Right now, I have an HP dv6700t laptop. I already know that it has more than enough power to run windows 7. I only want to ask about drivers. If I go ahead and install windows 7 on it, will there be any driver-related issues? I checked HP's website and they said that there are no windows 7 drivers for the laptop that I have. However, I heard that the regular vista drivers will work with Windows 7. Is that true? Or will there be issues with certain things not working if I install windows 7?
It varies from model to model. Most of the time, you can get drivers for your hardware directly from the manufacturer for certain OSs. Vendor-specific hardware (like the media buttons and such) you may be out of luck on.
