\015 But the drivers keep saying that they will only work in Vista Premium and no matter how hard i try, i cannot get the sony drivers to work properly.\015\012\015\012This is a Centrino based laptop.\015\012\015\012Does anyone have any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Vista drivers are Vista drivers. As long as you are not doing anything regarding the 32-bit/64-bit line, everything should work fine. The 32-bit Vista driver model doesn't change with the specific flavor of Vista. The same thing with the 64-bit version. So if the drivers work in the 32-bit version of Vista Home Premium, they will also work unchanged in the 32-bit version of Vista Ultimate. And if you are doing an in-place upgrade, you don't need to even try to reinstall the drivers anyway.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270 running on windows XP pro. It has 2MB RAM and 80GB hard disc drive. When I checked to see if I could run Windows Vista Ultimate, the checker said I could, but might need to upgrade the video card. Can you give me some ideas on what I will need? Thank you.

Want to know if I can update my acer aspire 4530 notebook from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 when it becomes available. Not talking about an upgrade but rather a full install of the product. I had a problem trying to install Vista Ultimate on the machine. That's why I'm asking the question about Windows 7.
