This system may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware and/or a DVD drive to install the Windows 7 software and take full advantage of Windows 7 functionality. See
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/ for details.
Certain Windows Vista product features require advanced or additional hardware. See www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/hardwarereqs.mspx and
www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/capable.mspx for details. Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor can help you determine which features of Windows Vista will run on your
computer. To download the tool, visit www.windowsvista.com/upgradeadvisor.

up all data (files, photos, etc.) before uninstalling and installing operating systems to avoid loss of your data.
This system requires a separately purchased 64-bit operating system and 64-bit software products to take advantage of the 64-bit processing capabilities of AMD technology. Dualcore processing available with AMD technology is designed to improve performance of this system. Given the wide range of software applications available, performance of a
system including a 64-bit operating system and a dual-core processor will vary.
Double-layer discs can store more data than single layer discs. However, double-layer discs burned with this drive may not be compatible with many existing single-layer DVD drives
and players. LightScribe media required and sold separately. LightScribe creates a monochrome image. Note that DVD-RAM cannot read or write to 2.6GB single-sided/5.2 GB
double-sided – version 1.0 media. Don’t copy copy-right protected materials.
