Default Re: Windows 7 Release Candidate now available for download!

I've tried using rws and at times ended up seeing bad installs with the 7000 builds. There's also another method of mounting the iso on a virtual drive using the VirtualCloneDrive program that simulates a dvd drive.

I finally got around to installing w7 rc 64-bit yesterday and it seems a lot better than the build 7057 I was running before. It seems more stable and has more compatibility. It even installed a pre-release driver for my 8400M GS!! I was happy about that since the HP driver wasn't working.

Very nice tommy boy! My mom still has the old W7 beta on there. I'm gonna get the RC soon. I love how W7 can be run very nicely with just an 8400gs. That's what my mom's using actually.

I run a Radeon HD 2600XT 512mb card and smooth as silk for just about anything with both RCs on. You have another 6 weeks roughly to download one or both at this point.

Actually what you are seeing there now is no longer DX10 but DX11. Remember this is going to be the "next version of Windows".

You may have a big problem since your cpu and board alike have to offer support for virtualization to start with! Each of the two big names in cpus for desktops has their own tool available for seeing if the model you does.

Note the AMD link brings you nowhere since apparently the recent and latest dual and quad core models already see that support. Older Intel Core Duos and certain select Core 2s and quads unfortunately don't. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vir...gure-bios.aspx

The board manifacturer on the other hand may have information for the bios settings if that model has the support to begin with. On the system here the XP mode proceeded by the latest Virtual PC beta went on and runs without a hitch even the need for any setting change in the bios! I seem to have made out ok in that direction.
