Sorry for the double post, but i couldnt edit the post
I thought it will be helpful to post the specs of my laptop
Hp dv1000 series
1 GB ram
Intel centrino pentium M
2.0 Ghz processor
Intel mobile 915/GMS Chipset (graphics card)
I plan to give it the required 16-18 GB HDD space
Hey, i plan on installing windows 7 on my laptop which currently has xp on it , i already have a key and the iso.
1. I am already dual booting ubuntu and xp, will tri booting cause significant strain on the pc?
2. Can windows 7 damage the hardware of the laptop/ the motherboard/ harddrive and hence essentially 'brick' my laptop?
I dont mind removing windows 7 if its troublesome (constant BSODS) and reverting back to xp.
So, do i have a safe passage from 7 to xp if 7 messes up?
3. How do i remove windows 7 (which i will have to at some point) and reclaim my partitioned harddrive space. Will simple merging partitions work or will the data be lost forever?
4. Because i am running xp on a 4 year old laptop (which, thankfully has never sniffed vista) will i have a driver problem when i upgrade?
You now, just cautious that i dont mess up when installing and some guy in school (stupidly) installed win7 over vista(upgrade) and crashed his graphics card and went on to buy a new pc
