Is Vista SP1 and other Vista updates necessary before upgrading to Windows 7?
Is Vista SP1 necessary or recommandable before upgrading to Windows 7?
Many people these days is upgrading from Windows Vista preinstalled on the
PC to Windows 7. In case of a complete recovery it's necessary to reinstall
Windows Vista and then upgrade to Windows 7 (if you have bought an upgrade
and not a complete Windows 7 version).

Yesterday I did a complete recovery and did a reinstallation of Vista
Premium.
After installation of Windows Vista I have so far done approximately 100
Windows Vista updates and is now continuing with SP1.

I have a Windows7 upgrade and plan to upgrade Windows Vista to Windows 7.
Could I had saved time upgrading directly from Windows Vista in the original
edition without all the other updates before upgrading to Windows 7, or was,
and is it correct to take this detour?

Hi, MAT.

All that is required to qualify for the upgrade is to have a qualifying
system installed and activated. It is not necessary that the qualifying
system be up to date - or even bootable.

You do not have to have it activated.

Thanks!
Using a laptop with pre-installed Windows Vista and upgrading to Windows 7.
Next time a complete recovery is necessary I'll save a lot of time going
directly from recovery to Windows 7 upgrade, Besides I plan to make an
image backup. Know it's not the right palce to ask, however many is
upgrading these days needing a complete backup before upgrade to Windows 7.
Any pro/cons Norton Ghost 15.0 http://www.symantec.com/norton/ghost versus
