- Proper running of 'Upgrade Advisor'
- Keep proper drivers
- Back up of all the necessary files
Proper running of 'Upgrade Advisor'
To check the compatibility of Windows 7 higher editions with the system, Windows provides a software called 'Upgrade Advisor'. This software would compare all the system specifications with the system requirements needed for the new edition. Once the checking is completed, this would also provide the correct report related to the scanning process. You need this proper checking by the Advisor software to ensure the compatibility of the system.
Keep proper drivers
The existing drivers in the system might not be compatible with the new edition of Windows 7. Therefore, you need to keep the proper drivers for the new edition. After upgradation, you need to install those drivers for the proper working of the Operating System. Without the proper drivers, the new Operating System could not recognize any of the devices in the system.
The backup of the files in the system is also to be kept before the upgradation. Windows 7 provides an option to move the files in the system to some other storage place during the upgradation. By using that option, you could save all such files.
