    Hi,

    I've got an Acer 5738 with Vista on it. When I bought it, it said I could get a free upgrade for W7 but I never bothered at the time.

    Has anybody got an iso image of the disk? Given it's an upgrade, would I still need a key for it?

    My other option is a Microsoft Action Pack W7 disk, but I wonder whether this will be more of a fresh install and not have all the right drivers.

    Any thoughts before I go about this?

    I just upgraded a friends Acer laptop last week from Vista to Win7 with the Acer official upgrade disc.

    This disc is just a bog standard Win7 upgrade disc AFAIK but with Acer branding rather than MS, so you do need a Win7 upgrade license key to use it.
    Also the 'free' upgrade disc had to be bought (cost £20 IIRC to cover postage and handling costs :rolleyes: ) and was only available for a limited time from Acer. So if you now want to upgrade I think you would need to buy a Win7 upgrade from your retailer of choice.

    Mark.
