Microsoft Makes Upgrading XP Netbooks To Windows 7 Much Easier
- 1 Comment
The OS maker will add a tool to its online store to allow those who buy Windows 7 to boot it from a USB drive to upgrade the machine. Chris Flores, in an interview explained that he thinks this is the best solution:
“There are lots of XP Netbooks out there. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for the enthusiasts that want to do this.”
The tool is available TODAY – the release date of Windows 7.
One difficulty with the plan is that it requires users to tweak BIOS to boot from the USB drive, which must also have 4 GB of space available.
