dont just install windows 7 from vista or xp.. without drivers
atleast you must get Ethernet Controller driver or Wireless driver for windows 7 from where do you connect internet...
no internet == no drivers for windows 7...
just goto device manager & check out what network card is installed. what model number, search for windows 7 driver, & then install Windows 7. Vista network drivers may work on windows 7 as well, but you just need to install it forecfully (manually).
Once the windows 7 is installed, then install network drivers....go online
(if you are lucky, network drivers will be installed by windows 7 itself)
now its time to install all other remaming drivers,
goto control panel>>open system>>Find Advanced system settings to left panel>>then system properties will open>>goto hardware TAB>>open device installation settings>>choose yes do this automatically>>
thts it all remaming drivers will be downloaded & installed automatically from Microsoft.com, once you are online.......not necessarily microsoft has all you devices drivers.
