Windows 7: Confused and Disgruntled Help Please

Confused and Disgruntled Help Please

Hi All

Right, got a new 1tb disk in the post today, and couldnt wait to have a play on windows 7 (im doing a clean install by the way)

being a student in the uk I downloaded the x64 bit proffesional edition through the digital river app and ended up with these 3 files....

setup1.box
setup2.box
win7-p-retail-en-us-x64.exe

to be honest I was expecting an .iso, looking on the internet for solutions I downloaded the x15-65733.iso and the usb/dvd booting tool (from toms hardware)

this is where the problems started

I burnt the .iso and the first and second win 7 install attempts crashed but then the 3rd worked. So i though everything was ok but it wasnt

I checked in win 7 i had the 64bit version but it was the premium not the professional edition which I downloaded (i didnt register the key by the way)

the 2nd problem is that it crashed every 5 mins surfing the net


does anyone know the correct install procedure for me or which .iso is the right one to download, im a bit miffed cos I have spent 30 and have no windows 7 to show for it.


Thanks in advance

Imgburn works best of all. Has never failed me, while all others have. Burn at 4x with verify to be sure.

Am quite confused re this
Having just read this article I still not sure what it is telling me. I get the impression that Microsoft want to swallow all the small fish and churn out one big one of it's own. I don't like this idea and would certainly put me off installing 8 - if I was so inclined which of course I am not...

Confused about SSD
Hello everyone, Now... I have a few questions in relation to the Solid State Drive. 1. Does it replace the HDD completely? 2. I have 600GB space on my current HDD. I cannot even find an SSD that size. The most I've seen is around 250-300GB and they can be $1,000+. Surely it isn't...
