So i got so sick of vista premium screwing up my beautiful lappy, i decided to go and buy a 320 gb wd blue laptop hdd and grabbed a download of windows 7,now alot of people were freaking out saying "oh son, its easy on a desktop, however a laptops a different story, there are many specific drivers you need to get from your laptops brand site, and many of these are not available, also win 7 is in beta (r c) stage, so the vista drivers will probably not work..."
well im here to say its CAN BE DONE!as a matter of fact thats what i have been doing all evening instead of joining fellow gamers online.
my rig is an hp dv5 entertainment pc(1005tx)
centrino2 core2duo @2.26mhz
nvidea geforce 9600M GT 512 dedicated
2X 320 gb wd scorpio(blue@5400rpm, black@7200rpm)
3.00gb samsung 800mhz ram

dunno if anyone besides goatkiller and crazy has played around with win7 but it seems a much, much better system over win vista even tho its basically overhauled vista programming...seems they finally got something right!be aware,if you install the r.c win 7, you will need to completely uninstall it and re-install(if you buy it) windows 7 when it comes out.almost all the hp drivers which i got from the hp site,work!these include a multitude of peripherals and updates, the only one not seeming to work for me is the volume control and quickplay hotkeys just below the screen,thats ok,the hp came with its own mini remote control anyway!win 7 is meant to be backward compatible with almost anything from vista as far as i can tell, hence me able to use MOST vista component drivers. took a screenshot of the finished product, graphics card was a way higher score with vista, so its possible the drver isnt sorted or the hp site hasent yet uploaded the latest hp nvidia driver.
now time to install some 2142 and...........

yep i downloaded windows 7 the other day and have installed it on my old rig, so far I am impressed how well and fast it runs on this old system
P4 3.2ghz socket 478
2GB DDR 400 RAM

It will take me a while to get used to the layout and different functions, I have never used Vista before and from the sounds of it thats a good thing.
So far no driver issues on this old machine and I will wait a couple of months for Win 7 to settle into the market before getting it, that way there should be better driver support.

I will prob end up buying Win 7 Pro oem.
and throw that onto my new machine.

just a quick update,all buttons/hotkeys/quick keys work, i didnt think and only installed the LATEST update files, i went back to the hp site and found earlier versions and tried them and they worked, so all the custom volume,quickplay and mute buttons etc. now work correctly,it also hepled the quickplay button to work when i ACTUALLY INSTALLED THE QUICKPLAY SOFTWARE!LOL.this system runs beaut now, just wish i didnt have to re-install everything when the final version gets out,so as for this ill just install a few games and not bother with steam etc.

found one problem which will be sorted out on the release... no punkbuster support for windows 7, PB said they wont support beta os so will have to wait for final release to get BF2142 running fine.

i really dont know why microsoft just doesnt run with a single 64bit option os from now on get the max out of performance and manufactures just have to concentrate on the 64bit drivers/software
