It just upgrades the windows folder and keeps other programs and application intact. You can even install Windows in custom mode. It replaces current version of operating system on your system and also all the files, applications unlike upgrade menu. Thus, it is also referred as clean installation as it completely cleans your system to install fresh copy of Windows. You might face difficulties in installation and reinstallation of operating system. This article enlists the solution for the troubles.

Now as you are ready with installation, before you begin you must first check for product key. It can be found inside the disk holder or in a confirmation mail.


If the computer is connected to the network, you have to write down name of computer after installation is finished.

To keep back copy of files is the only way to retrieve whole data. Application programs can be reloaded using set-up files and product keys. Windows 7 does not include ‘Windows Mail’ and ‘Outlook Express’. Thus you have to depend on other e-mail reader after installation.

You must also note that programs designed to run on 32-bit version, do not run on 64-Bit. Another way of custom installation erases files not only from partition in which OS is being installed but from other partitions also. Again, Backup is the only solution for retrieval of data. When you have computer with no other OS in it, installation can be done in standard way which is to insert disk in system and follow instructions. To install 64-Bit, your computer must satisfy some basic hardware requirements like 4GB RAM and then you can install it. Otherwise it may create software and hardware issues.

Reinstallation comes into play when operating system shows error indicating missing of a file or any important driver. Advance Recovery menu will let you chose from two options viz. recovery image or installation disk. Recovery image can be obtained from computer manufacturer. If Windows doesn’t respond at all then you have to use installation file and use custom installation for recovery.
