Hi,

Does anyone has tried succesfully installing Windows 7 on HP dv6700 laptop? Does it work? I am asking because HP is not officially supporting it on all laptops (including this one).

Thank you.

It should install just fine. However, I would check their support site and see if HP has released W7 drivers for all of the hardware in it.

thats the problem.. i dont think win 7 will work on dv6700 because if it did, then HP would have listed this laptop under its win7 supported models.. how do i find any person who has installed win7 on his dv6700?

The dv6700 not appearing on the Windows 7 supported list does not mean the Vista drivers won't work. Try them anyway.

There is no roll back option to Vista. If you install 7 via upgrading it from Vista, you will have to back up your data and do a clean install in order to get back to Vista.

Make an image of your vista using Acronis, or similar, then you can go back to exactly the way you had it.

Bobthebuilder_85,

Prior to migrating to Windows 7 it would be best to download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor will determine if your current computer configuration will be compatible with Windows 7, for further information as well as a link for download please go here: http://tinyurl.com/no4xb7

Another resource to verify compatibility is available at the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center located at the following link: http://bit.ly/1gW6Ns

Also, please note that when migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7 you will not have an "in place upgrade" option. You will however have the option to select "custom" install when prompted. The Windows 7 install process will then copy all of your data in "My Documents" over to a Windows.old folder within Windows 7 itself. All applications and documents stored in other locations will have to be reinstalled / transferred manually.

For more information on the Windows 7 Upgrade, please go here: http://bit.ly/3DvynK
