I haven't found a report, but generally it should work:
- Most drivers are probably included in Windows 7.
- If it works with Vista, then those drivers should work with Windows 7, too.
- There's no special hardware configuration like integrated graphics chip plus dedicated card.

But probably there is a problem: Launch Manager. It's possible that another (newer) version of another model works with Vista, but I don't know. What does your report about upgrading to Vista say? There's the same problem.

You can also try the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, but I don't know how reliable it is:

(Windows 7: Of course you have to use the 32 bit version, 64 bit won't work.)

thank you very much for your fast reply

iam not sure about vista(i just read on the internet that people have installed it succefully ).

i'm still on windows xp on my AMILO M7400 so maybe it's not posible because drivers and bios are too old?

I suppose you'll just have to try ;-)
(Of course it's best to use a second partition, so you can test Windows 7 independently of XP.)
