    Windows 7 Beta

    I have no issue really with either. I use Vista a lot, since XP has been invaded with work security impediments. But I do believe that Microsoft should give everyone who bought Vista Windows 7 as a trade. not charge them another $150 to $250 for it.. btw I get them all Free under my Companies MSDN so I don't pay for the upgrades I know in the numbering from the Kernel the numbers work out (Just Like Windows mobile 6.1 when you do a version check says it was WM 5.2.19199) .. the problem is that Windows 7 is not the 7th OS they have released and Charged for.

    Windows 7 Beta

    The sad part is that its not the ultimate version..That is a marketing trick.. its missing the best parts.. no hyper-V (a built at the Kernel level Hyper-V is the part that MS was bragging about, at there side conferences they have every month in Redmond. oh it has media center.. media center, its the same as the Vista version. what is so ultimate about this version?? maybe home ultimate?? Plus Too many versions confuse people.. Look at Linux for an example of that. They should have a home and a Professional version.. That is it.. and I Think that is too much. This is my thought.. this is Vista with all the service packs already in it.. Call it beta and everyone goes, well this is better than vista and its just beta.. Guess what it is Vista.. They just changed the name and changed a few graphics.. added fixes But in the end its still Vista.. but MS knows Vista is a dammaged Name. That is why they are rebranding.. so when Windows 7 (back to numbers ?? in what universe is this the 7th os they have released.. ) is released and all the people go buy it, Microsoft marketing will be laughing. because they made you pay for the fixes they would have rolled into Vista. Man I wish I had their marketing people.. to get people to pay for what they all ready paid for, and like it... Brilliant..
  6. ok, Windows is really getting on my nerves.. I don't like it in the first place.. but have to know about all version for work.. I have not been able to install any software.. it keeps saying that I have to be admin.. I look at my account and it say admin.. also updates are failing to install. This is from my MSDN subscription so I did get it from "good" download I tried add and remove programs, guess what no add programs option.. What I would not give for a simple apt or emerge right now.. any help is welcome. maybe after something can be installed I'll take back what I said.... well lets not go that far.. the error : Openoffice does not have permissions to access C: EDIT_____________ ok after a reboot and I can now install software with no errors.. wt**** I know Beta.. I would not be upset but the version I was using a month ago had Hyper-V and did not have this issues.. ... did they release a old version for beta..

    Windows 7 Install Software

    it turns out that windows was trying to install a sound driver (I did not ask it to and sound was working...) I noticed this after watching the logs.. I turned off auto-update and now it is installing software is easy.. no warning that it was doing something.. I did not have these issues with VISTA, The only issues I had with vista is it keep telling me my hd was bad, but that turned out to be because when Linux would mount the drive, Windows on its boot would assume the drive was compromised. As both Smart, win XP and Linux could not find any issues with the drive I have to say I am not impressed, sorry. This is a True Beta so I will not judge the final with this build Thanks for the help here is what I would like to see MS do <rant> 1) be able to install to a USB drive... Ever Other OS in the World (including OSX) I have been able to install to a USB connected Drive.. I use laptops.. I use USB drives to add storage. I do not want to go and buy Esata just to install an OS 2) Keep hyper-V as a normal part of the OS.. its way too useful, imagine you can run all those non Vista capable software... 3) kill the registry (sorry just had to hand edit 200 keys..... ) 4) include some real software with the OS.. this thing takes more room than Ubuntu and has no usable software on it yet.. you still need to install a office suite for most people. 5) better support for mutiboot. come on MS its the year 2009 you should realize that you are not the only OS out there. </rant> again thanks for the help

    Windows 7 Beta

    I am installing it in Virtual Box for testing.. I have a new laptop coming in for work so it will probably go on it.. I am disappointed they removed Hyper-V from the beta build. I have been going to demos at MS headquarters in Redmond on windows 7 and Hyper-V was sits best feature. they showed using the Hyper-V to natively boot virtual drives as if they were the primary install.

    Which Do You Think Is The Best For Me?

    Urge to kill... rising. I can't remember exactly when it was that I realized that I hated everything about Ubuntu that wasn't Debian. The earth tones, the wallpapers, the name, the code names -- my God, the code names. Edit: And I had the same problem with the NTFS partitions on my external HDD. I don't with Fedora. I'll have to look into that. I'm running Windows 7 under KVM; I wonder if Hyper-V supports recursive virtualization.... Edit: No mention of Hyper-V anywhere I looked. According to My Microsofty neighbor hyper-v be a part of the Ultimate version (pro and Ultimate if they follow the vista route) shame.. that was the best part.. back to server 2008.. at least its in the enterprise version there. its one time a MSDN works out.. when all the new stuff is released.

    I can say I like in the latest patch the way wall papers are split across both screens. So it looks like one big picture insted of the same picture twice.. I have dual 24" monitors at work, , and I run my Work Windows partition in a VM,

    Which Do You Think Is The Best For Me?

    I went to a Demo That Microsoft and Citrix were holding (Living 25 miles from Redmond gets me invited to all the fun, I do one a month to get a free lunch They said that Hyper-V was built into Windows 7 and showed a way to boot virtual partitions natively, but I have a feeling the beta did not have the enterprise parts..

    Which Do You Think Is The Best For Me?

    Hey hitest, After a bit of a hiatus from linux I decided to throw ubuntu on my notebook and was more than irritated with its insistence on setting its install on the windows partition when I had a partition allocated for its use...I didn't want to manually create all partitions it needs but at least thought I could tell it to use any partition on the drive...besides that annoyance and the prism driver for my wireless not working like it did in previous releases I'd still probably recommend it as user-friendly that was to make things simple.. you know most windows user have now clue about partitions.. so they made it simple.. did you not like it when it was not so simple?? I think on my next laptop I am going back to Gentoo.. my head misses the wall..

    Which Do You Think Is The Best For Me?

    OK, Now I've found a problem. It refuses to mount either of my External hard drives. It gives me some weirdo message like the log file says improper shutdown and won't allow the mounting of either drive. This is NTFS issue... Ubuntu was trying to protect your data encase you try to use it in windows again. Ubuntu Does irritate me to no end, but it syncs better with my Windows Mobile 6.1 phone that Vista does.. Did the beta of windows 7 come with hyper-V? That is the only interesting part for me in the new windows. its still will not let me install to a USB device though.. Crappy windows..

    Dual Moniter Vista Flickering

    that is why it took so long ot diagnose the issue, we thought the same thing. I was Working With Dimensional Communications who did all of Microsoft's AV testing at the MS headquarters for VISTA. It was one of their engineers who alerted us that this was an issue. We were doing zero "protected Content" just the desktop.. VGA is not disabled, its using it with DVI, I can make it work at 1280x1024 but once I go higher I run into the same problem, if I havea DVI connections.. There is a chance I am wrong as always, but flashing screens are one of two issues, HDCP or a freq mismatch. and a direct connections to the monitor should not ever have a Freq mismatch. So there is the chance the poster has a bad monitor, or bad cable. but since both monitors are flashing , I would say HDCP.

    Dual Moniter Vista Flickering

    not anymore, I just ran into with an install, where the sharp monitors were not HDCP compliment, and the Other was. when using only one monitor the screens were fine. when using two they would flicker. Since this is a Laptop the first monitor (the Laptop one ) is compliant and so Vista is running in Protected mode. so when the other come up VGA it will at a high resolution HDCP kicks in. Its like how Macrovision used to scrambel colors, but it causes you monitors to flick on and off. we fixed it by finding nvideo cards with the same chip but 6 onths oler, as they did not have the HDCP chip on the board. The monitors worked 100%. for the newer systems that will not take AGP we used a Gefen DVI Detective to capture the HDCP information from a compliant monitor and place it on the second. VGA is not HDCP compliant. Trust me this sounds dumb to anyone who has don computers for any given time. and it took us and 3 professional AV engineers to diagnose this correctly. the only other thing it would be is a bad frequency, but you never see that with VGA, the signal is there or its not, its analog. but with DVI over a long stretch this is common. this is why I asked if it was DVI or not. If the monitor has DVI you can use but your laptop does not, iogear make a USB DVI adapter This works well at 1600x1200 just a note we are also having this problem with Workstations and KVM's. the DVI inspector is the only way we have fixed that.

    Dual Moniter Vista Flickering

    then its a HDCP issue. you are limited by the resolution size you can send analog now. and both screens add up to greater than your size. if you can use DVI and your monitor is HDCP compliant it will work.. Don't you like being treated like a thief.

    Dual Moniter Vista Flickering

    is this DVI or VGA connection? Sounds like HDCP issue but I can't see a reason why.
