He needs to download the install ISO from Microsoft. If he has not done so yet he needs to register with Microsoft to obtain his licensing key. This is a DVD disk image he will need to burn this to a blank DVD using Nero or IMGBURN. Next back up all of his important data if its on the OS drive and not on a separate drive. Reboot the computer with the windows 7 DVD in the computer and install.

Here’s a link to the installation instructions http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7...structions.aspx. Also, Amazing Andrew also posted a good installation guide on these forums as well: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/225025/windows-7-release-candidate-download-available/.

Hope these help.
