Windows 7 has been running fine on my desktop PC for a while now, everything is fine and dandy, but a friend of mine would like to try it on a Laptop he has lying around, and would like me to install it as my knowledge of computers is more advanced than his own. I've never actually re-installed an OS on a laptop as I've never needed to, but I get the jist of it. Check the brand and model, check to see if the relavent drivers can be found on the manufacturer's website and then check the laptop compatibility. The Laptop: Asus M50Sa Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit I'm kind of happy it's Vista, as that means he can do an Upgrade to W7, but, will it workout ok? Is there anything I'll need to look out for during the install process? Would it be better to just recomend XP SP3?
