Samsung N110 upgrade

I'm thinking of upgrading my netbook from XP to W7.

Will there be any problems with drivers or will it be fairly straight forward?
I understand that it will need a clean install from XP, so will that mean I can't use an upgrade version?
And should I be restricted to the starter edition, or will it run OK on the Home Premium?

I can't speak for the N110 but I had no problems installing a full version copy of Windows 7 Home Premium as dual boot with the original XP on my NC10.

Samsung have recently released drivers and software for Windows 7 click here so you should be OK.

If you do take the dual boot route be aware of a problem with XP deleting restore points created by Windows 7. click here gives details on how to fix it easily.

I'll check that all out over the week ahead.

I take it that the little Samsungs handle the Home Premium & dual boot OK? I read somewhere that they were only suited to the basic W7.

Premiun runs fine on the NC10 but I have added another gig of RAM to the original 1GB.
