At step 6, am I suppose to clean then restart and go into regular windows OS without internet? Also, I downloaded the 12.7 ATI beta driver. Is this all that I need? Sorry for all the questions. I would just prefer to do this correctly and not put my system in a worse state.

That is true. The reason why we're avoiding to go online, is that Windows 7 will probably see that your Graphic Card needs the driver, and it'd install some old WHQL driver, and we'd need to start all over.

I do not recommend the BETA Drivers. Download this one.

Just ask if you have any questions.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

Awesome! Should I go through this procedure every time I install a driver? It's no problem just wondering if it is the best method.

For Graphic Card drivers, Ethernet Drivers and so on, I do recommend it. Left-over files can be a bit of a player to deal with.

When you're going from safe mode, to the normal Windows, you can either turn off the router, plug out the LAN cable if you're using LAN, configure Windows to forget the network while you're in safe mode.

Frederik.
