Windows 7: Driver incompatibility

Vista, soon to be Windows 7

Heya Wii Master! I saw your screen name on a couple other forums and you never were answered on there, so i think i will make this my home for awhile!

Anyways, i have the upgrade disc (I am a Windows 7 Launch Party host), and i can confirm the option for a CLEAN INSTALL using the upgrade disc. Though there is a catch...

You have to at least have vista installed. Run vista and throw in your disc. When your disc is in, it will give you the option to clean install or upgrade and keep files.

Being in the launch party, i now have 2 copies...i have a 32bit and 64 bit copy of Ultimate.

Windows 7 Home Premium

Ok, thanks for the info, but I figured this out a while back. But, I guess while I'm at it, should I back up all of my drivers or should I just let Windows Update handle them? I'm going with the custom install.
