You should have included an option for people like me that have chosen to not dual boot at all, and install Windows 7 as the sole OS.

Other than that, cool idea for the poll...

I use it a lot but since i run a COD4 server with rconmax, i have to go to my vista computer when i want to play with my team members due to punk buster problems. As soon as i can get punk buster worked out,, Bye Bye Vista.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64
 
 

I have both 32 and 64 bit installed. What's Vista? Just kidding. I only boot into Vista if I need to see something to answer a ques. at the vistax64 forum or for a couple mission critical work things. Have a couple programs that are a little flaky in seven. Need to upgrade them.

Windows 7 Home - 64 Bit
 
 

I have a dual boot Vista 64, Windows 7(64), and a Partition for My Documents (ALL Data). I have Office 2003 Standard and I have not been able to get the Outlook Mail Backup program that works in Vista to work in Windows 7. I can backup contacts & Old mail to a file in Outlook - manually - but so far I haven't wanted to do that. I bought a new dv5-1125nr (4GRam/250GHD/2GVideo Radeon HD 3200) on 11/18/08 and as of 01/18/09 I started getting a 'immenient' Hard drive failure message. Two days latter HP overnighted a harddrive to me. I reinstalled a dual boot system just like before, only this time I used Vista 64-bit drivers for the install in Windows 7(64) as required. I now have both working very well. I am still experiencing a issue with ATI Catalyst not installing correctly in Windows 7(64) but my Video is working very Kool so far without the catalyst manager. I am keeping both to test Windows 7 for compatibility/comparison purposes, differences in either system, and well because I want to. God's Speed to all my W7 Forum persons - Patrick C

SEVEN x64
 
 

the only reason ive had to fire up vista in the last few months was to load ITunes, but i love 7, & i can access everything on my vista HDD through 7 anyway.

W 7 64-bit Ultimate
 
 

Hello all.


I primarily use 64-bit W7 for all I need, but sometime I'd like to throw it out of the window (pun intended) because of the imaging problems I encounter with IE 8 and my video card; even though I've tried different drivers. I too can access anything I need from my Vista or XP through W7. I do use 64-bit Vista if I'm doing something and I'm concerned with IE 8 locking up on me; though it's not as bad with this, "the official" Beta.

Good idea for the poll.

I just want to see what everyone is using and prefers. Personally I use western digital and seagate both. I have actually never had a seagate fail on me but I have had a western digital fail once just tonight so I rely on both as they are both pretty good brands. Brands I would avoid though...
