    Worked out how to make a single DVD for all version ( 32 and 64 still on seprate media)

    Open the ISO
    Delete the ei.cfg under the sources folder
    or
    Edit the ei.cfg and change the version under EditionID

    Ultimate
    Professional
    HomePremium
    HomeBasic
    Starter

    Save ISO and burn
    Done

    Saves you from downloading all the media.

    Somone posted a link for that the other day - I tried it and it does not work for me with the RC or the RTM.

    dude, your pst file is probably corrupted, close outlook then try running the scanpst utility manually (located in the office directory), and if that fails to run saying it keeps getting interrupted and you need to run a chkdsk then start up outlook, create a new pst data file and copy your existing folders (mail, contacts, calendar, sent items etc) across to it one at a time, ignoring any errors that appear, then eventually just delete the old pst and set the new one as your default where mail should be delivered to...

    Small tip;

    If your installer is unbelievably slow (like minutes between screens), especially when installing from USB, go into the bios and set your floppy drive / legacy floppy emulation to 'disabled'.

    Doesn't make much sense but I've seen this work for both vista and windows 7 on a variety of hardware.

    I can confirm the latest version works. Not at home so not sure what version it is.

    I've used the 'contributor' 0.28 version as well as the free 0.25 version on Windows 7 X64 7000 and on 7264 build with no problems.... Haven't tried the current 'contributor' version 0.31.1

    I still much prefer sabnzbd through.... you should give it a shot. The autofolder creation and organising features are pretty nice, and it's light as.

    Has/Is anyone having issues with windows installer/msi in that it just locks up? any subsequent tasks just don't load, and when you go to the process view in taskmanager, theres a bazzillion items loaded but none work.. once you kill the msiexec it all goes back to normal?

    its getting very tiresome..

    Edit: Seems like i'm not the only one...

    So with the release of Win 7 RTM on MSDN, if I click the get key button next to the download, are there any surcharges on my account for actually getting these keys?

    Also, how many systems can I activate on a single key?

    Nope no charges apart from what you initially paid for ur subscription. You can activate one install with one key but you get up to 10 keys per version of Win7.

    If it gives you a key then it's already part of your MSDN subscription, if it doesn't give you a key then it's not. They don't do surcharges.

    As for how many. It's usually 1 x "production" copy because MSDN is normally a per-developer thing unless you have some sort of corporate/education access, and then 5 or 10 activations meant for just testing (I don't know if they still give you those though).

    Just finished setting up my MSDN copy on the Laptop tonight actually.

    Very smooth and hasslefree upgrade from the RC. :thumbup:

    Why is it nitpicking to want to set up windows they way you want it?

    Yes, I'm serious, I think the sounds are crappy. But it's easily changed.

    Overall I'm loving 7, today I've fully migrated to it moving away from 8 odd years of Windows XP.
