Yay!. Well i got it to work and i just installed a fresh new full copy. Is it necessary to use the other disc for drivers and apps or is the computer ready to rock after the install??

Use the guide in my sig to make sure all your drivers are updated. You can also fill in your system specs.

Many are finding that the Win7 installer has better drivers than other sources like your computer maker's driver CD or Support Downloads webpage for your computer model.

If you have performance problems with the drivers you added from CD, you can try System Restore to before when they were added and try running with the drivers Win7 gave you.
