oem software and upgradeing to win 7

HP Recommended

I have an HP dv9700t laptop and I'd like to upgrade to win7 when its out and my question is -  is there a way to install some of my software that came with my Vista laptop after installing win7 ? Like I would like to keep youcam ... My laptop came without any cd/dvd 's so I made the recovery set and I also still have the recovery partition on the hdd. Would I be able to install just youcam from my recovery disks??  

 

    Thanks

You have a folder on C: drive..SwSetup,which contains driver/program installers.Copy it to DVD before installing Win 7. You should also be able to get some of your apps/drivers from your models page_but not all,so copy SwSetup.

What happens if you install the "recovery manager" and use it to access the recovery partition?

 

thanks
