Windows 7: What don't you like about Windows 7?

Windows 7 Professional, Vista Ultimate, Xp Professional
 
 

Ive installed the full version on a few of my laptops and Im very happy with it so far.

My only issue (and this is acceptable because the ) is that there are no Toshiba Netbook hotkey drivers yet. I tried the XP driver and it didnt work so I removed it...oh yea the Synaptics driver for it doesnt have an option to turn off the touchpad while typing which is really annoying. Again, no major issues and a lot more good than bad.

My 13.3" Toshiba worked perfectly, its just the netbook that Im having troubles.

**Edit***the 13.3 isnt perfect, sometimes when it boots the touchpad doesnt work. Just sometimes.

Yeah, it's a shame the manufacturers who knew W7 was on it's way for 3 yrs, didn't bother to have their drivers ready for their customers who already paid.

They rather focus on selling.

Sell and abandon is the name of the game.

If you need mounting software Alcohol isn't the only one at there...

Why don't you try either PowerISO or MagicDisc?

I have three hard drives on my computer. When I installed the Windows 7 beta, it installed part of the system on a separate drive. So next month when the official version is released, unless I can disconnect two of the hard drives in cmos, I am going to have to open the case and disconnect two of the hard drives before installing to prevent this from happening again.

What you mean is probably that the bootfiles are on one drive and the Os is on another, right?

That happens when you install on a drive which is not the active drive.
Or when there are more than one active drives present.

The best way to go to the BIOS (cmos is something else), and disable the two drives you want to exclude.

No need to open your case.

You got it and thanks for the info. I'll be certain to change my partitions when I do the clean install later this month.
