Automatic updating vista
Suppose you have connected a device with your computer, Windows 7 / Vista will now automatically search for the driver and install it.
If you want to select every driver manually(because you have a manual driver that is better), then you should disable automatic driver installation.
If all goes well, when you emerge on the other side of what is an hours-long upgrade process, you will emerge with a copy of Windows 7 that has all of your documents, settings, and applications up and running. First, be sure to pay particular attention to the Compatibility Report that appears during Setup (as we will see below).
In fact, your best bet is to download and run the Windows 7 Update Advisor before attempting this upgrade.
You will see a box as shown below, now simply select Ask me each time I connect a new device before checking for drivers Never check for drivers when I connect a device, depending on how you want Windows Update to find a matching driver ?
