    Here's what I did (I'm currently running Vista Ultimate x64):

    Flash your bios with a HP 2.1 slic (available eslsewhere on this forum) and then use a HP cert (also available elsewhere on this forum). Vista will work fine and you'll be ready for Win 7.

    I think that one is a Award Bios, can simply do it yourself.

    This tool is super easy to use:

    And even better with most newer gigabyte motherboards, is even if you F!@# it up, you have dual bios, just use 2nd bios and flash it back to normal using a copy of 2nd bios.
