So i have a 60GB NTFS partition on my macbook pro with Windows XP installed on it. I mainly want to increase the size of the partition, i reckon i need 80-90GB total for windows. I figured i may as well upgrade to 7 while doing this, now i am aware i cant directly upgrade to 7 from XP, so what are my options regarding installing windows 7 and backing up my entire XP OS and then adding it to 7. Will it be as good as OSX and time-machine, where the computer (after a restore from hard-drive) is exactly how it was the day you backed it up. I have lots of windows applications and pieces of software i have bought that id like to be able to continue to use without having to contact software provider begging for new serial code/buying again. Cheers for taking the time to read this: Cliff note -i want to upgrade bootcamp partiition from XP to 7 -how i do it (DL and burn disk image??) -backing up XP OS, how?? can i fully restore my XP OS in 7??
