shipping date

Question?

If you order the actual upgrade version (i.e. Windows7 Home Premium) from MS or a listed vender

Are the DVDs available and how long is the shipping date

I see the reduced price offer is now between 26 Jun and 11 July or until the supply is exhausted

Thanks in advance for any info

I'm downloading via bittorrent Win7 7232 by SoLoR. Is it a trustworthy download? It's in .iso format - Made from 7232 VHD on 7229 iso.

I could'nt find the VHD file anywhere, but I guess like this is better, as I can try to do the "trick", instead of doing a clean install. It's going quite fast... so I hope to have it downloaded in 2-3 hours - Will report back when done

Windows 7 RTM Ultimate x64
 
 

the download is taking longer than expected because my PC restarted accidentally... I didn't realize this and the download was only at 5% an hour ago!

Now it's at 62%
EDIT: 90%... 20 minutes estimate as soon as it's finished I will install
EDIT 2: Finished downloadinh 30 minutes ago... I extracted .iso to a folder, set compatibility mode to Vista SP2, checked "always run as an administrator" and double click, install now and... a window pops up saying "Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation." "Error code:0xC0000005"

But if you leave the message alone.. finally you get a window saying do you want to check for updates... and then upgrade or advanced... so I click upgrade... but it says:You can’t do a typical upgrade using an installation disc that’s different from the language installed on your computer. Go online to see how to install Windows 7 and keep your files and settings.
I go to Control Panel, clock, language and region, and I set my language to English intead than spanish.... restarted PC - now I have my Pc in English (which I don't mind at all), but the error stays there and I still can't upgrade...

I suppose I will do a fresh install... I will backup important files and do it.

But if you know how to solve this issue please tell me!

Thanks, Hugo

Just installed 7232: Fresh Install. I saved on my 2nd HD all the .iso's and .exe's of programs, so it shouldn't take long to restore all my programs and games...

Thanks for your support, Hugo

PS- Now that I have the english version and a 72XX build I hope I will be able to update to newer versions!

EDIT:
Just Saw 7264 x64 leak... I guess I will have to update tomorrow...xD

I've upgraded from a build 7000 (beta) straight to build 7201 with no issues, you must manually edit the file that the installer checks to see what the min and max builds that upgrades are supported.

And way to go on being cocky

I haven't been able to find any info on when or if they'll be a 7260 x64 build - is there a reason there's not going to be one? Is 7230 x64 the last 64bit build? Sorry, just wondering :o
