Okay, here it goes, lots of trouble, gfx card not being recognised is the final problem. Was on the windows 7 32bit RC for about 6-7months. Finally bought the 64bit professional disc, and did a clean install (As upgrade wasn't allowed from the rc). This went fine. Downloaded all the windows updates and drivers for my laptop, and restarted, as you do. On the load up screen, laptop freezes at the windows logo on the black background. Auto-reboots and there's an error, it needs to be restored. It does the auto restore and eventually takes me back to my desktop, as if it had just been installed again. Thinking this was a bug, i try again. I download the updates, but not drivers, and restart. All goes well. I download the drivers, restart, and the same thing happens, but with one difference. The auto restore feature fails. So it wont boot up, it wont auto restore using windows, and when i try to use the built in manufacturers restore "BOOTMGR" is missing, so I can't do that either. Eventually after about 2 hours it lets me clean install Windows 7 again. Everything goes perfect on the install. I do the windows updates, then run dxdiag to see if there's an issue with my gfx card, and low and behold, it's not recognised. So my gfx card is'nt being recognised, I can't download the drivers as that causes no end of trouble, and I can't run any games etc... because it think's i have no gfx card...HELP! I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64bit. gfx card : NVidia 9200m GS I'll post any more info if you need it.
