I plan to install Win7 Home Premium 64 bit on my Pavilion Elite m9040n when the final Win7 product is released in October. What drivers will I need other than those provided by Win7 and how do I find them? I will clean install Win7 on the drive which currently has Vista Home Premium 32 bit. Bios already has most recent update offered by HP.
If you wanted to install the Windows 7 through the upgrade program from hp then the product has to be purchased from June 26, 2009 to January 31, 2010, and factory-installed with one of the following operating systems may be eligible for an upgrade to Windows® 7:
Windows Vista® Home Premium,
Windows Vista® Business, or
Windows Vista® Ultimate
And you can request for the same in the link below :
I do not qualify for the upgrade program. This will be the full retail package and not the upgrade. My question still remains--what drivers will I need other than those provided by Win7 and on the HP download site? If other drivers are needed, how do I determine what they are and where to get them? Could someone review the specs on the pc and let me know?
