Lou Vega a thump to the brain

Finally got around to installing Windows 7 on a real machine. Starting to test apps to see which issues I may have with stuff I use every far the biggest thing I found is my video driver defaults to the Windows one. Not a big deal since this machine won't be the one I use Windows 7 with in the future for the final release.

I'm actually posting this via Live Writer...I had seen somewhere people had issues with it possibly, but I'm not having issues with it.


As you can see too, my system rating is pretty horrible but this machine will do for testing. I think I'm gonna image my main laptop and test it under that to see what a different score I can get.

I swapped out the hard drive on my tablet pc and did a fresh install over the weekend. No hardware issues, but Bluetooth connections were a little hard to get connected. AVG installed fine, a problem I had with the XP to Vista migration. But one big failure. Windows 7 does not work with Mac shares, even after making the typical Vista NTLM tweek. Found a couple of forum posts that confirmed it is an issue. Since our home file server is a Mac Mini, I had to go back to Vista for now.

I installed the RTM version on three laptops, one of which was running on Windows Vista and the other two on Windows XP. For users upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7, for example, a 32-bit Vista Ultimate to a 32-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, the installation is a smooth process.
