Windows 7 took almost 4 hours to upgrade my Vista Laptop
So I upgraded our Windows Vista HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop last night with Windows 7 Home Premium and the bloody upgrade took almost 4 hours. But it was worth it in the end. Windows 7 is awesome, flat out and I think for the first time in 2 years we are seeing the true capabilities of our laptop. If only it came with Windows 7 back when we bought it!
I had to remove only one application, which wouldn’t work and that was my anti-virus. So overall I am very impressed. Hopefully the anti-virus can be resolved.
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack, which allows 3 machines to be installed. I plan to also install Windows 7 on my iMac. It was such a fast machine with Windows XP, so I can’t wait to see Windows 7 on it!
It will set you back £129.99 for the 3 licence pack at Amazon.co.uk. Fortunately I had a £30 gift voucher from my birthday (thanks Mom & Rob), so I was looking at £90 for the 3 licences. Definitely money well spent. I also picked up a 3 pack licence of Office Home and Student 2007 even though there are no students in the house! That was £55 at Amazon. – Bargain.
Look out for future comments on Windows 7.
