    I've tried it, and it works!
    Looks like it can't be done from XP, is that true?

    You can not upgrade from XP to W7. You can only upgrade from Vista to W7. W7 requires a clean install if you are using XP.

    Sorry, i didn't explain myself, what i was asking is it looks like (from the link) that to setup a thumb-drive to load W7, you have to do it from within Vista -setup the thumb drive that is!

    HiJack is correct, upgrade is only available for Vista SP1 and later.

    Nevertheless, it's always best to get rid of the clutter and start off with a clean install for reliability.

    The link you posted is very good, thanks. It shows how to setup a thumb-drive to load W7 from it; in that how-to i saw this: "Note: This guide will only work within Windows Vista."

    What i understand by that is that it will be impossible to setup the thumb-drive unless it's done on a computer running vista - is that correct?

    You said you tried and it work; did you setup the thumb-drive on a vista computer?

    i have used imageburn and it worked the first time

    i wouldnt install windows 7 over your current OS since its only a 4 months trial license

    you should make a partition on your HDD and install it on there and you will have the option to choose which windows you wanna boot when you turn on your computer, thats what i did

    My windows 7 download was 2.4 GB - I downloaded the complete new install version - maybe you'd have better luck with that.

    Negative on the first question. No, I did it in XP.

    My thumb drive works to install Windows7, and will also install Windows XP from it.

    Look for a thumb drive boot program called "Komku-SP-usb" and work with it from within the command prompt. I loaded my SATA drivers on the thumb drive together with XP pro SP3 without a CDROM or floppy disk, and commenced to doing the installation. Komku is fantastic!
