Drivers do help a little...

I'm a lil worried ATM...  Installed the beta, but it's ignoring my Vista partition.. (No does show up in my computer)
Well at least it "shows" as being an option on the boot menu.  lol
Running the update bit ATM..

On another note...  Windows-7  first impression..

OK I haven't played with it much as of yet, but so far it's kinda reminding me of the change from Win-95 to 98.
