A valid Windows installation disc will contain all the drivers you will need. That and a valid product key is all you need.

Answer this now before we go any further:

Do you have a legal Product Key for Win7?

Where did you get it?

The iso will work, but not for a long time without the product key . So get a product key .

OK Sir, even without a Product key you can install Windows 7 and try it for 30 days. So do install an official version and not any pirated/preactivated Windows. It is not good for the health of your laptop.

As Gregrocker said Windows 7 will have/find most of the drivers though I prefer to download them from the Dell support site and have them ready.

Let us know the model number of the Dell Laptop.

For the other drivers like nVidia etc, if needed, you are to search with the card's built number , in the manufacturer's site.

I think I can't explain it what I a trying to say. During the part where I choose to install the OS, it asks me that I need drivers blah blah will search the PC, CD/DVD, disks and so on to find them. Since it can't find the drivers, it doesn't allow to install Win 7. I need integrated drivers.

It's the price you pay for trying to install dodgy software.

A Digital River ISO would have no such problems.
