Newbie trying to upgrade Notebook. I currently have some questions which I'm sure will be quite simple for a guru out there to answer, any help much appreciated. I have a HP Notebook (Pavilion dv6528tx - to be exact) and I just successfully installed new RAM, ran my PC and it worked perfectly. I currently have Windows Vista and have bought Windows 7 and want to custom install as Im installing a new HDD. After installing the new HDD and trying to install Windows7, it cannot find my HDD to install. I have researched this and I need Motherboard Drivers?, however I assume I will need drivers for everything, sound, graphics etc, would this be right? I have found a website where I can buy a supposed CD/Download for my exact Notebook which contains ALL drivers I will need.
The HP website doesn't have drivers for Windows 7 for my Notebook, only Vista Drivers. I have searched the web for ages and it seems like the best option to get all drivers. Is this what I need to do - get all drivers and install on new HDD before I can install Win7?
(Ram, HDD, Win7 64-bit have all been thoroughly researched and are compatible with my PC).
Any help much appreciated.
