Windows 7 driver solution

If you can't load driver vista for windows 7, you can use DriverMax (Free, search by google) to backup driver from Windows Vista (Network, printer,Sound or Graphics cards...).Then set up windows 7 and restore driver.All is OK.

Using DriverMax
1, Download DriverMax - FREE driver download program for Windows XP & Vista .
2, Export Driver (best way is export all driver to "X" folder of D:\ or E:\ (not OS installation disk)
3, Install Windows 7
4, Import Driver from "X".
5, Wait and OK.

Windows 10 Pro X64 Insider Preview (Skip Ahead) latest build

Correct - you cannot just try to install the drivers from that folder, nor can you install Driver Max and try to 'backup' your drivers again. You have to reinstall Driver Max in the new OS and then use Import, just as stated above.

If you're still having issues, please post back with exactly what is going on and exactly what you're doing.
