Default Upgrade XP to Win 7 - 02-06-2010, 11:10 PM


I have OS X 10.6.2 running with Dual Boot of XP, my question is can I just upgrade to windows 7 by running the startup from DVD after i boot into XP?

My thinking is yes. But you will lose any apps installed in WinXP (there is a tool to save files for later restoration, but you will have to re-install apps in Win7)
