Use dynamic updates
When you upgrade over an existing Windows version, the setup program offers to check for dynamic updates If you have an active internet connection, be sure to take advantage of this option . Dynamic updates can include any or all of the following: critical updates to the setup program itself; improved or new versions of boot-critical drivers for storage, display, and network hardware detected on your system; and compatibility updates (also known as shims) for programs you're currently running . Rolling these updates in at the beginning of the process increases the likelihood that the Windows 7 setup will run correctly. After completing installation, you'll still need to connect to Windows Update to download critical updates for Windows and the most recent drivers for detected hardware .
