Default Installing Win7 - 10-24-2009, 05:10 PM

I just ordered windows 7 and I am planning on just using an external dvd drive for the install. Is this the best/easiest way to do it? What will I need to do besides put the disc in and install it? Are there and drivers and such that I need to get after the install? Thanks for your help!

I would say that is the easiest way to do it. That is how I installed the RC of Win7 on mine. Most drivers work and Dell's website has some Win7 drivers.

See here.
