I don’t have any particular exotic hardware on my system, but Windows 7 still struggled to find drivers for basically everything. Screen resolution was limited to 640 x 480, and my external mouse didn’t work because apparently Windows 7 doesn’t have USB support. Bizarre. I’ll spare you the details of what I had to do to get the wireless working, but let’s just say it involved 27 hours of crying.
My advice would be to go to a ticketmaster outlet, and not trying to buy them online, or better yet, find somebody in a town a ways away to buy them for you, since the merchants where they are at wont have a ton of people trying to get to them.
