I have a Latitude d600. I have installed windows 7. But I want to install drivers and update some. But I only see windows 2000 and XP as option. Anyway I can get the windows 7 drivers for my Latitude?
Solved! Go to Solution.
There should be little or no need beyond what WIndows 7 natively supports - and the system is so old, you won't find the drivers from Dell. This system was never supported with Vista and 7 won't be officially supported, either.
If there's a driver missing, you'll have to find it from Microsoft or from the component manufacturer. The D600 is ancient as systems go - it went end of life years ago.
I understand it is old. But it is still a perfectly good laptop hardware wise. Unfortually I was hoping windows would install generic drivers.
Drivers I need are the NIc drivers and wireless drivers.
Search for Realtek ac97vista_6305 download --> unzip --> High light the sound missing component under Device Manager, then update by point to the directory you just unzip the ac97vista_6305.
For missing wireless driver, just plug your Ethernet to your network, then do windows update; the
That would be it. I have my Dell D600 running fine on Windows 7.
Both should be available - from either Intel or Broadcom (whichever you have - D600s were shipped with both wired NICs and a variety of wireless cards).
vista and windows 7 is not really supported for your laptop........its just too old...i have an old desktop that i cannot upgrade due to the age and non-support for drivers....get ya a newer notebook
I am trying to install windows 7 on my latitude from an ISO but I need to make a bootable windows 7 disk. Do you know how I can make a bootable windows 7 disk from an ISO?
Actually, I found this tool : Create Windows 7 Bootable USB Drive or DVD Using Official “Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool” from Microsoft (http://www.askvg.com/create-windows-7-bootable-usb-drive-or-dvd-using-official-windows-7-usbdvd-down...) . Thanks to all for the wonderful suggestions.
