You simply need to boot from the Win7 disk & after the first couple of screens choose the 'custom(advanced)' option - with that you get to format the drive before installing, so removing all traces of Vista.

Very simple:

Restart your machine with your Windows disc in the DVD drive & follow the on-screen instructions for setting up Windows 7.

You may need to make sure that you DVD is first in boot order in your BIOS, since it might not be right now.

As a follow on to this thread, can someone help me with the following question. Doe sit matter if I buy Windows 7 or Widnows 7 upgrade to achieve the same results.

Secondly, I am reading about 32 and 64 bits. Which should I choose and do I buy one or the other or install one or the other form making a choice when installing?

Apologies if these questions seem dumb but I am not a techy and like the original poster I want Vista off completelty from my laptop.

thanks!

Start a new thread for your question. Upgrade will work this way. Use upgrade advisor first. 32bit if you do not need more than 3GB of memory and/or your system is older or more marginal for Windows 7. 64bit if your system is relatively new, fast, and you plan to use 4GB or more of memory.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
