In nvidia website it is mention something similar to this... if you have OEM system then please update from your manufacturer's website and use the software provided by your system manufacturer.

q15] Will there will be potential installation incompatibilities on the OEM system?

Because if i revert back my system to vista (due to some reasons faced problems in windows 7) with HP vista recovery disk then will my recovery manager will work?

q16] Will be system will work and recovery manager stored in HDD will be corrupted because of this? and it will violate the warranty or HP licence? Warranty is not the issue because it has passed away.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Even for the BIOS it has mentioned in HP that Only install BIOS updates from HP. Do not install BIOS updates from the motherboard manufacturer's Web site. Doing so might prevent the computer from accepting an HP System Recovery.

q21] if i revert back and install vista then will my recovery manager will work?

I am not going to delete recovery manager from the hdd, but i will do clean install of windows 7, if incase i might need if i want to revert back. So what is your opinion on this,

Hi,


Rather than answer all those questions , please use the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
which will inform you if upgrade is possible and any issues that may arise upgrading:

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

Here are the minimum system requirements also for Win 7:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows7/products/system-requirements

Program compatibility guide:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/help/compatibility

Cheers and Good luck.

Then once you have installed Windows 7, if you experience any issues then
we will be able to help.

I wouldnt worry too much about the drivers, Win 7 should take care of the majority
of them and allow installation, you may just need a few 3rd party drivers after install.

Windows will install generic drivers for the most part, to enable the system to run.
According to HP your model does well under Win 7, but no official drivers are available
for Win 7 as yet...see here

There is a HP guide for upgrading:
http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-e-g-Windows-8-and-Software/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv6000-dv9000-models/m-p/179956

Personally, I would keep the recovery and backup everything so if anything goes wrong you can recover back to Vista and I would go ahead and install Win 7 and see what issues you have.

Cheers

The link ...see here which you have provided is not related with my problem. It was all about upgrading ram.

I need drivers for windows 7.

There are no Official Win 7 drivers for your model at present

And the link I pointed out was so you could see the following:

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1
 
 

Basically, that was a custom built laptop for Vista OS at the time, I have one in that scenario and won't upgrade it to 7 either.

I looked over the specs, and it's same as mine, max 2gigs of RAM, and same CPU speed.

I would buy a new laptop or stay with Vista.

I've personally done something very similar -- upgraded a PC to and OS version that the PC vendor did not directly support -- and I can tell you, it was NOT an "overnight" activity! I spend close to 100 hours using hardware ID numbers, searching the Net for drivers. I was eventually able to find all the drivers I needed -- but it took a lot of work.

Like yours, mine was a laptop, so generic drivers from MS only got me part way. If you're not willing to invest a LOT of personal time hunting for drivers, making backups, testing different drivers, (etc), then it's best that you do NOT start down this road.

FIRST thing you should do, if you are intending to pursue this, is install an image backup/restore app (I personally recommend Macrium Reflect, but others will recommend others) and make an image backup of your current setup to an external drive. That will give you a fallback in case you end up NOT being able to make the laptop work after the upgrade in that you will then be able to get the current state restored.

Among places you should consider searching are the Microsoft Update Catalog -- it often has drivers for older equipment.

Good Luck -- you'll need it!
