I have an Ideapad S10e with 2gb memory and 40gb of free space on the hard drive. I would like to ask assistance on installing Windows 7 over XP without taking of Splashtop.
1. Can I copy my Windows 7 installer on C:\Windows7 and run setup.exe from there?
2. I read that it is better to have a clean install than in-place upgrade. Would my 40gb free space be sufficient?
3. Will the whole operation affect the Splashtop as still want to dual boot with Linux which came with the unit and I don't want to go through the hassle of re-imaging my drive.
4. Lastly, I still want to make sure I can use F11 to recover everything back to factory default.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
