OK, Amazon is shipping my UPGRADE next Monday and I want to be prepared. This is Vista Home Prem. 64 bit.
I'm one a NETWORK with 3 other PC's, XP Pro, XP Home, and XP Media Center editions, all connected and sharing files and folders with each other.
Of course I'm planning on doing an 'in-place' install over my existing system to save what I've got installed. I'm using Norton Ghost 12 and have back-ups 'in case' of course.
This is a fairly NEW DELL XPS 435 T (as of May) and passes the Win7 test with all thinks 'OK'.
I just assume I can put in the CD and do an install and it will all work OK after that, but I'd like to know if anyone else has had problems doing so with the pre-releases or have an RTM copy and hit problems I might have to be aware of?
I did have some problems with some programs in Vista, most notably from Canon and its ZoomBrowser. I had to mess around with WMI and disable some checks and then that app started OK. I see Canon now says some of its camera's are NOT Vista capable? Anything else like this anyone is aware of?
Will ALL the customization I've done to Vista be carried over or will Win7 reset some?
Questions, Questions, Questions, I just 'worry' all will not go well and want to be prepared. I'd HATE to have to do a NEW install, but I'm considering it. Dual boot setup, move data and re-install apps, and delete Vista, sigh, I do NOT want to do this unless it is the only way to go...
