Hello Folks, Firstly i would like to appologize if i've post in wrong section or there's a similiar problem posted already, i already search for similiar question but didnt found any. I did some google search, also with no luck.
Here's my story.
I've purchased an Acer Laptop last year, it came shipped with Windows 7 Home Premium and i've been using this OS until now.
I really like this OS, this is the best OS i've ever tried but now i feel like upgrading to Windows 7 Professional x64.
So lets say if i have already purchased a copy of genuine Windows 7 Professional x64, how do i install it? Just insert the Installation Disc, and it shall prompt me with upgrade menu? Or Do i need to boot from CD-ROM and run installation from there?
Lets say if i can just run installation by inserting Installation Disc, and click "Upgrade To Windows 7 Professional", will it 'overwrite' my current documents/User Settings/Themes/Gadgets ?? These settings are important for me, i wish to keep them untouched if possible. This is question 1.
What will happen to my previous Windows 7 Home Premium x64 licence if i decided to upgrade? When i bought this laptop, they dont give me any installation disc, so i cant re-install this OS.
What will happen to my Ms Office 2010 licence ? As far as i know, once we activate the copy and register at Microsoft, which i already did, It cannot be activated twice.
Application like Egistec - WinLocker, NTI Backup Now, ( Softwares Bundled ) i'm wondering if they still can be used after upgrade? Will the licence valid?
Thanks so much for your feedback, it'd be greatly appreciated. And sorry for my broken english
