Following are the points you should be aware of while upgrading Windows XP:
- Use the upgrade advisor
- Backup your hard drive
- Avoid using a pirated copy
Use the upgrade advisor
Before upgrading to higher versions, you should first use free Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft , which is an essential tool to download and install OS. It will tell you what steps should be taken before upgrading, which includes whether your computer meets the hardware requirement necessary for new OS, what new drivers you will need etc.
Backup your hard drive
The most important thing that you can take before upgrading is to take backup of your documents, pictures, videos that you don’t want to lose, to an external hard drive or CD. Even if any wrong thing happens after upgrade, you should not worry about loosing your important data. Also take a backup of your Windows XP partition in a portable hard drive for safety concerns.
Don’t upgrade OS from pirated copy. In the end, the money you save by getting an illegal, free copy will not be worth the expense. For upgrades, pirated copies are not eligible. And when something goes wrong with your new OS, Microsoft will not be able to help you. You can also download genuine OS from Microsoft website itself.
