Windows7 Basic Installation



The following is a basic overview on the new Windows7 Installation Process

1. This is just a general overview of the Installation Process for the upcoming Windows 7 Operating system
2. So far I have installed both the 32 and 64 bit versions on two different computers
3. The installation was extremely fast and easy on each
4. For example, from start to finish, on the 64-bit version was just under 20 minutes !!
5. Booting from the DVD and the very beginning took about 2 minutes. The only prompts are the Language, Time and Currency Format, and the Keyboard
6. Expanding the files took about 8 minutes
7. Reboot and complete the installation took about 6 minutes
8. First Use with the User and Computer Name etc. took about another 3 minutes to the desktop
9. Then there is the boot time. On the same computer, compared to Vista, Windows7 boots approximately 30% faster.
10. Other things with the basic Windows 7 Installation:
11. The Sidebar Gadgets are not installed automatically.
12 The memory usage is vastly improved. For example, on the 32-bit system, it was under 700 megs.
13. A lot of unnecessary services are not started as with Vista
14. A complete install, with the following applications installed and configured, along with approximately 300 megs of updates took only two hoursAcoustica CD/DVD Label Maker
