AMILO Li 2727 Migrating To Windows 7

Hi guys,
I have a AMILO Li 2727 and want to intall Windows 7 as this Vista is consuming too mutch RAM.
On the site of Fujitsu there are no drivers for 7 as it is not supported.
Before doing this I searched the web for people that have already tryed this. Here is what one is saying.
http://forum.ts.fujitsu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=41147
So according to the man on the second post every driver can be found even for windows 7, but you cant turn the WiFi on using Fn+F1 keys, as it doesn't do this at the startup. The come in a program that is downloaded in fujitsu site, but only works in vista.
Fortunotely I found a VB script that does it but works only in XP.

Unfortunately the script doesn't work in windows 7, as the guy posted last in this topic says:

Well ... again .... install it in "Compatibility Mode". This what Microsoft recommends you do first.

if you want to play sure, i suggest :
1- backup your data
2- make a disk image of your present install, so you can return to Vista if W7 does not work out ok
3-install W7 and test it out

If the program that controls the Fn keys works in Vista you can install it in Vista Compatibility Mode by right clicking on the file and selecting "Troubleshoot Compatibility" when installing.
If it still does not work you can install it in Window 7 XP Mode.

The problem is that the program, that the program that turns the WiFi on doesnt' work on windows 7 adn XP, only on vista.

I advise you to wait for the right drivers when they become available or
try and contact their support to see what do they say about this issue.
Many people stay away from Windows 7 for the similar reasons so I think,for the
time being,you should do the same.
Upgrading without a clear picture what will work or not is not
very advisable.
