Question Windows Vista Drivers On Windows 7
Hello every one,

I have a motherboard in my friends computer that is the Foxconn M61PMV and we can only find vista drivers. We can not find windows 7 drivers for the motherboard. Would windows vista drivers work on windows 7 and is it worth trying?

Thanking in advance Jack-O-Bytes

I have installed win 7 on two machines so far and have not required any drivers at all, this includes printers/scanners and pretty much any hardware connected to the machine.
So far I am really impressed with win 7, so yes it is definitely worth it.

Run the Windows 7 upgrade adviser on Microsoft's site (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...e-advisor.aspx). It will tell you if you will have driver problems and that includes the motherboard.
