    I have Messaged Julio directly on clarrification of this
    I too, wonder if a "Test" area is or can be, made available

    I have also asked Moderators to remove these irrelevant posts, from this lengthy thread.

    To be advised

    Precautions on Upgrading an OS

    Hi All :

    I do not recall reading through these Posts that some "Precautions" should be
    taken PRIOR to considering Upgrading an Operating System . From what I have
    read from very knowledgeable people One should be reasonably certain that the
    computer is malware-free AND check with the computer's manufacturer IF there
    are any Updated drivers available to be installed PRIOR to downloading the "new"
    Operating System .
    I found quite interesting the recent article "Don't let XP SP3 hose your system" by
    Scott Dunn and several companion articles in the latest Issue of Windows
    Secrets, available at http://WindowsSecrets.com/comp/080911 .

    Not howto install it
    Which was covered fully on another thread somewhere
