Windows XP Sandy Bridge Install - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Windows 7 does not require any additional drivers for initial installation. Once Win 7 finishes you will need the motherboard driver cd.

You can get Win 7 64 bit home premium OEM for about $112.

I was given to understand that you cannot upgrade from XP to Win7 directly (you can from Vista though)

It can boot from that drive, but once it gets into the setup process it losses the ability to see it's self! (How crazy is that!) So once I plugged the USB drive into the normal USB 2.0 ports it could then install onto the hard drive as normal.

Moral of the Story: If your going to use the USB route for installing Windows 7, plug the USB Thumb drive into the USB 2.0 ports on the motherboard or you WILL have issues.

[Edit1]But I don't wanna! As I type this right now (On my Cr-48) my Windows 7 install is working on 78 updates ... Seventy Eight! I really don't want to have to go thought any extra windows updates then I have too. It's too annoying.

[Edit2]I just looked at your sig, and it says your monitor is a ASUS 23'' 1080p HDMI, how do you like it, because I'm looking for something in that range.

[Edit3]So, after the SEVENTY EIGHT updates installed, Windows now does not boot. *Gives the unimpressed face.* Try to 'recover' now. But that looks like I'm not going to be getting very far with it as I'm sitting at the recover console right now ... but after 10 minutes still nothing has happend ... Oh, wait, now it decides that it want's to come out and play. (Searching for problems...)

[Edit4]Wow, Windows 7 managed to corrupt it's self in the update process. Going to leave this now, it's "Attempting Repairs... Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete. Well, that's the rest of my night shot. Going to sleep now.

lets see if this will really help you out...
first get a SATA CD/DVD Burner $30 with shipping and on sale http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106335

next if you must have Win7 Pro full, here it is $266 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116717

Now here is the difference between full and OEM vs, Full has both 32bit and 64bit, it also has different support from Microsoft directly, other than that there is absolutely no difference between OEM and full. Since your running Sandy now and your using 4GB of RAM you will need to use 64b to use all your 4GB of RAM, otherwise your still going to be limited to 3GB like with XP Pro.
Win 7 Pro OEM $139 so you tell me is another $130 worth Full??? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116992

finally as it has been already mentioned Win 7 SP1 is alrdy out. I like you had a massive upgrade, came from a AMD 64 3200+. I ran XP Pro 64bit on my old system tho.

Yes, because you can't transfer a retail license to another computer once your done with that computer. When I build another computer, I don't want to have to buy Windows 7 again, so with the full retail license I can uninstall it from my 'old' computer and install it on my new computer. Whereas the OEM version is coupled to the motherboard once you activate Windows.

You can choose what updates to install, you dont need to do all of them...

I don't understand. Windows Update runs in the background, how is that annoying? Yes, maybe you have to restart here and there when major updates have been installed but seriously...

Running a deprecated 10+ year-old OS on a SB build because Windows Updates are 'annoying' makes no sense. Guess how you update XP? Windows Updates!!!
At long last...

You have not been paying attention. I've abandoned the Windows XP install, and went for Windows 7. Having done so I've had to reinstall it twice now because it keeps on Borking (Unable To Boot) it's self after installing the Windows Updates.

90 days plus you can re arm it 3 times for another 90 days which gives you a 180 days to scrape something together for the key. Thats almost six months.
