Need specifics guys not just generalizations. What drivers don't work (Nvida or Ati? what version?), what games don't work?

Windows 7 worked running in VMware Server 2.0 with Vista Business as the host.

Edit: I know skierkid already mentioned it, but I just wanted to specify that Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.12.36 does work.

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried this with an Atom? Just curious how resource-hungry it is. A build based on the D945GCLF2 is able to run Windows Vista Ultimate w/Aero quite well. I think I'll try it on my Atom build once the new northbridge heatsink arrives. :P

Yes my EEE PC is Atom based, and its very very fast. But I do have a SSD in there, but it will have a 7200RPM Sata drive come tonight, so I'll let you know if it is still as snappy

Warcraft 3 (Reign of Chaos, The Frozen Throne)
WC3 Banlist

Crayon Physics Deluxe

All of these are working perfectly on my machine.

I'm liking it so much (mainly the taskbar and how clean it allows me to keep my desktop) that I think I'm going to go ahead and install it on the bigger of my hard drives. (320gb Vista install right now as my "mission critical" hard drive and I'm running Windows 7 right now on a 60gb hard drive. I'm on a laptop and switching out hard drives for testing, but i've been spending way more time in windows 7 and nothing I do is actually critical to any missions)

WinXP Pro

All wrapped up in a Lian-Li PC-G70a

Microsoft released a work around for those users that run into MSI-based installer issues. For example Photoshop CS4 or ebay TurboLister would error during the installer package intialization.

Solve a problem with Windows 7 beta

An issue with the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) client in Windows 7 beta is causing Explorer and some MSI-based installers to stop working properly.

To solve this problem, follow these steps:

    Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Accessories.

    Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. In the User Account Control window, verify that Program name is Windows Command Processor, and then click Yes.

    In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type or paste the following text at the prompt: reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions /va /f

    Press Enter to install the solution.

    If The operation completed successfully displays, close the Administrator: Command Prompt window to complete this procedure. If "ERROR: Access is denied" displays, repeat this procedure from the top, making sure you clicked Run as administrator in step two.


So far after that workaround was released I've not had any problems I couldn't devise a work around for. Xonar users will need to manually run the secondary setup.exe file located within the driver package (don't run the root setup.exe file). Otherwise my Xonar and all sound options work fine on Windows 7 x64 as they did on Windows Vista SP1 x64.

GPU Folding@home works just fine, but the SMP CPU Folding@home program doesn't work properly, even after executing with higher admin privileges. FahMon requires higher admin privileges to write a bunch of log & cache files.

Yes it does, there is a workaround at the F@H forums, I can't find it at the moment, but I am folding SMP with windows 7 no problem
