Well the 32-bit build 7000 has been out for some time, but the 64-bit one has now appeared. You know where to find it ;)

oh reallie random? where would that be? :D

I would link it, but my guess is that it's against ToS to do so. So for those that don't know where to look, use google. I'm getting a good 200kB/s download speed, which for me and this particular protocol, is very good.

If it's a torrent site, go ahead and name it.

I'm getting it from The Pirate Bay, but I'm sure it is at others. 214 seeds 1211 leechers (as expected).

I was not overly impressed by build 6801. It wasn't any more responsive than Vista, and it had a couple of bugs that were quite noticeable. It didn't like me changing network settings, because when I clicked "OK" it would lock up until I ended the process. Fortunately the changes still stuck. Also, the "close" button in device manager properties for any device would flash like crazy when you moved the cursor over it :lol:

There aren't many bugs in the beta, performance beats xp in every area but two, graphics and hdd performance. I expect before launch it'll be beating xp in hdd perf. but graphics may be the lone lagger still, will have to wait and see. Personally if I have to give up 2-4 FPS for all the other speed boosts and features I'll just buy a better graphics card, big whoop.

I found XP slower than Vista in games. Negligibly, but still slower. For general responsiveness XP is still king between the two.

i did too. i noticed my games in vista respond better. overall the responsiveness, in my experience, vista is so much quicker than xp. i have the same hardware configuration when i was using xp sp3, and vista sp1 blows it away. guess it depends person to person eh.

Vista needs alot of services to be disabled before it boots close to XP SP3 times, but then it's not alot different. I still find XP is fully responsive after boot much quicker than Vista. Minutes quicker before services are disabled.

Downloaded and attempted to install 64-bit Beta 1 today-- got 3/4 of the way through setup, it told me that Windows could not be installed on this hardware, exited. No details given on what was incompatible. Had to restore XP from a Ghost backup. CPU is Athlon X2 5050e, motherboard is Biostar MCP6P M2+, video card is Galaxy KFA2 Geforce Nvida 7300LE 256MB.

Edited to add:

By 3/4 through setup, I mean that the installation started, it worked through to the bottom item on the list of installation tasks, and the installation progress bar on the bottom of the screen had reached around 3/4 of the way across the bottom of the screen-- maybe half an hour into the installation. After that point was where it said that it could not be set up on that hardware. Reboot, it shows a screen that "Windows is starting services" or something like that (may be a standard Vista message, I've never touched Vista before) and then gave a message that setup wasn't complete, and I needed to re-run setup. Rather than attempt the install again (and surely see the same error message) I Ghosted XP back on.

Piratebay, lol. Oldschool. News groups are faster by 1000%+

Piratebay is always free, not just for 30 days :kaola:

I pay $15 a month, but its well worth it :)

Which is best, upgrade from Vista Ultimate 64bit to Windows 7 64 bit or do a clean install of Windows 7?
January 10, 2009 1:49:29 AM

Always do clean installations :)

I have the Windows 7 ISO but can't get the Key. Keep getting an error when I try to download the key telling me to try back tomorrow, so I don't know if I should go ahead and instal now and try to get the key later or wait for the key. I have a ghost image of my vista from yesterday. any suggestions?
January 10, 2009 2:00:42 AM

The keys aren't available yet, their servers crapped out from too much load (supposedly).
January 10, 2009 2:01:45 AM

I'm installing NOW!!! GO!!!
January 10, 2009 3:05:20 AM

I read on a windows 7 tech blog (sorry forgot which one). They said Keys arent needed for a while. It installed fine for me. I hope it runs until the keys come out.

i installed 64bit, my first 64 bit, and i like it so far. IT looks just like vista, but it doesnt seem bogged down. It seems very quick.
January 10, 2009 3:10:57 AM

It looks like Vista? Are you sure you have build 7000? It doesn't really look that much like Vista to me. Check out the new customisable system tray and the control panel (I couldn't find mouse properties in there even :p ). It's similar but not that close.

You get 30 days with no key.

I have already ran into a problem trying to load the ATI Windows 7 Beta drivers for my HD3870 video card. After install it keeps saying "no drivers installed for the video card." Just thought you guys would like to know.
January 10, 2009 4:22:30 AM

Run in Vista compatibility mode and as administrator if you have UAC running.
January 10, 2009 4:41:00 AM

I have 2-3870s in xfire, i installed ccc 8.12 64bit with no problems on my win 7 beta. uninstall the drivers and try again.

I picked up 10-15 fps on COD5. I still needed a DX9 .dll. That brings up a question. DXIAG says it is running DX11. What gives.?

I agree. It is similar. I never used vista for any real time. My wife has it. Ive had xp 32 for years. The desktop is similar to vista. I have had no problem finding my way around control panel, device manager...all that hasnt changed much.

so far, i still like it. The 64 bit is a nice improvement for me personally. Now i can use all 4G of RAM and 1G of video RAM.

edit: mouse? find it in control panel > ease of access.
January 10, 2009 5:13:37 AM

Well, the classic control panel is fine, but the default one seems to have rearranged things and hidden them in new places. Why is it in easy of access when it's clearly a device or hardware?
January 10, 2009 12:54:40 PM

There are crap load of items in" control panel > all control panel items". There is another mouse item in there.

My system had a Windows Experience score of 7.9 on average, except the HD i used for this beta is a 5 year old sata. It scored a 2.9. lol. 7.9 is the highest. CPU 6.9, memory 5.9, graphics 7.9, 3d graphics 6.0.

i can understand my cpu being 6.9. It is a dual core, even tho it is at 3.8G. I guess my patriot 2.0v RAM DDR2 score lower because there is DDR3 out now. My 2 CF 3870s are a bit dated. Otherswise not a bad score. I need a better hard drive for my final build.

edit: 3dmark06 scored 16400. On win xp 32 it usually scores 17000.
I havent tried vantage yet.
