If you have the install disc and follow the prompts the old installation will be erased and be replaced by your new installation. I s the "old" machine capable of running Win 7?

I assume you have a full or upgrade copy of Windows 7 and that this system will work OK with it??

By the way. Some computers have a F key at boot that may allow you to return the unit to OEM state. That may be good as it would put specific drivers in.

Anyway, you need a bit of a special install for this. You would need to delete one or more partitions then follow the normal install.
