Are the drivers specific to Vista 32 bit? I've found that some drivers are cross compatible between Vista and 7 but not all of them. Also if you had a 64-but version of 7 you cannot use 64-bit drivers. Also is this Vista disk from the same manufacturer? If not you can't use it.

As a side note 1.4 gb of ram is not sufficient for Vista. With that little you would have been better off with 7 since it handles memory slightly better. 2 gb is the absolute minimum with either OS though. Without at least 2 gb more than likely your system will be relying on virtual memory which is really slow.

You will probably have to get a Vista driver however if you are using a Vista disk from another manufacturer then you will need to revert.
