Updating windows vista to windows 7

This "Choose What to Keep" screen is new to Windows 8 and a departure from previous Windows install routines.

The choices you see here are dependent on the current installed operating system.

A complete discussion of "Choose What to Keep" screen options and availability is located here.

Because this is an upgrade installation of Vista w/SP1 you get to choose what to keep from the current installation.

Because this is a Vista to Win 8 full migration there is no option to keep any applications.
