Hello everyone, i love this computer forum, because everyone is so helpful. I need some more help, this time on my laptop. I have a HP DV9815nr, and I search for the drivers for window 7 os, they stop at vista, but also have xp and 2000. i want to replace my HD, with my WD 320GB HD, and use this current one in my back up slot.

how will i go about this?


my goal: have a copy of window 7(which i got) on my new HD(which i have). and use my current HD as a back up.



I'm think that i will have to load XP os with the xp drivers on my new HD and then upgrade the os to vista?



if there is a direct way to go straight to window 7 with the drivers, please let me know.

Windows 7 should come with the drivers necessary. if not try using the Vista drivers.

If you have a full version of Windows 7 just put it in and install. make sure you inly have the new drive in. leave the old one out and add it later.

should you have a upgrade version install XP (don't worry about the drivers) and upgrade straight to Windows 7
