Windows 7 install
Let's just say that my experience was less then thrilling. The first problem I ran into was my DVD burner was not burning DVDs. The problem with that is the download comes in a ISO file format, and the only device capable of reading an ISO format is the DVD player. I was able to download a free copy of Clone Drive which created virtual DVD drives. Now I am able to install Windows 7. I clicked on the Setup.exe file at about 4:15 pm on 5/16/2009, when I went to bed at 10:30pm, the same day, the installation was still not complete. I am going to say it is because I only have 1GB of RAM which is the minimum. During the install I was informed there were two incompatible pieces of software on my system, interestingly enough, both were Microsoft products - Lifecam and SQL Server 20005.
