I never say 100% no. Anything could happen. That's why you should always make a backup before messing with partitions. Good luck.

Besides the need to increase the partition size, going from XP to Win7 shouldn't affect the other partitions.
There isn't a choice during the Win7 setup. I'm not sure what you're asking.

Yes there is a hidden partition created, but that doesn't mean the boot partition can be GPT.
I've had to revert several Win8 systems to Win7. In most cases, I've had to disable secure boot and...

No. The boot partition for Win7 must still be MBR. For Win8, you can use GPT.
Try reverting a Win8 OEM system to Win7. You'll see. Did you look at the link I posted earlier?...

If the partition is less than 2TB, you don't need to use GPT. You can still use AHCI with MBR.

No. It's not. GPT is one of the common problems when trying to install Win7 on a system that came with Win8.

The boot partition still needs to be MBR for Win7. Minitool supports GPT.
Why do you have to use GPT? You'd only need that for partitions larger than 2TB.

Minitool is another one. Not sure if it will do what you want, but it says it supports UEFI disks. There is a bootable CD option.

The free version is only good for 1GB.

Depends on how damaged you mean. Freebies might not cut it, but here are a couple.

You can run Libreoffice without Java. Certain things won't work, but it's not absolutely required.

CPU cache is the first memory the system will look for data. It would not be affected by the 32-bit limit.
Virtual memory is used when you run out of physical memory. It's more that you only have...

CPU Cache is so small that it wouldn't make a difference. The CPU Cache is the fastest in the whole system, so you'd want to leave that on.
I wouldn't disable VM. That would not help the...

Unless you have a very specific reason, go 64-bit. Like SRJ mentioned, memory support is a crucial factor.

You need to give more info about the wifi network.
What is the make/model of the router? What encryption are you using? Is SSID broadcast enabled?
Are you running XP SP3? Is the wifi card...

Make sure you install Flash for Plugin browsers. It's separate from the IE installer.

What is the "different" card model?
You can use GPU-Z to identify the card:
What model was the old card? More ram doesn't necessarily mean a...

Unfortunately, you'll need to set up the drive on an UEFI motherboard. Linux won't help you get around the BIOS.
Also XP doesn't support...

Hmm. Not sure if there's a tool to check data files. SFC checks windows files.
You could try opening the directory in Faststone or another image viewer. If the thumbnail doesn't show, then you...

chkdsk should have said "F: is NOT dirty". It's just a one line answer.
What file system are you using for F:? FAT32 or NTFS?
Anything is possible. If it stopped scanning and passed diags, i...

Drive letter is the letter of the drive you want to scan. In your case, it would be F:
fsutil dirty query F:
Make sure to run it from a command prompt window.
