Hello there,

I had installed windows 7 professional a year back. I have been observing from the past few months that the system frequently crashes and i get BSOD's. I have been thinking of upgrading from professional to ultimate. However i dont want to clean instal. I was thinking of doing a inplace ugradation. What i want to know is whether doing so will erase all my user accounts,installed software, movies, games etc?? Another point is that i also have Windows XP installed i.e i have a dual boot. Any help will be really appreciated.

Thank You.

My system specs are

AMD X4 940BE

4GB RAM

1TB HDD

HD4890 1GB Graphics Card.

This is something I do for a living and I know that no matter what, in the end you'll perform your in-place upgrade. :(

I'd strongly (very strongly) suggest you do a clean re-install, instead - your system is not the right candidate for an in-place upgrade (the crashes & BSODs will be carried forward to the new Ultimate OS and manifest themselves sooner than later.)

I'd consider this as a opportune time to learn about backing up individual applications, programs & games apart from the usual data backups that one is used to. ;)

Great advice.

I think you should backup all your stuff and make a clean install.

If your win work like you described then it's most likely that some went wrong during the time and this is right time to refresh system;)

And update drivers also.

Same advise here, backup any data if you have and then make clean installation. Any chance if you have any viruses or registry problems which later on becomes headache, truth me I recently was in your shoes though I had registry problems made my life insane, I had no other choose but to install Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch..

As it has been said above, it´s not a good idea to in place upgrade an unstable system. Backup your data, do a clean install and enjoy. If BSODs and other problems appears again then you´ll know for sure that your hardware has some problem.
