Windows 7: first upgrade to 7

14 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
 
 
first upgrade to 7

Well I used the wifes laptop as the ginny pig for my first windows 7 upgrade and what I thought would be fairly easy and not take along time...boy was I wrong. First I had to make the recovery disc's that she didn't make. That took a little over and hour. Then the upgrade; it was really straight forward but took almost 4 hours. I got the upgrade from MS for $29.99, Windows 7 home premium. The same place I got Office 2007 Ultimate for $59.99. She qualified with her student email address. So the whole process of downloading it and then installing it is what took so long. The download alone took almost 3 hours due to the wireless connection. The actual install just took a little over an hour. Let me say, it was well worth the wait. Now I'm jealous and want my upgrade.....that's gonna have to wait. I'm still waiting on parts for my rig to come in. I'm officially on the darkside now...lol.

I received my upgrade disk by courier late october and i put it in the drawer with the intention of doing the upgrade at a later date, but it got the better of me one night and dicided to go ahead and do the upgrade there & then.
Wow i should have done it the day it turned up, there is no looking back for me now i am really happy with Seven
