I bought a new laptop w/7 home premium. Its a gateway so there are no discs that came with it. The hard drive has the repair / re-instal info on it or you can make your own cd's at stat up.
So here is the deal. I have not turned it on yet. I want to have 7 pro for the network back up etc. I also want to upgrade my desk top from vista ultimate to 7 pro as well as my wifes laptop from vista home to 7 pro. I do not want any of the pre installed junk on the new laptop. I will need the system drivers
and I wonder the best way to get them with no documentation. Also I've read horror stories about the file that has the reinstall info in it dirtying up the water with a clean install. I have copies of XP pro, and an upgrade to vista ultimate from vista home both licensed and completly legal.
So does any one have an idea about the best approach for getting the system drivers and what 7 pro product should I buy. OEM, full, upgrade, ? I of course want to watch the $ but I want to stay basically above board also.
Any help about making a sound decision would be apreciated
