Windows 7: Windows 7100 RC1 64 bit... is slower?

Windows 7100 RC1 64 bit... is slower?

Has anybody else noticed that this build is slower than 7077 and 7077 was slower than 7068?

I keep getting windows locking up and crashing, which is strange.

I installed Nvidia's Windows 7 drivers, choosing not to restart my computer as I was reading a website and about 5 minutes later i got a blue screen.

Also when i went to install my M-Audio sound drivers (I've been using Windows Vista x64 drivers just fine in the previous builds) in this one it told me my operating system wasn't supported. It did work, however, running it in Vista SP1 compatibility mode and as i'm not actually running the OS it's intended for i can't really complain. They work just fine now anyway.

Anybody else ran into anything like this?

Oh and of coarse, it was a clean install.

Mine seems to run faster than the 7000 build. I never bothered to try the other builds but 7100 seems solid.

Haven't noticed any slowdown. No crashes either.

How did you install it?

Mine has progressively been faster since 7048, 7057, 7068, 7077 and now 7100.

Just installed it with the disk, formatted the hard drive and ran it all properly.

Burned the disk ultra slow too, which i normally can't be assed to do.

Strange **** man, it's actually calmed down a bit now, hope it'll stay this way.

Hey "dook"
How's it going so far??

I am currently doing a full install of 4 systems on a new box I just finished building (MoBo=Gigabyte 3100 series{older design, but new} Intel C2Duo 6450=2.13Ghs, 4Gig mem, 2 500G Hdds, nVidia 7200 GS and Intel 31{on MoBo} with 3 monitors), I have installed WinXP sp3 (x86) and Win XP sp2 (x64) and Win 7-7100 x86, all on the same drive (different partitions) and am currently installing the Win 7-7100 x64 on another partition.

What I have noticed in the install and operations so far, by log files and background monitoring, using a serial port to another computer, is the driver issues. a lot more drivers are installed and examined by the Win 7-7100 OS during Install. As for the slow operation, It has a lot to do with your Service settings. Primarialy with your network settings. I always disable HomeGroup controls and settings, which increases my system speed, cause I have many computers that are not Win 7.


edit:
I just finished the full install and made my regular settings, during boot up Win 7 x64 is about 20 sec's faster than 7077 and 7068.
Still testing, will let you know of any other changes.

20 secs? Fair play to you if you can see the difference.

faster with each release

I habitually re-format before I do a clean instal with each new release. It can be a bit of a hassle but not having DLL conflicts, Blue Screens and freezing is worth it. On build 7057 I failed to do a clean install and it caused lot's of problems. I had blue screens and freezing IE8. I upped my memory to 8GB from 4 and it made a huge difference too.

The Wheel is turning and it can't slow down!

After my mod settings to the Service's, It is now 75 sec's faster than the Win 7-7068.
and 95 seconds faster than WinXP x64 (sp2) version.

Then latest Boot up speed has been 24 seconds. ( of course, no extra software is yet installed.).

Well the seas seamed to have calmed somewhat to me, although after leaving it on last night i found it had shut down at some point and when i logged back on it gave me the "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" error, which isn't too nice!
