Upgrading existing PC to Windows 7
"The upgrade process will be anything but simple for the huge base of average consumers still using XP, who likely outnumber Vista users. It will be frustrating, tedious and labor-intensive."

Upgrading to Windows 7 - how?
So, you've decided to upgrade your PC to Windows 7. You've got the installation disks, you've got your faithful, personalized PC. Now what?
Like all of us, you have your machine personalized the way you like it. You've got the apps you need installed and configured. The PC stores your memories, photos, videos, music and documents. Everything your digital life is made of. You don't want to lose this when moving to a new OS.
It used to be pretty hard to preserve your digital assets during the move. Data may be lost - especially if you are using applications not made by Microsoft. Applications may stop working at all on the new system. Moreover, Microsoft provides no way at all to go from Windows XP to Windows 7 - and most of us are still using XP.
And, come to that, how should your new system look? Sticking all your existing data, apps and settings from several years back into a brand new OS is not a good idea - you'll get a limping system, with half of it out of place.
This is where Zinstall comes in.
The Zinstall solution
Zinstall lets you enjoy both worlds at the same time. Zinstall gives you two "TV channels" on your new PC. On one hand, you get your brand new, shiny OS with all the new features, better performance and security. On the other hand, you get your old, familiar system, with all your data, applications and settings, even the icons on the desktop - it looks exactly as it used to on the old PC! You can switch between the "New OS" and "Familiar environment" channels instantly, with one single click.
No questions, no decisions, no hassle - just sit back and enjoy your new system!
