  • Based on what I can find on the internet, I would say 'No' because you will never have full functionality and all the Windows 7 features.

    To start with, no WDDM video driver, so no Aero and no transparency.

    Microsoft does not provide support for any computers nor write the drivers and utility software; that is the sole responsibility of the maufacturer!

    The only thing Microsoft provides is a Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor which is available @

    You can go there to check your hardware compatibility, but you still have to rely on Advent for Windows 7 drivers and utility software to make your system fully functional.
