Default 10v with Windows 7 RTM (final) - 08-27-2009, 01:07 PM

I installed Windows 7 RTM (retail version NOT release candidate) yesterday on my 10v with 1g ram and it seems quite on par with the speed I had with XP (but with more bells and whistles!) . So far im loving it!

Had to install webcam XP driver (W7 did not install driver for it) trackpad XP driver (tough trackpad is working out of the box but without scrolling) and Windows 7 function keys driver. Windows update suggested updating 3 drivers including network card and USB2.0. I must say that everything went very smooth. Best Windows installation I've seen.

Edit: Aero theme is ON

I haven't put RTM on mine yet, but if it's anything like RC, it should be very nice. I'm running RTM on my laptop though, and it's great! Only one minor annoyance with it not detecting the plugging in and removal of an external monitor.

Nataq/ How did you get the webcam working? I've tried mini 12 driver as well as XP one and although both installed fine when I fire up MSM or other application they don't see the webcam?

I'm running RTM on my mini, laptop and desktop. Love this OS. As far as webcam drivers, I used the ones from dell in the XP section and skype recognized my cam right away.

Windows7 RTM is available for download on MSDN and MSDNAA. You'll be able to buy it in stores late in October. 7's performance in most cases is pretty much on par with that of WindowsXP. It ran perfectly fine on my mini10v.

Are you running Win 7 with the 1gb or you upgrade to 2gb ram?
