Upgrades Required On Windows XP
The upgrades on Windows XP are needed because users are constantly looking for more and more sophisticated tools. The Windows XP updates for a particular edition can be made available through the Windows update option. Windows XP can also be upgraded from Windows XP® Home edition to the Windows Professional, before finally going in for the latest version of the Windows 7. All versions of the Windows XP are available in one CD pack.
System Requirements And Version To Be Installed
There are two options to install Windows 7 on a computer system having Windows XP. You can either uninstall Windows XP and then install Windows 7; or by upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7. The latter is the best option, as it would help saving your files and folder on the computer system safely without having any need of taking a backup of all the files. For up-gradation, the user needs to know the system requirements for the particular version of the Window 7(32-bit or 64-bit). If the Windows XP does not match the upgradation process, the user can still install the Windows 7 version through the custom installation options. This requires you to take a back up of all the important files that can be restored after installation. You can only upgrade the 32-bit version of Windows XP to the 32-bit version of the Windows 7 and not to the 64-bit version of Windows 7.
After the newer version of the Windows has been upgraded from Windows XP, the updates for the Windows 7 need to be downloaded via the Internet. This includes all the antivirus programs, the Windows 7 installation package and all the drivers that need to be installed for the proper functioning of the computer system.
