Installing Windows 7, on vista supplied laptop

Now.. I've been in ICT for years, studying. But I have never installed windows 7 on a laptop, that comes with Vista. I was wondering, will it already have all the necessary drivers? Because my PC for instance, when i install windows 7, it doesnt install the wireless adapter driver which is inbuilt to my motherboard. So, this got me thinking about the laptop wireless.. would it automatically install that? Bare minimum i would need, as it would probably pick the rest of the hardware up and install it.

Cheers!

The laptop in question, is a HP DV6238EA (and it isn't mine, which is why im asking in the first place)

Dont worry about drivers Windows 7 already contains tons of drivers and so long as you have an internet connection (either wired or wireless) it will find the rest once connected, I've installed it on newer and older machines without an hitch, even on 10 year old p3 laptops it worked a treat.

I would personally do a clean install, also install from a flash drive its twice the speed, I can have it up and running in 30 mins or less.

I bought a laptop 3 years ago, and I installed windows 7 weeks after release. There was no problems :)

I have been using it since beta stages with no problems, its been more stable than any other OS in my experience.
