Windows 7: Dual booting question.

26 Aug 2010   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

No problem at all. Yes I did create a virtual machine through vmware a couple of days ago to try to fix the error I was getting on my game. It was basically useless because the game lagged. I'm assuming it's my on board graphics that is causing the problem of the lag so I resorted to dual boot.

When I get any kind of lag, I google the repeat errors in the Event Viewer>Admin View to solution. Also check the Performance Log by clicking through WEI score on Computer>Properties to access Advanced Tools. Look for cued issues at top, study the Performance Log, then Generate a System Health Report.

You can also regain some performance by unchecking all msconfig>Startup entries except AV and gadgets, as other programs don't need to start with computer, are freeloaders on RAM/CPU and can spy on you.
