Windows 7: Cant install chipset / graphics drivers

Cant install chipset / graphics drivers

Hi all,

Im trying to install windows 7 inside a virtual machine, and ive run into a few problems. Whenever i try to install any of the drivers (Chipset, Graphics, Audio etc.) i get a message saying this computer does not meet the requirements for installing software.

Firstly just to clear up this isnt because its not physically capable, ive given it plenty of ram (3gb), and it s not because ive got the wrong drivers, i have w7 pro x64 installed, and im getting the drivers for w7 pro x64. I tried to update the drivers manually via the 'have disk' method, but then it tells me im trying to install them on the wrong operating system.

if anyone can help me out, id be hugely appreciative.

You should not install your host drivers in a VM, just install the guest additions
