Default Re: windows 7 beta

well, i tryed UPGRADING, and tryed a clean install. upgrading is done from inside windows itself by just running the disc and i get ATA/ATAPI drive errors. and then when i try to do a clean install by booting from the disc it just gives me "OSimage, no wininstall" and i tryed upgrading by doing a virtual disc mount...still same ATA errors.

Yeah but it's worth the money. I remember buying Vista Home Premium the day it came out and I'm glad I did. I'm probably gonna feel the same way.

Well that is why they are coming out with a new one. This one will take the place of Vista, and I am sure they are going to try to fix a lot of stuff with it.

Is it just me, or does it sound like it's looking for RAID drivers and that's why it can't upgrade, or find the install?

It takes up a significant amount less than XP, right? From what I've been reading online, that's what it seems like.

"Another crucial improvement for Windows 7 over Windows Vista is that 7 will run on a range of machines, from low-specification netbooks to high-powered desktops. On our mid-range Studio Hybrid, 7 was certainly more impressive than Vista, although there were the bugs that are acceptable in a test beta version, especially to do with the anti-virus programmes that are currently still very specific to Vista.

Micorosoft say that the operating system will be happy on, for instance, an Asus EeePC. Given that the EeePC sometimes struggles to run its cut-down version of Linux, that’s quite some claim, and I’d be eager to see how true it really is. "

That's quite a statement.

7 will be amazing. After Vista received the service pack 1 update, it was a decent operating system. I do hope we get better security options with Vista.
