I'm new on this. Sorry for not reading the instructions.

Although I'm registered my Mac on the forum, I am having problems with my PC:

HP Pavilion tx2110us
AMD Turion (tm) 64 X2 2.10 Ghz
3GB Ram
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit OS

Could anyone help me here?

No device drivers were found when I try to upgrade from a Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit OS to the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Professional.

I first downloaded the image file from the 64 bit Win 7 and burnt to a DVD. Then booted and start the installation until got stucked on the above "no device drivers" message. Is there anything I should've done before? I am sure all the vista drivers are updated because I checked all the updates. Thank you.

Should I update the drivers I have on Vista 32 bit now for Win 7 64 bit? Is this going to solve my initial problem with the installation process? Thank you.

Ok, I got that from previous research. So I tried a clean install and during the installation I received the "no device drivers" message. I had to remove the DVD and went back to the Vista OS.

Ok. I don't mind doing that since I have all back ups, and don't want to go back to vista. But sorry for asking, could you explain me why I have to format the HD? Is that necessary? My copy of the Windows 7 is an upgrade, a copy of an image file I have downloaded from my university vendor. Thanks.

You can upgrade from 32 to 32, 64 to 64. but not upgrade 32 to 64, or downgrade 64 to 32.

And formatting the HD will allow this 32 to 64 upgrade?
