I had an honest go at Win 7 (clean install on my new system) I read many reviews and found most to be positive with not many problems. Well, I had too many problems in the little time I played with it. System hung at welcome screen on 3 rd boot after installing the video card drivers. Would not load my motherboard drivers or Video card drivers off of CD's.
Win 7 comes with a IE 8 32 bit and IE 8 64 bit ver. The 64 bit ver does not support Adobe Flash, and the 32 bit ver has some major problems with not going to some links you click on. For example... if I click on a link on this page... Mighty Web Designs Custom Canadian web designs Internet marketing Photo restorations Clients Page00
none of the links would open in a new window useing IE 32, it will work with IE 64 fine. I know I could use another browser, but hey IE should work. The 64 bit ver not supporting flash is useless to me as a designer.
Any way, now I must go back to Win XP
Is it ok to delete the 100 MB partition that Win 7 made?
I deleted Partition 2 already, but I don't remember creating the partition after that or formating the hard drive. (yet there it is). Don't you have to create one after? I am not a computer expert. Right now my hard drive looks like this...
610478 MB Disk 0 at ID 0 on bus 0 on Atapi (MBR)
Unpartitioned space 1MB
C: Partition 1 (System Rese) NTFS 100 MB (75 free)
D: Partition 2 (NTFS) 610374MB (609843 free)
Unpartitioned space 4MB
If I leave it and install Win XP, will the drive show up as C: or D:? Are there any problems you can see that might happen if I install XP on Partition 2? Could I or should I, merge the 2 partitions? or just leave it?
