Thank you both! I'm in a fortunate position where if I manage to break anything, it can still be exchanged without a hassle. I would really prefer to not break it though lol
I'm making my recovery disc now (having issues with that too but I think I can figure it out) and then I'll go ahead with the Windows 7 install.
But should I be worried about the apparent lack of Windows 7 drivers
for this specific model? I'm sorry if that's a dumb question. And thanks again for all the help!
