Windows 7 recommended system requirements:

Upgrade or custom installation?

It is possible to upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows Vista (SP1 or SP2). Older versions of Windows require a custom installation. Read more about Windows 7 Upgrade Paths.

It is recommended that you backup your files before upgrading and this must be done before a custom installation.

For students and faculty/staff with personally-owned computers

For faculty and staff with university-owned computers

New Marquette computers will come with Windows 7. IT Services will not automatically update the current operating system on a computer unless there is a special need or desire. Faculty and staff who choose to update to Windows 7 will need to buy the upgrade using departmental funds, and the PC must meet the minimum hardware configuration.
