Windows 7 upgrade program: HP software and drivers included?

HP Recommended

Hi everybody,

I have a question about the Windows 7 upgrade program, it's not clear to me what the disc I will receive will contain.

I need to replace my laptop and I'm not sure I can wait for the release of Windows 7 on October, 22nd. I know I can get a copy of the new OS but I definitely want to make a clean install and not an upgrade from Vista.

So my question is: will the DVD containing Windows 7 be a customized one for my HP PC, containing also particular drivers and applications by HP or will I lose those apps and customizations when I upgrade? In other words will it be a recovery disc for my specific model with Win 7 instead of Vista or just a disc with Windows 7? I hope it's the first one so I can format my hard drive and replace everything quickly with the new OS.

 

Thanks!
