I brought up a similar topic on almost the same thing a few weeks ago, but the thread is old and didn't wanna bump it.
Here's the situation: I've got a HP a6433w that has Vista Home Premium 64 bit installed, and to be nice about it, VISTA SUCKS!! I got rid of 64 bit Vista on my laptop and installed XP 32 bit (Wow, huge speed difference!).

My plan is to use D-BAN to completely wipe the HDD and install Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit). Is there anyone who can guide me through this step-by-step, or at least provide me with a link to 'model specific' instructions. It wasn't very straight forward when I changed the OS on the laptop, so I doubt it'll be any different on this one. I have already downloaded the BIOS update and all the original drivers. Which to install first???? I assume the chipset driver, but I'm having a little trouble finding it....

I would appreciate any help you guys can offer.
