Since my last post in this thread I have installed the retail vers of Win 7 Home Premium and while the games:
COD 2 (Win XP compatibility mode)
COD Mod War 2
all run ok, when I installed "The Elder Scrolls Oblivion" it would not run except in XP mode SP2 but...
I also have had this problem with "Floppy" drives (3 from different manufacturers, to be exact) and do not believe it to be a HARDWARE problem but a Win 7 issue.
I also have a PC with Win XP Pro 64 bit and have no problems formatting or reading floppy discs, and both my PCs are AMD chipset...

I bought the retail version of WIn 7 Premium and performed a clean install after reformatting and I am one happy bunny.

Back again to the same old problem (USB) . I am again having problems with USB attachments even though I am running with the latest SB 700 Vista drivers. The most frustrating one is the inability to use my \USB mouse. Fortunately I have a OC mouse and my board supports it but that is...
I have the same configuration as you HDD wise and I am running WIn 7 RC on 1 HDD and Win XP 64 on a second. As long as you have Win XP already installed on 1 drive, when you install 7 on the other it will set up the dual boot scenario and you will be able to select either to boot from...
As I have already asked in another thread, what Build of Win 7 are you using? Some of the builds released into the wild have additional malware hidden within that cause similiar issues to thois you are experiencing. I found this out for myself when I downloaded Build 7077 64 Bit and...

Win 7 Premium Pre-Order
I have pre-ordered Win 7 Premium and will be installing the 64 bit vers. I ordered from Play.com (Ã‚Â£49.99)
