I upgraded from 7000 t0 7068 yesterday .I have done too many OS installs and machine setups in the past to be able to enjoy doing it just for the hell of it.
Tedious is what it is..
Having decided that i will keep using Win 7 as my main system, and will swap over to the 32 bit version when the RC appears, my Win7 appraisal mission has been accomplished, for now.

That says it all...."my Win7 appraisal mission has been accomplished, for now."

Mine too....I have decided it's the best OS MS has produced to date and i'm switching. I just hope it does not turn into a "longhorn"....I think we're past that now but....you never know. I will be using it anyway. I have grown quite fond of it.

I've upgraded three times on my laptop and done one clean install over XP on a friend's.

I've got the feeling that I'll be doing quite a few installs for other people soon.

You should be asking how many times have you installed or reinstalled if not repair installed XP. I lost count between my own and other systems people had there!

For 7 let's now... the 32bit 7000 so far saw saw the intitial installation replaced to see the XP/7 dual boot since the first was over to the XP drive while booted in Vista at the time. 2 there plus the unlocked 32/64 Home Premium each only 1. The 64bit Ultimate 7000 saw 2 with a second on an ide drive added in later to see 7068 replace that now unplugged leaving a grand total there of "5"! for the 7000.

The 7068 did see a second install with the first going on the present stand alone for the x86 7077 while the ide was still in use. 7068 x64 wasn't still trying to get online with the x64 7000. 7068=2

One each for the 7077! As a general rule I rarely have to wipe a drive once a clean install is seen in working shape. Vista has seen about 5 total since it came out from swapping drives(ide to sata) along with one repair install back in 2007! Even that sees a better track record then XP!

6956 = once (One week and half before Christmas - Main Computer)
7000 = once (Mid-February - Main Computer)
7067 = Once (Virtual Machine)

I haven't kept 7000 because I had a problem after a reboot that my machine wouldn't boot at all even after a restore point restoration (before the install of the faulty program) and a system repair... had to format and I went back to Vista.

I installed 7067 on a Virtual Machine for the fun (768 MB of RAM) and the VHD is still there. I haven't touched it much since that it sux ass (perf wise - Once core of Core 2 and 768MB of RAM with a bad 3D acceleration chip (no aero)).

*sigh*

I MIGHT consider doing a dualboot but the thing is I just don't want to risk all my audio files in the process.

EDIT

all 32-bits

A dual boot that's all? Out of 4 sata and a single ide hard drive 3 of the 5 total see a dual boot setup on each! One of the 5 should reduce that to 3 out 4 due to being strictgly used for storage. The one seeing the latest 7077 x86 installation will eventually be 7's new home!
