Microsoft® Windows® 7 Installation Tips
What are the tips to install Windows 7 and the installation enhancements over Windows Vista?
Installing a software and getting the computer running is can prove to be quite easy. There are very few decisions to make, limited to entering your product key, logon name, password and computer name, selecting a public or private network and your time zone. Later if it detects other Windows 7 computers with a Home group name, it will ask for the Home group password. You will need your network name, too. You should make sure that your computer is compatible with Windows 7. Also make sure the processor speed and RAM are equivalent to or greater than the specifics on the Windows 7 box. Backup the all documents and personal files to an external hard-drive. Install any anti-virus software after completing the Microsoft operating system install.
The features and enhancements of Windows 7 over Vista are:
- Enhanced performance and speed
- Less bundled program
Enhanced performance and speed
Before Windows 7 every new Windows operating system released by Microsoft needed more hardware requirement in order to run faster and smoothly than the previous versions. But it has certainly changed with Windows 7 as it provides far better performance and speed than Windows Vista with the same hardware configurations. From experiences, it often performs even better than Windows XP especially in terms of Windows start time and a few applications.
Less bundled program
Microsoft listened to feedback of Windows users and critics and removed many of the bundled items such as Messenger and Live Writer etc. Many people hardly use them and so there is no use of bundling them with the OS, as was the case with Windows Vista. But now Microsoft has put them separately for download in their own website instead of bundling them so that users who need it could download them free from the Microsoft website.
Windows 7 is more stable operating system and there have been hardly any bugs reported till now. On the other hand Windows Vista was known to crash a lot of computers at the start and many users had downgraded to Windows XP due to the same reason. Even Windows XP was not stable at the start and most people only liked it after Service Pack 2 came out. It might also have been due to the extensive beta testing by Microsoft of Windows 7 Operating System but it is a lot better than Windows Vista in terms of stability too.
