dv5-1010us Upgrade to Windows 7 sequence question

I have a dv5-1010us notebook running Vista Home Premium. I bought Window 7 Professional and want to upgrade. My question is two parts: (1) Should I upgrade all available drivers to Windows 7 compatible versions before I upgrade the OS or after? and (2) Is there an HP website that shows all the drivers that need to be updated for my notebook model and allows me to download them?

Windows 32 bit drivers:

Windows 64 bit drivers:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=4063&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3753629

 

When upgrading the Operating System to Windows 7, Windows 7 will automatically upgrade the necessary drivers. However, I would suggest you run Windows Upgrade Advisor prior trying the upgrade:
