Posted on Thursday, February 05 2009 @ 04:35:56 CET by

If you're holding back from testing your copy of Windows 7 because you're not sure what to do as far as device drivers are concerned, there is something you ought to know (if for some reason you didn't until this point). Under the hood, Windows 7 is essentially the same as Windows Vista and as such Vista drivers will work just fine a majority of the time.

After downloading the drivers, run the installation setup and follow the prompts as if you would any other time. If you are presented with any errors due to compatibility, cancel the installation, right click the on the install package's .exe and choose "Troubleshoot Compatibility". Read more at TechSpot.
