Dell Studio 1735

Hello SF!

Yesterday, i installed Windows 7 Home Premium on my sister's Dell Studio 1735, but there aren't W7 drivers for this model (Only Vista 32/64) and there are 2 devices i cant install cause WU can't find their drivers (Unknown Devices), i DO have the Recovery and OEM Partitions, to revert it to Win Vista, thing is i don't want to.. Win Vista STINKS!

So, there's any chance for me to actually install those 2 drivers? or should i revert it to Win Vista??

Thanks in advanced!

What devices are they? Look on the manufacturer's site for drivers. If you can't find any for 7, download the Vista ones. If they won't install, run them in compatibility mode for Vista.

I don't know, windows update installed 4 unknown devices, but there are 2 that doesn't install them (i live in venezuela so the names are in Spanish, so they will be like 'Base System Device' and 'Unknown Device'), let me reinstall windows 7 and check, probably take some pics (i kinda f****d up the installation trying to find how the F the recovery partition works xD)

I'm using a Ubuntu Live CD, so i could just erase those OEM and Recovery partitions.. but im not sure, cause i don't know about you, but i dont like to be on a windows with missing drivers..

What would you recommend? Thanks for such a quick response

I wouldn't worry about it too much. If Windows is missing a critical driver, it would become obvious right away, as it probably wouldn't boot.

If sometime in the future, you discover a device that won't work (like a webcam, sound card, etc), install the drivers for that individually.

I'm already installing windows (actually the sound card works, im thinking it's the web camera cause is not listed under printers and devices) but the Base System Device sounds to me like it has something to do with the chipset or something like that... i'll be taking some pictures.. probably in like 20 ~ 30mins (when w7 installation finishes, and my eating process ends haha)

I think i'll just get rid of those partitions, i just wouldn't revert to a bloatware-infested windows vista.. no thanks..

I'll post any new information here

Careful deleting those partitions. Deleting the OEM partition will likely remove your ability to restore to Vista. Deleting the 100 or 200MB system reserved partition will cause your computer to become non-bootable, unless you follow these instructions: System Reserved Partition - Delete

Already deleted the partitions, (im not a newbie, btw) i actually work with PC's but i've never worked with a dell studio 1735.. i think i'll figure it out on windows 7.. it's already a superb laptop, 4gb ram, core 2 duo 2.53ghz, my sister IS a lucky little ******* >.<

I'll keep updating this until everything's set and ready to play
