How can I convert my Windows XP to win 7?

I got an old laptop from 06 and now I want a 7 but I'm too stupid to figure out how to set it up and what drivers I need. I still have a Chromebook and a cell phone. I read that you have a PC You can do it without it, even if so, how can you make such a USB stick



------------------------

That's exactly what I tried. What works is the graphics driver from the laptop, which was with WINXP. At least that was the case with Fujitsu Siemens. Otherwise, the drivers were included with Windows 7. As I said, the older ones could work on the laptop. I have a DVD drive in the laptop. And therefore Win7 was burned to DVD. Bios set to priority "DVD drive". Now it starts from the drive with WIN7. Formatted and Installed.



------------------------

I can confirm that. If you install Windows 7 on a system that is older than the release-Date of Windows 7, all drivers are usually present or installed.



------------------------

You need a boot stick or a DVD with Windows 7 on it and a valid key. Then you have to change the boot order in the BIOS to the installation disk and install the operating system.

Have you ever thought about Linux? Then you don't have to buy a key.



------------------------

Yes, I read that the laptop no longer works properly



------------------------

Yes, Linux probably won't work properly! I also had Linux on my first laptop and couldn't get along at all! Then I bought Windows 7 from the electrical retailer and, with the help of the expensive support, formatted the laptop and installed Windows 7!



------------------------

Maybe consider installing an emulator on the device, then maybe you can play older games too!



------------------------

Upgrading from Windows XP to 7 is not free. You need a valid Windows 7 license key. In addition, there is no longer any support for Windows 7. Current web browser versions also no longer run on Windows 7.

The only thing that would work would be to install Bodhi Linux. This is an Ubuntu-based distro that is designed to save resources. It requires only half as much system resources as Windows XP. Here are the downloads:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/bodhilinux/files/5.1.0/bodhi-5.1.0-legacy.iso/download If the laptop has less than 4GB RAM. https://sourceforge.net/projects/bodhilinux/files/6.0.0/bodhi-6.0.0-64.iso/download If the laptop has 4GB RAM or more.

Then iron the ISO onto an empty FAT32 formatted stick using this tool https://unetbootin.github.io/ and then boot it. Then Bodhi startsLinux in live mode. You can then start the installer from live mode. Once the installation is complete, you will restart and your system is ready. You can install programs via the Bodhi AppCenter. For example Firefox, VLC Player, LibreOffice and much more.

If you can't boot from USB, there is a solution: The Plop Boot Manager Six. This is a boot CD that contains a USB bootloader. This makes it possible to boot from USB. Download here: https://download.plop.at/pbm6/pbm6-test-20221118.zip

Then unpack the zip and go to the 1_native folder. Then into the cdrom subfolder. Then burn the file pbm6.iso onto an empty CD using this tool http://www.freeisoburner.com/.

Then plug in the Bodhi Linux stick you created, insert the burned CD and boot from the CD. Then something that looks something like this will appear:

Then you can boot the stick and continue as usualn.



------------------------

I'm actually sure that there are still current browsers for Windows 7. An example would be Firefox... Nevertheless, it is not advisable to use Windows 7. Your instructions here are really great.



------------------------

Windows 7 is completely outdated and no longer supported by Microsoft.



------------------------

Yes, the question is how can I make such a USB stick or CD



------------------------

Pull the iso from the internet and then burn the iso to DVD.



------------------------

Yeah, the problem is I don't have a DVD

------------------------

Well I just don't know how to set up this piece because the internet on the 70's is bad and so I have the fileit is not shown to me



------------------------

You must create the USB installation stick on a current PC.
