    Just got a new pc today an intel i7 with nothing on it, so I installed vista home premium on it as that was at hand, the PC came with all my drivers which I put on. When I got my PC going with the vista operating system, then I added windows 7 ultimate because for some reason I couldn't get the windowns 7 to work before putting the vista on, and obviously because the vista is 32 bit it just slammed the 32 bit windows 7 on top of it with no option for 64 bit.
    now when I installed my drivers everything worked with no need to go online for anything.

    so maybe the vista upgrades don't need the drivers (as stated above) only xp

    sorry if I am out of depth here but it is my first post ;)

    If I had a driver problem I would never been able to operate xp pro would I ? On the other hand, where do you put the drivers when you dont have an operating system? I have drivers for my mother board the i945Gm-PILF. the first that happens is to install the operating system . I am sorry that I didnt keep xp pro in there and just use windows 7 to upgrade.

    I am closing this now because I think it was meant to be informative, not to try to describe and solve specific problems. If any mod wants to re-open that's fine with me.

    For those having problems please start your own new thread.

    lpsfu, nice try but your issue was well covered in your thread.
