Upgrading OS in Dell® XPS One Desktop
What upgradation can be done in the operating system of the Dell XPS One desktop and what are the things that should be kept in mind while doing so?
The operating system that comes pre-installed in Dell XPS One desktop is Windows Vista Home Premium. You can upgrade the operating system from Windows Vista to Windows 7 in Dell XPS One desktop. The features and applications that are available in Windows 7 are more advanced and user-friendly than the Windows Vista version. Upgrading the operating system from time to time also keeps your machine updated. In some cases, it also enhances the performance of the system on the whole.
However, certain things must be kept in mind while upgrading the operating system from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 in Dell XPS One desktop. They are as follows:
- Keep a complete back up of your data
- Check the compatible software
- Check the compatible hardware and other devices
- Restart the computer after installing the new operating system
Keep a complete back up of your data
Keeping a complete back up of your data is very essential before upgrading the operating system from Windows Vista to Windows 7 in Dell XPS One desktop. Keep a back up of the data in an external hard drive by copying the documents and files to it. This can prevent data loss in any form. After the installation of the new operating system, you can again copy and paste the data in your computer’s hard drive.
Check the compatible software
Checking the compatible software is an absolute must before upgrading any operating system. It is quite possible that any particular software may be compatible with a particular operating system and that it might not run on other operating system. As a result, you must be very sure about the software compatibility in the operating system. However, most software that run on Windows Vista can also run on Windows 7.
Check the compatible hardware and other devices
It is not enough to check the software compatibility only while upgrading your operating system. It is also very important to see if hardware drivers and other devices are compatible with the new operating system that is to be installed in the system after upgradation. If they are not compatible with the new OS, new drivers have to be installed along with the operating system.
Restart the computer after installing the new operating system
To check if the new operating system i.e. Windows 7 has been installed properly in Dell XPS One desktop, you have to restart the system. You have to accept certain terms and conditions before you upgrade the operating system installed on your Dell XPS One desktop.
