    I downloaded it, I installed it. No display on bootup. Downloaded and installed again. Nothing. Tried again with erasing everything on my hard drive (didn't back up, I was wasting enough time already). After a whole 12 hour day (i'm 16, summer break) at home, I still did not have windows 7 working.

    THe next day it still wouldn't work. I had searched everything on the web (low res boot, etc). I then tried an old crt monitor. Holy crap. It worked. Then I tried my vga connection on my lcd. Success. Now the internet wouldn't work. Dammit.

    I tried installing drivers. Wouldn't install. Then I tried switching out wireless cards with an old one. Unsigned drivers won't install (WHAT THE F*CK WERE YOU THINKING MICROSOFT!?!?!?!?).

    Tried the unsigned driver remover program (google it), and then the device wouldn't boot (code 10).

    I said screw it. I took a wireless card from another computer, and replaced my old card with this one. It was a linksys. If a LINKSYS wireless card wouldn't install on windows, I think that microsoft should go jump off a bridge. It wouldn't. Unsigned drivers. (Microsoft needs to make unsigned drivers work.) Tried the unsigned driver remover thingamabob. SUCCESSSSSSSSSS.


    No more betas for me after this........

    build 7100 (x64)

    burned it using freeware iso thingy......

    Anywho, it's pretty fast, crysis FLIES compared to my old vista (especially cuz I couldn't install 185.85 or above nvidia drivers), but this is great.

    That's what a new OS should be. Even if vista looked exactly like xp, but it was significantly faster, I think people would have complained less.

    Had I not been so stupid all I would have had to do is use the vga adaptor, and switch out wireless cards.

    best windows yet. Plus, all these half-off deals are great.
