Specs: Windows Xp Home, 2.0 GHZ / 2 GB
I need to change my hard drive to NTFS format to upgrade to windows Vista and
windows 7. It is in FAT32 format right now. How can I do this and keep all
progams and files that I have now and run as they did ?

Programs may not be compatable with later versions of Windows, first point of call is to run the Upgrade Advisor, Windows Vista and 7 are very similar under the hood:

You can't upgrade from xp. You need to format it and then install your new OS.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Copy your documents, mp3's, videos etc. to cd or flash drive. Then copy them back after you install the new OS.

Real men don't use AntiVirus; they just reformat

Hey Jefro. You're wrong on that. I have windows XP pro on my other computer. I upgraded it to windows 7. First I upgraded to windows Vista Business then to windows 7 Proffesional. It can be done as I have done it. All I need to do is change my wifes computer over but I need to have NTFS format to do this not FAT32.

The version of NTFS is different on Windows 7.

Guess you could use a P2V and then run a VM on W7.
