Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)

Well I guess it is about time for my 500th Post

I upgraded this InExpensive puter to the Official TechNet RTM x64 Ultimate

Being a Crazy Committed Tester, I did not do a Clean Install. I upgraded Build 7201 x64 since it had been running without any problems at all. I even added 2 more GB of Ram, an AirLink wireless USB adapter, Creative Optiva Pro WebCam, to the Build 7201 before I upgraded to the RTM. I didn't uninstall anything first. I made a bootable 8gb USB flash drive per the tutorials as my install media. Even added some extra folders of shareware downloads, Wallpaper, etc to have on the flash drive if needed. Everything went extremely well with no problems. It took about 45 minutes for the upgrade vs. the clean install of about 14 minutes. All my settings from Build 7201 transferred & so did my Gadgets & programs. Even AVG Antivirus. When I checked Device Manager, I had NO hardware errors! Therefore I must say that I was impressed with this install/upgrade with the Official TechNet RTM x64 Ultimate

Now I guess it is time to test the RTM on one of my " Dinosaurs "

Oldest "Dinosaur" Running Win7
