Windows 7: Back to 7048 (seems faster than 7057)

As people have pointed out "Unofficial" or "Semi" official builds may have all sorts of debugging info in them and might be geared to solving particular problems which won't (hopefully) appear in the "Normal Public" builds.

So the fastest I've had is 7048. I've tried them all from the PRE beta until t057.

I'm now abandoning any further "upgrade" installs until the RC1 appears whatever the torrents may bring.

Cheers

I think you should give it some time and a few restarts, say a day or two.
In my case, installing 7057 caused hardware interrupts CPU usage, which other builds didn't, but after it downloaded all the Windows Updates and I had all the necessary drivers installed, this was solved.

However, since build 7000 , 7022 and 7048 didn't cause this performace loss, you still have a point...

I just installed Win-7, 7048 today.
My first install of Win-7 was a couple of months back and it was so bad that after just a few hours I reformatted the HD.

Now I'm trying it again and looking to find out what I can from yous guys that have some experience with it.

I got the download from a friend and the DVD was buggered up and the program wouldn't load.
Today I got a new copy of the DVD and went thru the install process again.
I'm running Win-7 now, with only a few #$%@^&#'s.

My only question is, "Where do I find the Activation key?".
You sure don't get one when you download the test version from the internet.
As it stands now, I have 30 days to test it and then it goes belly up!
It would sure be nice to be able to test this bad boy for more than just 30 days, without having to completely reinstall it.

Is there any Luv out there?

what version are you running

X-64
X-86

there's 2 sets of about 8 keys for each version.

Not sure if it's within the forum rules to post these publicly -- don't see why not as it's common knowledge but PM and I'll send you the correct key for the version you are running

Addendum -- I think you can still actually request the keys from Microsoft although the official downloads of W7 ended a while ago.

The Beta (build 7000) keys all work for th latest builds (so far).

cheers

I would think that M$ would be a little more liberal with their TEST releases.
Locking up a TEST program with an Activation key seems like a little bit of OVERKILL.

It is easier from a technical point of view to continue to use the built in systems of keys and to supply freely available keys than to specially engineer the code to produce a key less version.

It also provides a test of the actual activation mechanism as part of the Beta process, as any security mechanism that is used may be affected by many different variables.

1) installation took about 5 minutes longer w/ 7057 (still pretty quick-25 minutes)

2) 7048 a bit quicker (not by much, but still noticeable)

3) no issues running WEI with 7000, 7048, or 7057 (even though 7000 gives me a 6.0 and 7048 and 7057 gives 5.9)

4) Forceware 181.71 big improvement over 179.23 and 179.43
181.71 is now offered in windows update and is definitely an improvement

Hi Doc

Join the Microsoft Connect site - Microsoft Connect - and you can get Beta keys from there still. Each key is good for up to 5 machines and you can request more if needed.
Be patient tho, I find the MS Connect site the worst for not being able to connect too...LOL!! Constantly I get the "IE Cannot Display Page" or the sign in page that won't allow you to sign in. Ugh..
Sometimes I find if I Google MS Connect I can get in that way. Even with IE8 being RC1 in 7057, I'm still finding it buggy with page displays that Compatibility View can't fix.

I would agree with this, it won't even install on my pc (unlike every other build), but works better than any other build on my laptop

Its all very hit and miss with the leaked builds, i have been lucky until 7057.
