    Is it mandatory to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 in Acer Aspire 5520-5912 before going for Windows 7 upgrade? Will it not work directly with fresh Windows 7 installation?

    I heard that it’s not possible for me to install Windows 7 in my Acer Aspire 5520-5912 laptop where in if I wanted too I have to install first the Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and then upgrade to Windows 7 installation. Is it so? Why we have to do like this? Is there any other way to install WIndows 7 directly to my laptop?

    No, it is not mandatory for any computer user to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for installing Windows 7 in PC.

    You can also directly install Windows 7 in your PC.

    Firstly, insert Windows 7 Installation Disk and then format your C: drive.

    Now, install Windows 7 by following given instructions.

    In this way, Windows 7 OS will be installed successfully without installing Windows Vista Service Pack 1 in PC.

    Hi,

    Your enquery in the matter related installation of Windows7 into the system which has windows vista without SP1, let me assure you that it is not mandetory for you to install SP1 inorder to install Windows 7, as SP1 is a pack offered by microsoft who knows the shortcomings of Windows Vista and its bugs, and offer help to remove those bugs.but you wish to move foprward to something called WINDOWS7 which was written keeping the shortcomings of Windows Vista and is generations ahead. so every lack and lag of Vista is addressed by the superior Windows 7. Who cares for SP1?

    Go and procure a copy of original WIndows 7 and install it and enjoy life.
    Thanks.
