I got a Win 7 (64bit) with a valid CD-Key (got it from school) and i wonder if I BOOT from the DVD and enter the setup that will install Windows 7, will it ask me if I want to remove everything including my Vista OS? I hope this is the case since it is what I want. And how about drivers? Will windows update just update my computer right away? Do I need drivers on disk? I don't have any drivers CDs sinces it's a laptop with everything pre-installed.. Where can i find drivers?
The reason I'm asking is this:
Once i cleand my sis' computer by re-installed XP. When I had re-installed it and went to the desktop the first time I realized i had no drivers. So i figured i'd just hit Windows update but heres the problem: I had no drivers for my network-card so i could not get internet access! Not via WLAN or cable. I solved it after several hours downloading several types of drivers from my own computer and putting it on a USB. I even had to open the computer up to see the labels on the parts in order to se exactly what to download for each part.
