I installed build 7057 both x86 and x64 on VirtualPC and VMware with about 45 mins on clean installation and very fast boot time on virtual machines. But I tried installed the x64 on a spare physical hard drive, the clean installation took about 3 hours and it took very long time to boot at 5 mins compared to less than a min with Vista x64. Look like it has very buggy windows setup installation, if all bugs were fixed then it would had it clean installed in 30 mins and boot less than a min.

Other than that, Windows 7 worked fine at full performance with Aero enabled when it reached desktop.
