Exchange XP with Windows 7


I successfully installed OpenSuse 11.2 64bit with XP 64bit.

Well what I want to do is to exchange XP with Windows 7 64bit. I read other threads where someone describes that he had a virus on his XP partition and had to re-install XP.
In this case the recommendation was to install XP again and then just repair grub.

Is it really just that easy? I am doubting that things will go so smoothly? I checked the bootloader; does it help to note the settings and re-enter them after the installation?

Appreciate any help and comment.


Easy enough. Just reinstall grub after installing W7

Thanks a lot for the link. Will also write down the current settings just in case.
