I have an Acer Aspire Timeline notebook 5810tz that came with Vista Home Premium and a free upgrade to Win 7 HP 32bit. I won a new Systmax desktop from TigerDirect that came with XP Pro installed and Win 7 Pro 32 upgrade disk. Can I use the Systemax Win 7 Pro upgrade on my notebook? I don't want to lose the XP Pro. I guess I could maybe install the Win 7 Pro on the desktop and make it a dual boot system but I don't know how to do this. Any body have any suggestions?
First of all, yes you are able to use the win 7 upgrade on the notebook as long as you have the cd key required.
Second, which one would you rather do? Considering you only have 1 cd key set, you will only be able to use windows 7 on either the notebook, or desktop, not both. Respond with which one you would rather have it on so we don't write instructions that you won't need.
