    Hi all

    I have been having issues with Windows 7. I was able to install it without any problems. I was also able to install all the drivers from the CD using compatibility mode. But I am having problems with Windows7.

    The most frequent problem is that the loss of hard drive activity regardless of how long i've been on the computer. I could still click start and minimize application but when I try to open any program or shutdown windows, it would just hang. No bluescreen, keyboard still responds and i can see that i can still enable/disable capslock, etc..but not launch any other program.

    Another one is that when I try to login, it would freeze on windows login. I could see that there are still hard drive activity. I waited hours trying to see if something will eventually works, but it didnt.

    For the past 2 weeks, I have reinstalled windows 7 more than 10 times and im still having the same issues.

    Of note, I install the drivers first then install windows update. I've also tried installing updates and then selective drivers from the CD and still have the same problems. Now Im running window 7 without and updates and not driver installation but Im still having occasional freezing.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Big mistake. My update also ended up being highly problematic to the degree that I had to do a clean install. After a clean install, the system is as steady as a rock. Forget the upgrade, just do a clean (custom) installation. It will take care of all the issues that you have now.

    In any case, for both beta and RC, Microsoft strongly recommended clean installs. I suggest that you may want to go down this way.
