Following Toshiba support in the past I presume Toshiba will start Win7 support when Win7 will be launched on the market and when first Toshiba notebook will be offered with preinstalled Win7 operating system.

The same was with WXP and Vista.

Some drivers for Vista works good on Win 7 (For ex.: BT stack & touchPad drivers works without any problem) Ups... it for Satellite A200, but... who knows? :-)

Yes, generally Vista drivers will work in Win7. So you can use those drivers until proper Win7 drivers are available.

Hello

If you can’t see Windows 7 drivers for Satellite A300 this says everything: For this model are currently no Windows 7 drivers available.

The website that you posted is the US page and so you can’t find the A300 model but as far as I know the A305 is very similar to A300.

Hello

To end this story the drivers will normally be available some days or weeks after the official Windows 7 release in October.

Please think on the Vista and XP release: After the official release, some days and weeks later the drivers was released and I assume it’s the same as with Windows 7.

I have a little bit searched with Google and this is all I can say. I can’t find further more exact informations.

I have Satellite A300-1LI and I want to have Win7 too. I am 100% sure Toshiba will offer Win7 support for A300 models but before Win7 is not officially released the drivers will not be offered on Toshiba download page.

The same was with Vista. After official launch Toshiba has started to offer drivers for newest models first and later for older models too.

I hope that toshiba will offer support for A300 modells. I guess i have an older model - A300-1G5 PSAG4E and i saw that 1G5 is on the list of out of use (suspended) notebooks. Does anybody knows why this model is suspended?

thx in advance
