Due to virus issues and Windows Vista license issues, I'm hoping to upgrade my laptop by first formatting my second partition, installing Windows 7 on my second partition, then formatting the Windows Vista partition.
Are there any issues I might run into by doing it this way? Both partitions are accessible on both operating systems, right?
I'm also wondering if there's any core software I need to run my laptop, or if just the operating system will be enough. I know that enabling "special" keys and touchpad needs separate software, though I don't use those, but anything I'll need to simply run it?
