Update to Windows 7 on a dual boot computer

  1. I currently have Vista and Linux on my computer. I have Windows 7 coming in the mail soon and I would love to update my Vista to that. Do I need to do anything special while installing?

    Windows 7 may require a clean install. Just start the install and Windows 7 should point to the Vista partition. Just select options and delete this partition and continue with the Windows 7 install
