Yes, do a fresh install, and hang on to the 7100 build, you never know what you might need it for down the road.

(If you made a bootable usb stick from an earlier version - or even VISTA just delete the files and copy the files from the W7 ISO to the USB stick. The old bootrec is fine - even if it's the x-86 bootrec -- it will still work even for installing the x-64 bit OS - you don't have to wipe it and create a new active partition on it as per the tutorial).

Only 3 apps installed so far

Photoshop CS4
MS Office 2007
Canon DPP / EOS camera utility.

so not rigorous testing -- but 7127 seems to be snappier and video just "seems" less jerky when scrolling web sites etc etc.

My impressions are that it just SEEMS a bit better than the RC - but of course this isn't a scientific study.

So if you have this build I'd go for it over 7100 -- keys still work BTW and didn't have any problems with Windows Update upgrading my Office 2007 to SP2.

Cheers

Kind of off topic, but did you run DPP/EOS Utility in 7100? I am and the EOS Utility doesn't recognize my 5D Mark II or 40D although they show up in explorer. I don't know if it's a software issue or Windows.

Just curious.....Where did 7127 come from?
Why isn't it billed as RC2 or some such?

Where did y'alls find 7127 for download?
Is it bigger or smaller than RC1?

Oh, so many questions!

Build 7127 is a leaked build and has not officially been released to joe public. It's available via torrents I believe. I'm sure someone can point you in the right direction.

Well, I started at a couple builds before 6801. I loved it.

Most of my testing has been x64 on a Dell M1330 since I use that 10-16 hrs a day, although I have W7 on all my machines. A few issues at first with nVidia drivers (BSOD) and the fingerprint reader. Other little issues that didn't really matter.

Since then, I've tried 8 or 10 subsequent builds. Each one seemed better. Never any backsliding like some have experienced.

On a more consistent basis starting around 7057, I've been running the Restart-Time script right after installing, after the second reboot, after the fifth, tenth, twentieth and so on. All on unaltered/untweaked fresh installs except drivers, CCleaner, and Process Explorer, pretty much.

Believe it or not, the biggest improvement seems to have been from 7100 to 7127. Average restart times (regular HDD, not the OCZ SSDs I've posted about) have gone from around 60 seconds to 50 seconds or less (that's english units, metriticians will have to convert....LOL).

And all those "other little issues that didn't really matter" ..... they have all cleared up with 7127. Things like the Dell Quickset volume indicator that flashes on the screen when you mute or change the volume. For the first time so far, it works in 7127.

So for me, W7 is ready.

I just called my Software Guru and he said he'd have 7127 for me tomorrow.
So that little problem is solved.

I just need to buy him lunch! No biggie!

Personally, I've seen no real problems running RC1 on my home-built PC.
My MSI mobo and AMD Athlon 5200+, X2, cpu take it in stride.
Even my Winfast Video card works great.

Overall, it would appear to this reader, that most of the people reporting problems with any new OS are running Dells.
Just one of many reasons there will never be a Dell in this house.

Y'all have a great day now, Y'hear?

Win 7 64 bit, 7127
 
 

Using a Dell XPS 410 here. I've had very few problems with Windows 7. Any problems I've had were mainly on earlier builds.

I was given a Dell XPS 400, that was failing, but Dell refused to fix it.
They said that it had a bad motherboard and an old style CPU.
Well, all that was true, plus it had a very weak PSU which finally failed.
At that point, I scrapped out the PC, saving components that I could use, like the two Maxtor 160 gig SATA2 hard drives, the video card and modem.
The case, psu and mobo is now somewhere in the local land fill.

Dell replaced that PC, for a friend of mine, with a new one. It wasn't much better, because the PSU failed in less than one year of service.
I replaced that P.O.S. with an Antec Earthwatts 650 and there have been no more PSU related problems.

The PSU that I removed from that Dell, had bulging filter capacitors in it.

Such is life in the fast lane!
