The problem is, simply saving the driver file isn't enough, so my guess is that this person is far less technical than you would like to think. Just go to the website of the various manufacturers of any hardware devices you have, download the Windows 7 driver packages, and stop making things needlessly complicated.
Hi all. I propose upgrading from Vista to Win 7 on my HP Pavilion dv6500 Laptop. I discussed this with a techi some time back an his experience was that it was a fairly straight foreward process on an HP laptop (ie specificaly easier to do on the HP laptops). His one recomendation was to save a file from the Windows folder containing drivers prior to doing the upgrade in case the new Win7 files didn't have the correct drivers for the software I have. Trouble is, I'm not sure of the name of the exact file that he recomended saving to USB flash drive to cover this contingency, nor it's location within Windows. Can anyone recall which file in Windows folder he was talking about. (nb. I do have it written down in a 'safe place', but it's so 'safe' I can't find it.
