Have fun, it is not as daunting or difficult as it may sound or look. Once you get it running, you might never want to go back to Vista. Good luck tomorrow!

Thank you.

I just believe it's better to post something useful than just post, but then again, we're in chillout room, I guess it's ok.

My name's Elias, btw. Glad to see friendly people around.

Well hello from Windows 7
Still sorting things out but thought I'd show my face from the new OS before tweaking a few more things, got to set up my WLM with all my accounts and what have you but so far so good.

Still got to sort out seeing all my stuff in Vista as well but can't rush things or I'll proabably screw something up.

I'll check out the rest of the new posts then go play some more and be back later

Hello Joan ! Glad to see you with W7.

Don't forget Windows Update. It will find the most compatible drivers for you system and install them.
