Vista, Microsoft supported in-place upgrades from Windows XP, but if you wanted to use an Upgrade version of the Windows Vista Setup disc to do a clean install, you had to perform a weird double install trick.
Finally, make sure you have 1 to 2 hours free to run the install. The tool will take a while to download the software so be patient, particularly if you have a slow Internet connection.
Though you can walk away for large portions of the process, you can expect all the downloading and file copying to take at least 60 minutes and, in our case, closer to two hours on a fast Internet connection. After it downloads, the software also goes through a preparation process and downloads some more files, all of which takes time, perhaps as long as an hour even on a high-speed connection.
To install Windows using a CD, you'll need to insert the setup CD into the CD drive, boot up your computer, then press a key to start the setup process when prompted.
From there, continue following the on-screen prompts to finish installation.
If you recently stopped using Windows XP, then please share your experience in the comments below.
You’ll find the pertinent information on the System and Display tabs.
With this noted, compare your current components to the requirements for Windows 7 or requirements for Windows 10.
First up, let's define what it is I'm describing.
For purposes of this discussion, a clean install--or what Microsoft calls a custom install--is when you boot your PC with Windows 7 Setup media (typically a Setup DVD, but with this version it could also be a specially created, bootable USB memory device containing the Setup bits) with the intention of installing just Windows 7 on the PC.If you have slow or inconsistent Internet, you should go to some place that has a strong connection and follow the instructions for creating a USB install disk you can use at home.
