This one works! Paul's site is awesome, by the way.
Backup your stuff before attempting any sort of upgrade. There are only two types of people: Those who have lost data, and those who will.
Whether you use an external hard drive or CD's/DVD's, make a backup.
Here is a site that offers a free backup software: AceBackup. This is for a local backup only.
Here is a site with good reviews on the various online backup services: Online backup service reviews 2009

What a pain in the ass.
My upgrade to Snow Leopard ran with zero problems, none of this windoze crap
After running Windoze7 for a while, it may lead you to the Mac, since that's what they appear to be ripping off.

Good catch. This is the way I may go from Vista 64-bit Ultimate.

Thanks for the post. I haven’t had to do this, but I was wondering how if I had to. I have some computers I might use this on.

How about I just stick with XP.
Of course, I do still have to install my new powersupply. I have to say this, I LOVE Corsair. I have a w750t beast, that I have had to replace twice. BOTH times, Corsair has shipped me a new one ASAP. No second guessing nothing. Just got me a new one. Of course my posting of the diesel sounding power supply on start-up likely helped. A Power supply that sounds like a Diesel is NOT a good thing.
That being said, I would rather dig int he guts of my PC reinstalling and reconnecting a Pwer Supply than to try and install win7 over my XP installation. I might never get back online again and would likely have to f-disk the whole damned thing. (BARF)

But they promised that this OS wouldn’t have the problems that Vista had. Well, technically, I guess they are right. It has whole new problems.
