The procedure was quite reconciled over the past two months, so the upgrade should work. But, as always before:
you should back up your data before upgrading;
If you upgrade your laptop (notebook), then connect to the network! You may need to update more than 2000 packages, and it may take some time;
Do not allow any network-intensive applications traffic during the upgrade process, because You need to reserve enough bandwidth for the update.
There are several ways to go with one of these previous releases on Magenia. Main:
Download the ISO and burn it to DVD;
Boot from the DVD and vyberat item "Set Mageia 1" in the boot menu;
Select the "upgrade" in the installer.
It is recommended to connect the online repository, unless of course it is possible - the installer will ask you about this during the upgrade. The reason for the desirability of the connection that the DVD includes only a portion of the total online repositories Mageia.
