Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Doesn't sound like a good idea to do that. Who knows what problems it could create.

Windows Seven buld 6801 / Mac Os X Leopard 10.5.5

Hi guys!
I managed to install Macdrive 7 in my Windows 7 build 7000 partition. I just deleted the condition entry on the Msi installer with Orca and it worked.
The problem is that the HSF partitions dont appear in My Computer, Even with the Mac Disk Explorer from Macdrive. I think this is because the HSF volumes are not mounted properly.
I noticed that in The Computer Manager the disks appear without an assigned letter.
Anybody familiar with this issue?

Why would you want to go to all this much trouble, the program has told you it can't run in Windows 7 so I would assume that until the program sorts itself out to be able to run in Windows 7 you are out of luck.
Don't forget this is a beta OS so not everything will work first time that's why its beta so people can find out what works and what doesn't and give feedback.
I had one site who's payment process did not work because Windows 7 uses IE8 so their site is not compatible with that yet.

Just compared Vista with Windows 7 - Poor Vista
I just had to post this. It's been a little while since I used Vista now. I purchased Vista a long time ago ( Vista Home Premium x64 ) and I decided to go back to my original XP Home Edition as Vista was generally a pain in the ass!
