Not sure, but I would not worry about it. Win7 will assign itself C: and you can assign D: later in Disk Mgmt.

Just be sure you install to C: and it is a Primary partition.

I did not worry, but carried on eith the install, and you are right.
C and D is ok, and I nearly have installed W7U.

I just need the graphic driver, then I will make backup according to your link
bit up in this.
Thanks again M8

Check Optional WIndows Updates first to see if it delivers the latest display driver. If not, find it on the Support Downloads webpage for your computer or Device.

Thank you, Microsoft has a driver for my NVIDIA card.

It can be viewed here. BUT with this card I have better resolution if I ran Windows XP on the same computer.
I have a HDD fast remove and plug case, where I can put my SATA HDD's into :-)

Was this driver given by the installer, or later optional Windows Updates? Have you checked optional Updates lately?

How does it work compared to the latest driver on NVIDIA website?

There are no specs so I don't know what make/model computer you have, or built. Have you checked the maker's website for latest display driver? These are sometimes required.

First I installed the driver from the NVIDIA site.
After your words, I enter the Device Manager, and choosed Update the driver, where I found the Microsoft one.

Yes I have checked updates at the Microsoft site.


BUT it's not better, than the NVIDIA one.

The computer here is homebuilt. The mainboard is an ASUS P5Q Deluxe.

ASUS has no driver for the graphic board.
