You will find that it is usualy better to save any wanted data that's
requuired later, and that can be done with Ghost (latest version ) to an
External, "Drive to Drive" copy, providing you have the room on that drive,
If your Upgrade is going to be substancial, you could find that your
existing O/S will not boot up to all the new Board setting Etc:
So you could have to reinstall from scratch, if you have an existing CD Disc
for Windows with an apropriate ID: number, there no problem useing that
again, and aslo all the reqired Install Cd's for your appliances, sometimes
better to pull all cards ( if used) and install one after the other, when
Windows has been installed, so that it picks up on each one in turn..
