so i installed windows 7 on my aspire one, this was not easy seeing as how the aspire one does not have a cd drive. i also did not have a external cd drive, so had to install it from a 8gig thumb drive. this was a pretty big challenge. this is not my problem however. my real problem is that now that i have 7 on the netbook it keeps locking up. it only seems to be happening when i use the wireless. at first it did not do this (while i was installing drivers) but when i got the wireless internet going it started freezing. this freezing is not a gradually loss in performance either, its just a complete system lockup out of nowhere (ie. mouse lockes up, wont respond to power button). if anyone could please help me so that my efforts are not in vein i would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!!

If there is a newer Windows 7 driver available for the wireless... grab it... otherwise the latest Vista driver should work.

Win 7 uses the same driver model as Vista, so Vista drivers should work if you're having problems with your hardware.

Well you should look for Win 7 drivers whenever possible... however, not all manufacturers will have Win 7 drivers available or their Win 7 drivers won't function properly. In that case, Vista drivers will be the next best thing.
