Can use some help. I am helping a friend upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I have backed up all the data from the Vista computer but when I choose the computer to boot from the Windows 7 Disk it sits for awhile and then goes back into booting Windows Vista. The computer is a HP with plenty of resources. I would think it should at least boot into the Windows 7 Installation Disk. For some reason it doesn't.
I do have a external drive that I can use. Can I copy the contents of the Windows 7 installation disk and then use the installation files that I copied to install Wndows 7.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
