Windows 7: Rolling back to XP

Frostbite

 

Probably the best way as the boot partition (active partition) was D: Deleting them and reinstalling will sort that.

Yeah, the only reason I am rolling back to XP is because of problems with my motherboard and wireless, I'll be back to Win7 when it (and my hardware) are fully compatible with it :)

And I can make my games partition larger as it was getting a bit on the small side!

If you want to give a try to Windows 7 again just install Sun VirtualBox 2.2.4 (it is free) and install Windows 7 in a virtual machine.
You will be able to make a lot of tests and there your network should work.


And you can now natively mount the VHD in VirtualBox.

Hello Takeshi.


Yes, that's what I did, start over from the beginning and re-install everything.

I'm pleased to see you're getting it sorted.

Windows 7 can now run VM nativly, along with virtual XP.

Only a primary partition can be marked "active" and only see one primary, your XP 64.

Looks like you got it, ;D

Good to hear that your not giving up on Seven entirely for this machine, in due time better drivers and more of them will be available.
