Awww yeaahhhhhhhhhh.
Ahem.
This is good news.
I hope it fixes my blue screens. I can't seem to play games for more than short periods of time at this point.

Yeah I can't say Windows 7 is fond of my system and/or overclock. Over the past month I've BSOD more times in Windows 7 than during the years I've been using WinXP.

I killed the overclock to be sure that wasn't it -- no change.
Same thing here. Sad times.

Win 7 beta's won't work for me because Win 7 confused my MBR. Now my file system always corrupts when using it. Which sucks, because I was anxious to switch over.

Going to wait for official release I think.

Been using win 7 on my laptop for about a month now. No BSOD or crashes to report. I love it.

From what time I spent on with it, if you have a non standard MBR (like for example, you have a boot loader and are running multiple operating systems *edit: on multiple hard drives) Windows 7 will not work.

I also don't like how say you want to install Windows 7 onto your third hard disk, it'll put the boot loader onto what hard drive is set to your 'C:' drive at the time of installation (instead of onto the hard disk it is being installed onto, like all previous versions of Windows).

Have 7 on a dual boot with Ubuntu and no real problems with it. New laptop and I had to get rid of vista cause it just sucks. 7 loads faster and seems to just run smoother.

The windows 7 beta/rc has been working fine for me, even with overclock. Although I don't have super new hardware.

I'm running my 1.86GHz E6320 at 2.5GHz with no BSODs on RC1 and playing FC2 no problems so far. However, I did notice that W7 won't let me boot properly without the install disk in the drive and the HD's installed in the exact right sequence, if I remove my second HD it refuses to recognize that the W7 drive is a bootable drive .

I'd guess that your second HD isn't bootable at all, actually -- thats the thing, Win 7 doesn't make the drive you install it to bootable, it'll put the boot loader on whichever disks it recognizes as the first hard drive.

I don't see what the use of that system is, and I hope it is just one of the things they'll change for the RC. Currently if you have say 4 HDs, and want to install Win 7 on one particular drive, you have to disconnect the other three drives and only run the one HD that you want to install to when you first install.
