    I have an original copy of windows 95, I later purchased a windows 2000 upgrade. Can these be upgraded to windows 7 or do I need to purchase a full version?

    Only XP & Vista qualify for upgrade pricing.

    But you can install the upgrade version as a new installation.

    I take it you aren't proposing to try and run Win 7 on hardware originally running Win 95/upgraded to Win 2000?

    I agree with "Stuck", the hardware is most likely not supported by Windows 7.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I suspect if he succeeded in deleting a few OS files and installing Windows7 -- his PC will not run W7 as he supposes.
    My history of trying a few applications [and/or utilities] has me "redacting" back to a previously Ghosted-image and installing an older application or utility version.
