nvidia drivers - windows 7

HP Recommended

I seem to be unable to perform a clean install of Win 7RC on my HP Pavillion 6500f. It freezes up during the "Completing Installation" section. As far as I have been able to determine, it is a problem with the nvidia drivers. I tried several things, but I don't know how to slipstream the new drivers into the installation.

 

Pentium E2220 (C) 2.4 GHz (65W)
  • 800 MHz front side bus
  • Socket 775
NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i
Motherboard
  • Manufacturer: Foxconn
  • Motherboard Name: MCP73M01H1
  • HP/Compaq motherboard name: Napa-GL8E

 

What I am wanting to know, will the final release of Windows 7 include updated drivers so that I can upgrade from Vista? Will things be added now that the RC has come out?

Nvidia have a very good driver support for their GPU's and motherboards, even for very old ones. So i'm sure that a Windows 7 driver will be released.

 

I have a GeForce 8600 GT GPU manufactured by XFX, and after installing RC1, all i had to do was a windows update, and it automatically installed the driver for me. The GUI window for making advanced changes is missing, but i'm able to use Aero completely without any issues, and I also played a graphic intensive game(Bioshock) on it and it ran flawlessly. You should give it a try.

 

EDIT: The GUI Window, i.e  Nvidia Control Panel IS present. I just couldnt find it in teh Start Menu.

I have found the Nvidia driver that is supposed to work on Windows 7. HOWEVER, Windows 7RC will not install in the first place. That's the problem. I want to know if they will tweek the video drivers BEFORE releasing Windows 7 or am I going to have as much trouble trying to install it once I purchase it?

 

I haven't tried to find another video card to put in for the install, Win7rc will not install with the integrated nvidia chipset that's on the motherboard right now.

 

As far as I can tell the video issue is the only thing keeping me from installing 7.

I'm pretty sure that the final release of 7 will work with nVidia chipsets. The best thing you can do it probably file a bug report for the RC and hope that they receive more bugs from other users and eventually fix it.

Must be a bug_even XP will install to this chipset.We have had several owners doing an XP downgrade here at the forums with no issues.
