Re: Win 7 upgrade program - delivery updates

Why the delay in shipping this upgrade??  The release date was not a surprise and this was expected to be one of the biggest releases for the PC market in years - VERY DISAPPOINTING!  Lenovo gets a D for customer service.

Both of my orders have black bars replaced with Pending For Fullfillment. What's this mean are we starting over? Or is it a prelude to some kind of shipping notice?

Re: Win 7 upgrade program - How to go from XP to Windows 7

2009-11-02, 0:44 AM

When I received my SL500, Cp Pro... which comes with Windows Vista Business and XP Pro,  I ordered it with XP Pro,  with the Visa Business upgrade Disks,,,,,,,

 

So, as it's now on XP Pro, does anyone definively know how I go about upgrading it to Windows 7?

Do I have to use my supplied Visa disks to first upgrade it to Vista before upgrading to Windows 7?

 

Many thanls

Well at least you guys are getting some changes on your order status. I'm still at the pending for payment and pending for deduction stage. Hahahahah! Hopefully by the 16th it'll change.

If I ever get mine. I'm going to try a clean install on a different hard drive using the Windows 7 upgrade disc.

I have not received my upgrade disks yet either and I put in my submission in late August.  I have a Thinkpad T400s.  I also experienced the No Payment --> waiting for fulfillment ---> the black bar ----> and now back to Awaiting Fulfillment.  I hope some communication comes out soon to give us some indication about what to expect.

Backup your data and do a clean install of Windows 7.  Boot from the Windows 7 DVD and use the "Custom Installation" option.

 

You will have to reinstall all your programs but it will be worth it, IMO.  Upgrading XP to Vista, and then Vista to 7, sounds like a nightmare waiting to happen.

Will we get a new key with the Windows 7 upgrade, or can we use the same key that came with Vista?
