I will be upgrading to win 7 prof 64-bit. I have Vista ultimate x-64 installed. Do I need to download any drivers prior to upgrading and where can I find them??
Also someone commented that I should save my recovery partition. If I do a clean install, won't I lose that partition??
And finally, How do I change the bios to use windows xp compatibility mode???
Thanks so much!!

Thx for the reply. I used the intel check and it does support virtualization so I modified the bios.
I can't use upgrade mode b/c I'm going from ultimate to professional. I have to do a clean install.
Do I need the recovery partition???? How do I leave the recovery partition alone???
