I was wondering when HP sends out the Windows 7 upgrade disc will it come with a Seperate Upgrade Media disc that contains all your system's drivers for Windows 7? You know like it will have your sound card, video, wireless, fingerprint reader drivers designed for Windows 7?
Also when you get the Upgrade Disc will there be an option for a clean install. I mean of course Vista will be installed already but can 7 erase your data and install fresh? Thanks
P.S. Is the onboard Sound Card on the HDX16t IDT or Realtek?

I currently work on behalf of HP for numerous support departments. The opinions expressed above are the personal opinions of myself, not of HP. There is no guarantee that the opinions expressed are 100% correct.

You've got IDT audio drivers.
Vista drivers should work for You under Windows 7.
Vista 32 bit -> Win 7 32 bit
Vista 64 bit -> Win 7 64 bit
How to find audio drivers for Your model on HP site?
1. Click on Support & Drivers link. (Upper part of this page.)
2. Choose option: Download drivers and software (and firmware)
3. In form:
provide Your p/n number. (How to find correct p/n informations here.)
4. Click on Go and choose Your correct system.
5. If You don't want to do this on and on just add this link to Your favourites links in Your browser.

OK, so you are in fact confirming that the HDX 16t comes with IDT sound? Is that better than Realtek? My last HP notebook which was a DVD6500t had sound stuttering issues with Realtek.
Anyway, if HP doesn't include a driver disc will I be able to look my system up and see the Windows 7 OS listed, where I currently see Vista and Vista 64 bit listed? Of course once Windows 7 is out on Oct 22.

I think then realtek have better support then IDT.
After Oct 22 there should be drivers for Your model on HP site for Your model.
