How to Fix Windows 7 Upgrade Problems

However, OS upgrade is not always a pleasant task to perform due to the complexities and risks involved, especially, when you have to upgrade from older version to Windows 7.

5. Ensure that you correctly type your product key without making typo errors. If you still get the same invalid key error, then visit the Microsoft website and check whether you have an original key. If it’s a pirated key, you will have to buy a new key. If the key is original, then you must have either Vista or XP installed on your hard disk drive during the boot time. This may also require you to perform a fresh installation of Vista or XP before installing Windows 7.
7. To upgrade from earlier versions such as Windows 95, 2000, you will need to buy a full version of Windows 7 and do a custom installation.
