Windows 7: Install Windows 7 Pro in Toshiba laptop

Install Windows 7 Pro in Toshiba laptop


I bought a new Toshiba laptop (L300-1DN) for someone this year and they have Vista SP2 on it (obviously fully included with Toshiba drivers etc. which are also on a recovery disk). There is an option to buy an upgrade version for Vista users of Win 7 HP, but I have already bought a full version of Win 7 Pro, and my preference is a clean install as I'm not too sure about the success rate of upgrades and efficiency of the new operating system afterwards...

Therefore if I do a clean install of Win 7 Pro, what's the situation regarding drivers? I was told that Win 7 has many manufacturers' drivers built into it's kernel and that any manual update of drivers should be minimal?

Thanks for any advice.

If there is not a default driver on the Windows 7 dvd then you can check Toshiba's website for a newer one. If you dont locate it then you could always use the Vista driver since Win 7 is close to Vista design.
