You're jumping to conclusions. So we can better assess your compatibility with Windows 7, please put your system specs in your User CP/Profile. I've heard of low-end computers resulting in performance gains from upgrading to Windows 7 Beta, so perhaps this is related to a faulty ISO or a motherboard/BIOS issue.

XP/Vista/Windows 7 builld 7000

just so you know, i loaded windows 7 on a machine i built three years ago for my son now lying unused. abit motherboard, amd processor, 2 gb ram on that unit. saphire graphics, fired right up, except for onboard lan. an external nic card solved that in under a minute (dlink). if you can get vista compat drivers for it, it will run. btw, it runs great.

if you are having issue, my first question would be are you using a brand name (i only use abit or asus myself) motherboard or a proprietary board from dell or similar manufacturer?

You can install the old AIM 5.9. I don't like the new AIM (6.0+) and immediately downloaded and installed AIM 5.9 without any problems.

NSOD (No Screen Of Death) - just death
My system works great, except that if I leave it unattended for a few hours it goes to sleep then, after a while, powers off. (Maybe there actually is a BSOD but I'm never around to see it. The system's sleeping anyway and the monitor's shut off) When I restart I get the "your system crashed"...
