XP, 7 32/64bit

Sorry, didn't notice the graphical part was there.
The "raw" drive was a blank disk in my dvd drive.

XP, 7 32/64bit

Thanks. Now all I need help with are two more things
4. How many "ticks" of the mouse wheel to make the icons on the desktop to be roughly the same size as they were on XP? Also, what is the font of icon text from XP, so I can change them to make the icons the same size as XP in shape and font.

7. I'm trying to use homegroups to connect my laptop and desktop. I've gotten it so that I can print from my laptop to the printer attached to my desktop, and I am able to access my external hard disk that is attacked to my desktop from my laptop.
But I can't access my desktop's desktop folder from my laptop. It says I don't have rights, even after I have set my desktop's C drive to be shared..
Before I went to 7 on my desktop, I was able to access files on my desktop folder and external drive with no problem.

Hi, I'm new here - I have been having problems with Windows XP Pro 64 since the moment I installed it, and thought I would try out Windows 7 64 to see how much things have improved. In many ways I like it better, but I did have some questions. First, I am running build 7000 - by running...
