    Theres a problem with that because I have recently bought my laptop before the windows 7 release so I applied for a windows 7 free upgrade this means i cannot do a clean install and can only upgrade.
    You are mistaken.

    Take your DVD and start the installation, it will ask you clean or upgrade. Go with clean. But do not give your key number. Complete the installation. Now try it, then install your programs. After you know that you are happy, give them your number. You have 30 days to activate with your number. We also have tutorials at this site that will give more information.

    BTW This is legal, MS knows about it, but keep it quiet. The upgrade is just like full retail DVD, but 100 bucks cheaper. But they use the honor system, you must have a qualifiying OS to upgrade from.
    I saw 'Upgrade' and 'Custom' I chose Upgrade.. Thanks for the advice though.

    Boot from the Win7 DVD included in your upgrade kit, select Custom install and use Advanced drive tools to delete all, create new partitions as you wish, then format before install.

    The Win7 installer is nearly driver complete, with more to follow in Windows Updates. Any drivers missing in Device Manager can be found on the Drivers/Apps CD provided along with favorite apps.

    Anything less than a clean install carries over the corruption from before. It sounds like you have a bloated OS to start with Catalyst when you only need the video driver which the Win7 installer already has.

    I am having all the same issues upgrading and have decided to go with the hard install. Ive looked up the catalyst software suite for my type of laptop and there is a note underneath that says:
    Note: The Mobility Radeon ATI Catalyst drivers for Windows 7 are beta and are only available for Windows 7 beta releases. For up to date Mobility Radeon graphics drivers for Windows 7, please contact your laptop manufacturer.

    Is this going to be an issue after I install Win 7 and try to reinstall my drivers?

    No need to reinstall drivers in Win7. The Win7 installer is nearly driver-complete. You only have to hunt down one or two drivers missing in the Device Manager. This is not at all like XP or Vista.

    In dozens of Win7 installs, I've never had a display adapter fail to be supplied by installer or Windows Update. If yours is missing, use the one from your computer maker's Support Downloads webpage for your model.
