Thanks Microsoft !! Nice eye candy
Since I was using the 32-bit edition, it saves the c:\Program Files\Program Files (x86) and the same old useless windows.old folder.
I only have 7.63 GB left from my C: partition which is 25GB in size.
I realize these can be savely deleted and the addition of those last two updates, but those "so called minimum requirements" for hard drive space is a total joke.
Not one 3rd-party app has been installed.
I also found the minimum requirements to be pretty poorly constructed.. Hard Drive's are dirt cheap these days and abundant.. why don't they just state something like 100GB minimum and be done with it.. I mean really when you think about it.. someone who only has a 60GB hard drive.. when he installs Win 7 and applies all the updates and installs his regularly used apps.. he's gonna be left with 20Gb or less most likely.. throw that Windows.old foler in there and he's down another 8GB's or so.. So after all that he's lucky to have 10GB's of free space on his HDD and he'll end up with a poorly functioning OS due to the lack of HDD space..
I noticed both Vista and Win 7 don't work all that well when there's not much HDD space left.. So in my opinion Microsoft should be stepping up the minimum HDD space required in these specs..
Okay I just finished installing Windows 7 RC, it went fairly smooth. The big surprise was I used Windows Easy Transfer to save my settings, files, pictures, bookmarks to a USB drive.....and it worked beautifully, the majority of my settings and misc stuff is now all on the new RC instalation, saving me many hours of work and grief.
You can find the Windows Easy Transfer tool in All Programs>Accesories>System Tools> Windows Easy Transfer.
Man come one Evenbalance, make a patch for Punkbuster already
Download went pretty quick for me, not going to bother installing x64, I trust the md5's from the earilier leak. x86 went nicely into VMWare Workstation though. Good work Microsoft.
