This is not XP. Win7 is driver-complete in the installer and quickly updated when you run all rounds of Important and optional Windows Updates, after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3).

You shouldn't have to import more than a couple of drivers, and we can help you if needed.

Everything is covered in the tutorial so be sure to stick with the steps because you'll get and keep a perfect install to the extent you stick with its tools and methods. This is the top site on the web for this speciality.

So I can't use any of those disc's I made to reinstall Windows, because to be honest it will take forever to download 2.4gb, as I don't have highspeed where I'm at I have to go over to a relatives ?

I found this http://kat.ph/windows-7-home-premium...-t6671455.html

If I can just download through Bit Torrent it will be much easier so that I don't have to worry losing internet connection or having to be on the internet for 2 days straight

Not a good idea. The torrent won't be any faster and it's already packaged with an illegal loader so you don't know what other surprises are seeded in it. Use the official links to keep safe and legal.

The latest official installer is in Step 1 of the tutorial so I dont' know why you're off on Digital River or torrents already. Stick with the steps in the tutorial if you want a perfect install.

I just want to be able to install Windows 7 to a new HDD thats all, but there is no way I can be on the internet for that long without losing a connection or completely slowing the internet to a point it would be unusable and would probably take 3 days just to download.

I didn't want to use the "loader" I do have a legal key I just want to be able to download in 8 hour periods maybe once or twice a week.

I see. I'd look into something like Firefox Download manager so you can start and stop the download at will.

If you go the torrent route look for clean copy with nothing added, read the comments to confirm this.

Welcome NewUser999,

Please listen to Greg's advice. It is the best you will get on the internet.

Do you have any friends that have high speed internet, that could download it for you from the legal site ?

No most of the internet in this area a all the same, thats the problem at maybe 60-70 kbps it would take too long, plus others would be on the internet and it would be used most of the day so it could easily slow down to 20 kbps or less.

Thats why I was asking about my discs that I create on wether or not they would work because I didn't want to have to download something for that much time, because I know others will want to use it and it was slow it down so much
