No, its ok, the worst way to help a newbie is by yelling at them, you should ask more questions, so we can help you better.

OK, driver you will need, will be any hardware you intend to connect, or is internally connected, DVD/CD drives, Sound cards, webcams, printers and scanners etc.

You can get these off the manufacturers website, they may not have support for W7, so try the Vista x64 ones, they usually, but not always work.

one last question:

Do I need to set anything on the BIOS to prepare for windows 7 installation?

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

jstar, Win7 does a very good job loading drivers for most of the "regular" hardware out there. Just let it install and update any needed drivers. If you then have any problems we will be happy to help
