    So, tell me about the Win7 install you did and driver issues for the D410. Did you install any drivers or just let Win7 use native drivers? Please share any links for successful driver updaters you used. Thanks!

    LAN driver was installed by 7, so hooked it up and got rest from WU. No dramas at all.

    I did this install on a spare drive I have, now changed back to XP. Don't really see 7 as a OS to be taken seriously. It's ok to fiddle around with for fun on a spare system, but I actually need this laptop for real work and 7 is useless for that.

    For the record, mine is a 2Ghz with 2GB of ram and a 60GB 7200 rpm HDD.

    Just wanted to follow up with my experience. I have two D410s working with Win7 (Ultimate) and have had them working solidly for several months. There have been absolutely no issues: no "falling out of activation" or Win7 issues of any kind. I scurried around and found the best drivers I could for the onboard hardware, even replacing or updating some that were Win7 native driver loads. Win7 is lightweight and works well on the D410 platform.
