1 last question

Brink 1 last(I promise)question......they have finally mailed me a new disc hopefully with a COA attached.Is the COA disc specific or is that authentication code good to use with any copy of Windows 7.I ask obviously because having already installed it using the other disc i just want to type in the code from the new one without having to use the new disc....

Thanks again if you have time to answer

No problem Fluster. I'm happy to hear that you have recieved it. The product key number will be good on any same edition of Windows 7 and type (ex: OEM vs retail).

INSTALL ISSUES

Hey Shawn,
Glad to see your keeping up the quality work
Got a question for you. I had 7 installed(RTM) in a dual boot, and decided to just dump it, and do an inplace upgrade. When it checks for compatibility, I get a message stating I need to uninstall KAV first, as well as CCC(obvious one there).
Thing is, I havent had Kaspersky on here in MONTHS, and can find any trace of it in the system. You may not remember, but I had to do a clean Vista install a few months back due to a corrupted KAV by way of ugly bug in system. I'm using avast now, and I did have it disabled, but not uninstalled.
Any thoughts ?

Hello Joey,

I would recommend a clean or custom install instead for the best results of installing Windows 7. This way you will have a fresh install without having to worry about any issues of upgrading from the previous OS.

If you really wanted to do a in-place upgrade, then you might search the registry for any "Kaspersky" entries and delete them as found. Afterwards, see if it still shows up in the report.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Sound advice. I think I'll just do a quick backup of files, and start with a fresh system again.
Thanks

Clean install of 7 went very smooth, as well as activation. Although, I have NO sound now. IDT will not install. But I did find a thread on rewriting the .ini files. Sounds like a real pain there. I'm sure with enough research I'll find a driver/patch.
Thanks again for the cliffs notes

Well, if nothing else your computer or motherboard manufacturer's website may have drivers available that will work with it.

IDT audio driver issue solved

The culprit was right under my nose the entire time.
I you installed Windows 7 and can't get your audio driver to work, check your bios settings after driver is installed.
Under integrated audio, there are three settings to choose from. (In Dell BIOS,at least) OFF - AUTO - ON
Make sure it is set to "AUTO", not "ON".
"ON" only allows for system audio to be used.
"AUTO" allows ADD-In audio device as well.
Save your settings, and reboot.
Vioa! The familiar Windows startup chime is heard.
Hope this helps someone.
