    Hi
    Please be gentle as this is my first post here ...
    Ok i have the XPS 1730 with genuine Vista Premium
    Its only maybe 10 months old at the most so can i just upgrade to Win 7 or should i do a clean install .
    I do have Win 7 Ultimate running on my other 2 older pc's and its activated fine with no problems yet .
    Will it activate on the Dell as i have seen some posts with problems with Dells.
    Obviously i would like to have Ultimate on the XPS as well but should i try the upgrade first to keep my files and programs intact .... this is my main pc so i would prefer not to f*** it up :)

    Thanks in advance

    I hav'nt done anything to my XPS yet , no modded bios etc.
    I would be terrifed of bricking my main pc .

    i modded mine
    check the instructions on xpsm1330 site
    i asked for a modded bios.gz M1730 into the dell request part to add it to my page.
    if u want to mod u'll find all u need.
    u can try the windows flasher for your M1730 but i personally prefere using directly the dos way.
