    Did Anyone successfully install Windows seven (32 or 64) on a HP Compaq 8510w?

    I just installed the RTM version linked in the Repository thread. No problems whatsoever (except bios battery seems to be empty, date resets to 1980 :D )

    Then I proceeded to install needed drivers from HP website, I chose to use Vista64 drivers and some of them had to be installed in compatibility mode.
