HP Recommended
pavilion 6107
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I have an old pavillion p6107c pc that came with vista and I got a win7 upgrade from hp.  I wanted to install a clean win7 install NOT an upgrade but everything I try it complains that the hardware is not supported and aborts the install.   Any suggestions?

Weird.

HP supplies device-drivers for 64-bit Windows 7.

 

From: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01742891

your computer was originally shipped with "Windows Vista Home Premium with Windows Media Center (64-bit) with Vista Service Pack 1".

 

Your computer greatly exceeds the "minimums" for 64-bit  Windows 7 (1.0 Ghz, and 2  GB RAM).

 

Any information on which component triggers the error-message?

 

Is it possible for you to find a friend with a  "retail" copy of Windows Vista 64-bit, and install it?

(Note that *ALL* the versions of Vista (Basic, Home, Professional) are on the same DVD disk.

Just do not enter the 25-character product-key.

Then, rerun the HP Windows 7 installer.

 

Or, since you have a license-key for Windows 7, you can download the software, and use your license-key.

Access the HP Support web-site to add all the device-drivers for the HP-specific hardware.
