Mick Woods Tech: Transfer from WinXP to Win7, setup probs (6) RE: Tech: Transfer from WinXP to Win7, setup probs 03 Dec 09


I also had a lot of problems - The BIOS on your computer needs to be updated to the latest version before installing win 7 - although this is recomended it is probably OK to do this after installation too - I did! Then you must update all your drivers this is normally done automatically for most of the windows stuff but things that are specific to your computer can be done bygoing to control panel - system & security - System - Device manager open relevant folders and right click against device and choose "update Driver". Lots of software will need patches from the vendor's websites. I had a nightmare but managed get it all going in the end - then thiought what was the point? There is nothing about win 7 that improves on XP!
