  • Meaning you can use them just like you do currently and/or the manufacturer has provided software and drivers to allow you to do so?

  • (Motherboard chipset, video device, audio device, network device(s), printers, scanners, cameras, phones, etc and so on.) If so - have you downloaded all that you need to make Windows 7 work on/with the hardware in question?

  • 2) Have you backed up all of your important data? (Documents, spreadsheets, emails, product keys, serial numbers, emails, contacts, pictures, databases, saved games, music, installation media - including downloaded media and CD/DVD media, etc and so on.)

  • 3) Did you get a 32-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 7 installation DVD? 4) Are you *expecting* an autorun to bring something up?

  • Can you browse the DVD?

  • Select the time zone and click Next.

  • If your computer is connected to a network, Windows will also suggest selecting network settings. Select Home network.

  • After that, the operating system will apply the settings and finish the installation.
