If you completely remove 7 you will lose all settings, such as DSNs, mappings, ect. The version 7 and version 8 XML files that store these settings are not compatible so you can not just copy them over .

If you are comfortable manually re-entering all these settings after the install, that may not be a big deal.

You may be able to use the CAR (ColdFusion Archive) export/import if you are on the enterprise edition and|or can downgrade the license to the developer license for the transfer. But I have never done that cross versions.
