Windows 7 RC officially released ..

Psssh.

Downloading my 2nd copy from my MSDN right now to slap on my HTPC.

Going 32-bit as x64 causes some issues with a couple of codecs :)

Downloads are sort of slow at the moment though :(
 
Servers are getting slammed, that is for sure.
 
getting 1.36meg sec on the 32bit d/l :) - better for htpc, x64 codecs are a bitch :D - going to grab x64 for this box though :)
 
true.. but u can always use 32 bit codecs and a 32 bit media player :]
 
I am getting the 64 bit version now. WOot!

yes but the WMC is 64 bit so thats not to good - 32bit is much easier, and 64bit is over kill for htpc :D
 
Is this true..

If you've already taken the plunge with the Windows 7 Beta, chances are you don't really want to set everything up all over again when you install Windows 7 RC. Unfortunately for you, Microsoft recommends a fresh install over an upgrade, and in fact, if you want to upgrade rather than install from scratch, you'll need to perform a simple hack, as described in this post from Life Rocks 2.0 covering how to upgrade from Windows 7 Beta to the Windows 7 RC. Likewise, you'll have to perform an in-kind upgrade, meaning you can't go from 32-bit Vista to a 64-bit Windows 7 install without doing a clean install.


I have to do a little hack?
 
you never upgrade a windows os. Always do a clean install. I rather enjoy installing os's for some reason, so I look forward to it ..
 
bman.. i installed 7100 over 7077 and no problems at all..

but with any older betas u'll have to do that

Darn, I have 7068 installed I believe, well if I get my computer working again that is..

I was not asking for opioion, and frankly I used to like to do clean installs too, now I enjoy how I have mine setup and don't want to start over.
 
Got my movies working correctly in MC :D

For some reason, some will show up correctly in MCE but not in Media Player :(

Oh well.
 
does win7 freeze for people at times, does it randomly, could be installing something, or using a program
 
beta did it - rc is doing it, might go back to vista sp2 :)
 
has anyone had any issues of watching movies over the network. having media player freeze. or just crash?

wifi network. only 7 does it. vista, xp and OSX dont..

any ideas?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
