It usually leaves something behind that should not be there.
I agree, and I will reformat windows 7 64 bit. Furthermore I also think that installing the approved fw410 win7 driver on a fresh system instead of uninstalling the prior one before, is the way to go. I will receive my ads pyro card on tuesday so it might be a good plan to reformat the computer on that date, since installing fw410 using the old firewire card sounds like a bad idea.
Thanky you for replying.
