Windows 7 Home Premium E Differences

Hi,

This might have been covered already but am I correct in thinking that there are not any other differences in the E version apart from the internet broswer not being included?


Thanks,

As far is i know the IE thing is the only difference.

Windows 7 E is Windows 7 without Internet Explorer 8 — or any other browser — preinstalled. The company is intending to release Windows 7 E in Europe in the hopes of potentially heading off the worst of the remedies expected to be imposed by European Commission authorities who have yet to issue their final rulings in the Opera browser-bundling antitrust case against Microsoft.

And you are not able to update from vista as far as i know. You have to make a clean install.

tbh i wouldnt mind if they removed wmp its an awful media player which i never use.

i think microsoft os's should come without things like wmp,windows msgr etc and if you want them you can download them from the windows site if your os is genuine.

Some info on Win7 E install

Quote:
Go to your preferred browser of choice and instead of running the application, save it to your preferred storage device whether that is a DVD, USB or an external storage device, have that handy for when you install Windows 7 as this will be needed for you to be able to get onto the internet.
Seams no inbuilt way to get a browser. Not ideal for the less tech savy people.

Can you install internet explorer 7 on Windows 7 instead of 8?

Hi,

Ok thanks for your replies.

I take it at the moment there is no way to perform a repair install of this once its been lunched due to it not having an upgrade option?

I would say that you could use ie7 as they do state explorer of your choice.

They also have an N version which has no WMP & no internet explorer, same price though.
