Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hello Saverio, and welcome to the forum

I have also been using 7 for the past weeks, it has not been problem free, maybe due to mistakes by myself, :) but there have also been no problems that I could not sort out.

There will be no going back for me, and my only problem will be what to do with all the copies of Vista that I have

XP pro, Win7 Ultimate x86

my first install was a dual-boot with XP pro. I didn'n expect to keep 7, so I simply chose a free 10GB partition to try it.
As it turned out, 7 worked great. (where my notebook + Vista RC1 = hell on earth )

So I decided to give the official beta build a more comfy home^^
Single booting now. I'm Using the XP disk as ext. USB-storage.
Basically, since it's a XP install with the USB modifications, I could run it from there, but I never bothered to try it; there was simply no need for it (so far).

Being a Vista 'hater' from the word 'GO', I was very wary about Windows 7, I need not have worried, as I now use it as my 'main' OS 24/7 Stable as a rock and undergoing some heavy overclock testing day by day.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit


Thanks everyone for the great welcome and response!

Well you gus and gals have made my mind up!

I've had a copy of vista Ultimate x64 ready to install, and downloaded all my device drivers for it, so hopefully it should all be good to go.

I've got the apps I use now with vista ready versions and where possible x64 versions.

I dont really have any games just lots of 3d modelling and cad software which are all certified vista ready and compatible, so that should be cool

I've been saving a nice 15K scsi drive for this so hopefully since Se7en has been stripped of some of it's flab, it should hopefully boot like a rocket!

Also I've been reading that it's got a feature that allows people with poor eyesight to still use large resolution monitors buy adjusting font sizes within all apps and windows - my partner has poor eyesight and at the moment we use a resolution manager to allow her user profile to load at 786 x 1024 instead of the monitor's native 1200 x 1600.
If this is the case, then it beats apples equivalent hands down

Anyway thanks for the votes of confidence, you've made my mind up for me!

I'm reading a lot about 'builds' when the software updates do you get the latest build release or are you stuck on the one you downloaded initially?

I'm pretty happy right now because after eight agonisingly long hours of failing, i've finally managed to dual boot OSX Leopard and Windows 7. I know it's Leopard and Snow Leopard and Lion are out, I plan to upgrade soon but i'm enjoying it while it's working :) ...

Finally, guys, finally! I got my hand on a brand-new Windows 7 Home Premium! It's a full version, too. I really have to thank my dad because otherwise I wouldn't be proceeding to backup everything today! But, I'll be keeping Vista...
