Windows 7: Windows 7 build 7000 challenges

Windows 7 build 7000 challenges

Gentlemen and Ladies,

I am auditioning WIndows 7 BUILD 7000 and and also a WIndows 7_64bit (questions, regarding 64bit, I will leave to another post).

Although I have stacks of integrations, I am using a Sempron LE-1250 with 3 gig of RAM and a Gigabyte M61PME-S2P board for test purposes. I fully expect to replace my creaky XP office computer with this Windows 7 OS.

My first impression was a very unscientific "feel." Windows 7 felt nearly as solid as my Ubuntu platforms. I installed very little software to start, Outlook 2003 (it is my office cpu afterall) and AVG antivirus. Then, I auditioned the Media Player (a great deal of my computer usage is devoted to excerpting live musical performances and editing documentaries).


#1) Media Player 11 has a handy dandy picture adjustment. I can't find it on Media Player 12. I have downloaded plug-ins, but no "enhancement additions." 12 has beautiful codecs and magnificent sound, but I can't adjust the brightness, for example.

#2) This is embarrassing. Foxfire and Yahoo IM cause the platform to crash. OK, I took them off. But, alas, it has ceased operation twice since then. No prior warning, just off she goes, like I have a short on the mboard. Other OS's work, so there is not short. Is 7000 crashware? I have updated religously.

Any insight would be very much appreciated.

Windows Vista and 7 dual boot

If you are in fact using build 7000, then you are using a VERY out of date build that I'm surprised is still functioning (the betas for Windows 7 are expiring at this point). The most recent downloadable build is 7100 (I'm talking legally, from MS) and the current build is 7600. I suspect you are not using 7000, and it will help us to help you if you would give us an accurate build number. Otherwise, find a more recent build and give that a run, I'm confident you'll be pleased!

Windows 7 Beta build 7000 bi-hourly shutdowns will begin July 1st, 2009. You will be alerted to install a released version of Windows and your PC will shut down automatically every 2 hours. On August 1st, 2009 if you are still on the Windows 7 Beta your license for the Windows 7 Beta will expire and the non-genuine experience is triggered where your wallpaper is removed and “This copy of Windows is not genuine” will be displayed in the lower right corner above the taskbar.

Your feedback on Windows 7 X64 Build 7000...
I would like to know what people think of the X64 bit build 7000 on this site? I personally have not installed it just yet, but at this current moment, I'm downloading it with 37% complete. Startup and Shutdown times/issues? Playing small and large audio/video files? Audio/video drivers?...

Windows 7 build 7000
I now have this up and running and am reporting from said installation. It is definitely more responsive, more finished and much smoother. As I finish off my installation I will report back.
