    Hi everyone,

    Before anyone asks, I am the same Dwarf as on Vista Forums.

    I thought that I would join this forum as I am interested in the new OS, although I will probably wait until it has come out of Beta before actually using it. In the meantime, I intend to browse this forum and learn about the features of this OS.





    Just a few questions to begin with:
    1. What are the system requirements?
    2. What about drivers? From what I've seen, there are no Beta drivers yet available from the hardware manufacturers (at least, for my system), so do Vista drivers work for the new OS?
    3. When I do install W7, I shall probably dual-boot along side Vista. Does the same problem exist regarding System Restore as was the case between Vista and XP, or has this been resolved?
    4. What are the main differences between Vista and W7, and will the average user notice these?

    Hi Dwarf, Welcome to the dark side,

    Here are some answers for you,

    1. Q: What are the system requirements?

    This is on the Download Page for The Beta Windows 7 Beta Customer Preview



    Welcome to the Windows 7 Beta Customer Preview Program

    Published: January 2009

    • Learn about Windows 7 Beta
    • Test Windows 7 Beta in your lab environment
    • Stay informed on updates and resources


    Windows 7 is…
    the next release of the Windows client operating system, built on the secure foundation of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Performance, reliability, security, and compatibility are core tenets of this release as we collect your feedback to meet our engineering goals of making Windows 7 the best-performing and most stable Windows operating system to date. New innovations in the product are designed to augment your ability as an IT professional to better provision and manage increasingly mobile PCs, protect data, and improve both end-user and personal productivity.
    See Windows 7 for yourself
    We are inviting IT professionals around the world to work with the Windows 7 Beta in their lab environments and secondary PCs to help ensure smooth adoption when the final product is available and to gather feedback from real-world settings.
    How can you get involved?
    1. Take a look at some of the new features and functionality in Windows 7 as part of our Springboard Series guidance on the Windows Client TechCenter on TechNet. As a partner you can also see additional resources on the Microsoft Partner Program portal.
    2. Download the Beta for a hands-on trial. For a limited time, Microsoft is making this pre-release version of Windows 7 available to the first 2.5 million people who download. Ready to take a test drive? You can get one by trying the Windows 7 Beta. We think you’ll have the best experience if:

    • You are willing to participate as an active beta tester and provide feedback to help us complete Windows 7.
    • You have an extra computer available to dedicate to testing beta software.
    • You can back up your PC, install and reinstall Windows, and reconfigure your home network connection.
    • You’re comfortable troubleshooting your own PC problems. There’s no technical support available for the Beta.
    • You understand how to burn an ISO file to a DVD using your computer’s DVD burner.
    • You have a system recovery disc and know how to use it.
    • You enjoy participating in an interactive community of beta testers, sharing experiences and feedback in real-time.


    Microsoft isn’t providing technical support for the Beta and isn’t responsible for business-related downtime. Don’t install the Beta on your primary home or work computer. When the Beta expires on August 1, 2009, you’ll need to reinstall a released version of Windows to keep using your computer. (See Installation Instructions.)
    These are the Microsoft minimum hardware recommendations for systems that will be running the Windows 7 Beta. These recommendations are specific to the beta release and are subject to change:

    • Processor: 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
    • Memory: 1 GB of system memory
    • Hard drive: 16 GB of available disk space
    • Video card: Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)
    • Drive: DVD-R/W drive
    • Internet connection (to download the Beta and get updates)

    Note: Some product features of Windows 7, such as the ability to watch and record live TV or navigation through the use of “touch”, may require advanced or additional hardware.


    2. Q: What about drivers? From what I've seen, there are no Beta drivers yet available from the hardware manufacturers (at least, for my system), so do Vista drivers work for the new OS?
    A: Most Vista Drivers are working fine on windows and those that aren't can still be used in compatibility mode most of the time.
    3. Q: When I do install W7, I shall probably dual-boot along side Vista. Does the same problem exist regarding System Restore as was the case between Vista and XP, or has this been resolved?
    A: I am triple booting with Vista, Windows 7 x86 and x64 and I have had no issues with System Restore, although one thing to note is the first time you boot up the new OS you will not see your other primary partitions and you will only see them after going into disk manager and assigning Drive letters to your other Partitions.
    4. Q: What are the main differences between Vista and W7, and will the average user notice these?
    A: The main differences you will notice is the Taskbar functions and apearance, Libraries for all your different media in one place, Aero Snap and Aero Peak and a lot less bloat ware.
