Windows 7: Installed Win7 Pro 32-bit on my Dell Dimension 8300

08 Oct 2010   #11


We see that a lot.

Many people post negative comments about how Windows 7 is crap, 99% of the time is because of outdated hardware. If its not designed for Windows 7 why do some people expect it to work. (Not saying you did)

You could have tried compatibility mode or just like in your case, tried the Vista or even XP driver maybe it would work. If you had asked we maybe could have pointed right there.

Glad everything is fine, don't forget to create a system image so you won't ever have to reinstall again.
