I ran Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

Successful:

CPU - Tick
RAM - Tick
Hard Drive Soace - Tick
Windows Aero - Tick

Update required:

Intel ® Management Engine Interface: "Action Required" - Update required to make this device compatible with Windows 7. Go online for the latest driver from the manufactures website.

Now, how on earth do I know what driver I need to download for the device???

It also tells me I need to do a custom installation and then reinstall applications, does this mean "Clean Install"? I want to do CLEAN anyway.

My two cents on this is:
  • Do a clean install. There are so many potential and unforseen issues that you could run into if you "upgrade" to Win 7, no matter what OS you jump up from. Back up all of your data, personal stuff and important information and start from scratch.
  • Get the drivers first that you know you will need for Win 7 before you get to the install. Especially drivers for you Network Interface Card (NIC).
That's just my thoughts on the matter. Best of luck.
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.

Right, sorry. I guess I could have looked a little closer and realized that you're not an amateur. Here's one possibility:

You're probably going to have to wait until after some time after October 22nd to get one that is definite Win 7 compatible, but as you can see at that link the driver is good for pretty much all other version of Windows.
