I do not think you can go from 2000 to 7, you may have to have XP or Vista

You will need to do a "clean install".

Therefore you must:

1. back up to and external source (drive / usb stick /DVDs) all your documents photos and emails.

2. check you have the install CDs / files and product / serial numbers for any software you wish to reinstall on W7 (also check compatibilty of programs with W7)

3. check any peripherals (printers / scanners /cameras /phones have w7 drivers available for them.

4. Set the machine to boot from DVD and let the setup for W7 format the partition before installing W7.
