You guys are great. I'm reinstalling, even though the laptop is less than two weeks old, because I made several registry changes trying to get my 32-bit gadgets working in this 64-bit OS. I don't have any short term memory so I don't really remember what I did in the registry. The 32- bit gadgets work perfectly in this desktop, which is also x64, but only two of them work in the laptop and I don't understand why.
Update: Well, the installation is finished, except for all the updating. The only difference I notice is that my previous F partition on Disk 0 has changed to E and I'm showing Disk 1 as Drive D, which is as it was; however, I'm also showing, at the bottom of the list in Disk Management CD-ROM O DVD 5.23 GB Online and W7SP1_ULTIMATE (F) 5.23 GB UDF Healthy (Primary Partition). I've never seen this happen before during any other installation I've done.
