Will Dell Vista System Drivers work on Windows 7?

    I have a Dell Vostro 410 PC running Vista Home Premium that came with it.
    I just wondered if the motherboard/ chipset drivers that are designed for Vista will work with Windows 7 when I upgrade?

    I spoke with Dell support and they weren't sure if they will release specific Windows 7 drivers.


    Yes it most likely will, you can install the Vista drivers on it using previous windows compatibility mode.

    When you install windows 7 make sure you are connected to the internet and windows does a really good job of finding the correct drivers,

    cheers for the replies guys!

    Some XP drivers work on mine,

    And as Windows 7 is built on a similar platform as Vista, Vista drivers should work fine.

    I'm running Windows 7 now and 99% of the drivers are Vista drivers.
