It can also mean to make sure your BIOS is running the latest firmware and flash updates, so your system has the most modern functionality your hardware vendor offers.

I've also found that it is best to have the BIOS settings as close to the defaults as possible.  Sometimes settings optimized for performance have blocked the install of an OS.

Depending on what games can be played on Win 7 I may just install that but if some older games can't play on 7.I will be installing a second HDD with it on it.
