Windows 7 Installation Experience

Now I'm running Windows 7 on several systems. I'm now running the Beta version on my major system.

The installation experience and stability depends on the hardware. Of course, that's a usual experience with a Beta version.

The best experience is with my newest tablet PC: Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook T5010.
Installation (upgrade from Windows Vista) was smooth, every device is available, so far no major issues. I could also run Microsoft OneCare after telling the application it's running on Windows Vista.

With a slightly older model (Lifebook T4220) installation (upgrade as well) was hanging near the end of the installation during a check of the graphics card. After turning off and on again the installation completed without problems. Checking the Windows Experience Index on this system either results in a hang or a blue screen. However, for normal daily operations this system doesn't have issues.

On a old notebook (HP Compaq NX7000) a new installation of Windows 7 was running fine. For the graphics card just a standard driver was installed during installation. With an update the driver for ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 was installed, and as a result the screen on the display flickered. The display on an external monitor is ok. Rollback the driver. The standard driver just has a Windows Experience Index of 1, but the system is fine for non-display related tasks. I checked the HP Website for drivers, but only Windows XP drivers are offered for this notebook. I used this system for Windows Server 2003 which was fine. It's great that Windows 7 is running on this system as well!

At times it also depends on your system or laptop which does not support or if it does your specs are low thats why it runs windows slow.

This could be one of the reason.
