McAfee FTL. Get something better like Avira. Works perfect with W7.

CA Security Suite doesn't recognize the OS.

Start menu bites. At least give the option of making that semi transparent.

Just righ-click -> properties -> compatibility -> Windows Vista [x] -> run as admin [x]

Works fine for me!

Default Re: Download win7 straight from MS

When I installed W7 it was on a seperate HD, now when I boot though it has to be from the HD with XP on it and I am given the choice of "Windows 7 or Earlier version of windows" on a black screen - just like with Vista.

I wonder why that happened, I wanted to keep W7 completely separate but did not turn out that way. Hmmmm.

There are also a few (what seems like) new folders on the XP HD. Highlighted below:


I wonder if moving/deleting them would stop that "choose" screen from appearing on boots? The .dll file might've been there all the time.

Can I install this over XP or will have it need to reformat my HDD first?

WinXP Pro 32bit to Win7 64bit?

You can only do an upgrade install from Vista. It will not work with XP, but you can do a clean install.

plus you can't upgrade from 32bit to 64bit, fresh install is necessary
