I downloaded W/7 on to a new Tower and did not need to load any drivers so whether they were already on the disc or updated by Microsoft I am not sure. Windows7 worked without me downloading any drivers.
I've now done the clean W7 install. At first the new system couldn't find our wireless network, and the display settings were wrong. So, using the CD that Driver Max created, I just installed the old drivers for the wi-fi card and the display drivers, and now all is well.
Many thanks for your help and advice.
