You cannot use any Windows XP drivers unless the
documentation states "compatible with Windows 7". Most
Vista drivers will work on Win 7 but XP one's definitely won't
unless the drivers are contained in a 'package' containing
several drivers for XP. Vista, & 7.

Make sure all the drivers are Windows 7 compatible. And if
your PC is a brand-name like Sony, Packard bell, Compaq,
Dell, etc. you must get the drivers from their respective
websites because in most cases those companies have
drivers custom-made for custom hardware, so they aren't
available from anyone else.

Most Windows 7 problems I see are related to drivers, installs on older windows XP machines, where compatible drivers may not be available, and attempted installs on XP machines that do not include formatting the existing drive. Throw in a few that don't reset the boot order and some that are trying to use 10 or 15 year old programs written originally for Windows 3.2 or 95, and you have 85% or 90% of all 'problems'. I guess most of us are finding Windows 7 to be relatively problem free! Nice. (Nicer if more people checked out the true facts before proceeding on assumptions)
Sorry if this does not help anyone specific, I just needed to say it....
