I got a CF-30 Mark2 and want to install Windows 7. Can I do a straight install on a 500GB bare drive or do I need to install XP Pro, then the drivers, and then add Win7? Also, where do I look in Bios to find GPS. It isn't listed on main pages and read where it could be found but I forgot where I read it. The configurator and the antenna say it's in there somewhere. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I would do a full install of W7 (no XP) . For drivers download the Vista drivers (I think) My MK2 came with W7 already installed. Not sure which screen the GPS will show in ...my 30 in all apart at the moment but sure it shows in there somewhere. Putting a Intel 160GB SSD in it when I find the time :D
