I did clean install. -Discussion of illegal activities is not allowed - Rule 7: http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...rum-rules.html
7077 installs a little slower than build 7057. However, the 7057 I downloaded had desktop.ini errors.
Like 7077 it creates a 100 MB bootable partition called System Reserv -0. If this partition is removed then Windows 7 does not boot.
I find it is very much like Vista except it runs faster and has the option to upgrade. Like Vista, an image of Windows 7 can be deployed on any PC thanks to mergeide.zip. However, one must restore an extra partition, the system reserv -0.
I stopped many services including security centre, Windows Firewall and System restore.
I am curious to know if this OS will solve the headaches associated with the installation of Windows on SATA HD or on MBs with SATA drivers NOT present in the Windows.
If it does not then Microsoft needs better testers!
