Just upgraded from Vista to 7 - very nice!

Hi, I just upgraded from Vista Ultimate to 7 Ultimate, and only one problem encountered, and that's with MS Project 2007 - I had to do a repair to get that to work. All in all, great new product from MS...much better then Vista running in a virtual box using Fusion3 and SnowLeopard. Cheers!

AS OTHERS HAVE SAID... WELCOME!

Now can we get you to buy a PC?


And then perhaps you can be in the next Microsoft TV ad...

that's really funny Darryl but we have one pc in our studio and no one will touch it. but everyone will run windows in a virtual window

So my ad would have to be "I'm a Mac in reality, but I'm a PC on reality TV" - or something like that...

You have to install Windows Easy Transfer from the Win7 DVD onto the XP machine

Run WET save to a second partition or external HD
