I have a HP Pavilion dv7-2185dx Laptop. I bought it right when Windows 7 came out. I had the option to upgrade to Windows 7 for free. I never did the free upgrade. The system is a work horse and I want to up upgrade it to windows 7. I have a full stand alone copy of windows 7 I can install on it. I was wondering what the best path would be to accomplish the final goal of the laptop with Windows 7 working with all the current drivers. I could order the orginal install disks (Vista then purchase the upgrade) or would it be better to just to a clean install on the system with my Windows 7? Which ever path, how would I get all the drivers needed for the system if I use Windows 7 install disk? I know it does have some ability to plug and play. Thank you. Oh yes it is a quad core with 6 gig of ram and 500 gig hard drive. Its processors are Intel Core Q900 2.0 ghz.
