Well just recieved my copy of Win 7 Home Premium Friday. , So I decided to give it a try. I loaded it on an extra 160 gig drive I had so I would not ruin my XP64Pro install.
It loaded well, installed some programs that I had a hard time loading onto xp64 system. The GUI looks great, loads fast, works well, right until I wanted to share with my already running home network.
I have 2 other computers runing xp pro, one is my hometheatre pc, and then a Vantec NAS drive. Connecting to these is very flakey at best. I can sometimes get a connection and sometimes not.
So I have reverted back to my XP64Pro boot drive, I'm going to put together another system I have to run the Win 7 on and study these forums and when I can get Win 7 networking on my network, then I will try it on my main system.
Just thought I'd share this with you.
Cheers Mike H
