Whats the big deal about installing Build 7022 and all the "should I's/no you shouldn't"????

Dual boot or put it on another system. Take it for a spin and live a little, maybe learn a little. All these builds are not a life long commitment and are FOR TESTING. Its not like you have to decide which one to buy and your stuck with it. ITS FREE.

I dont get it. Who cares if it breaks or cant be fixed (doubt it) you always have Build 7000 to fall back on. I installed 7022 and its working great. No issues yet, and if there is I dont care, its not my main OS. I have my favorite laptop(files backed up) with build 7000 as my main OS and no regrets.
Where is your adventurous side?????. Its windows 7.

I like build 7022, firstly it is more recent (made about a week after the release of 7000) and has the mp3 bug patched already (one less thing to do when installing), it has the new IE8 RC1, and some other stuff....

Thew only strange thing that has happen (bear in mind i was playing around with system files) is this:



But i soon resolved it and got rid of the "Test Mode" after a bit of digging around...

Oh and the clock gadget is oversized compared to 7000 and the other gadgets which i did not like...

I like your answer Lappydog..

If the releaser you get it from is a well known uploader and you know you can trust his stuff, why not try it out on another partition for awhile.
Myself, I haven't even looked for it and probably won't for awhile yet. 7000 is working well and right now I just don't have a spare partition lying around...and I have 1 1/2 TB's already carved up into 13 partitions..!!! (I seriously gotta clean things up some)
I've got lotsa space still but nothing Unallocated and I don't want to shrinking things and go making new ones and then resizing this & that to do whatever..

I'll wait a bit

Thanks for the head ups guys. I'll be installing build 7000 then.

So, what do I have to fix and/or install?

EDIT

btw, I downloaded the beta in the first days in January and even got a unique serial key (with the F5 trick, remember?) and I still have the 10 public keys

From what I know, 7022 is only 32bit. That might help your decision. I did install it on my older computer as an upgrade and it seems to be running fine. Hopefully it has the same August kill date as 7000.

These are 'interim' builds, not released to public, not meant to be used by the public, and particularly, not suitable for 'general release'.

This board (and any other for that matter) could become very confused with people's issues regarding Windows 7 faults, if we were all using different builds, especially ones which have obviously been leaked.

We all need to be on the 'same' level here, if were to test and iron out Windows 7's faults/bugs before RC1, surely?

Since 7022 is a later release than 7000, of course its a release coming from within Microsoft.

It's not something that some user tweaked and released as a later version.It has been tested, re-furnished, checked and released to the public "off the record", like the 7000 was before it was announced an official beta.

Therefore, I'd go with 7022 as well, since after the beta, more releases will come out providing fixes, enhancements and improvemets based on the feedback of the previous versions.This build is one of them.

Now if you're not curious of what's new in every release, you could just sit back and enjoy the 7000 until August. As for me, I'm gonna test every single new release and enjoy the new features , even it's a 0001 subversion different.

I've never seen anything newer being worse than the older so far...only better.

edit: btw, the BETA keys provided by microsoft work with 7022 like they work with 7000.
edit2: As a reply to Scaramonga, indeed being on the same page would help, but W7 is still under construction....We do need to know what's coming next, since the latest and only the latest will remain.This is not a place for free support of a beta OS, it's a place of discussion of new features that are introduced to us, so we can learn how they work and how to use them better.

I never said this board was free support for Win7, but its definitely not true that this is just a discussion board.......so......

When someone requires help/assistance as regards anything Win7, we have to 'hope' whatever version they are using, is the same as the person trying to assist with the problem? Which of course, may not exist in future builds, because it has either been rectified and/or made worse?

If that's the case, fair enough, then 'tagging' posts beforehand would help:
