Easy XP to Win 7 Upgrade

By ayaz.haniffa ·
Hi - I am investigating a seamless way to to upgrade to WIn 7 from XP. Can someone direct me to some information/paper for doing this in a large scale? I am talking 10000 plus desktop and laptops. Thanks in advance.

In theory, it can't be done.

MS says XP isn't directly upgradeable to W7. You can do it in two steps, upgrading to Vista and then to 7, but you can't get there directly.

I recommend re-imaging systems whenever possible. If you have 10K systems, I assume you have an MS rep. Talk to him about the free tools MS provides for a migration of this scale.

Thanks for the reply, I am going to ask the MS Rep. The place I work, before I start on an endevour, I have to prepare a paper, literally go through a panel to get it approved before the project can be initiated. So have to do my due diligence.
