Windows 7 vs. Windows XP

Many PC manufacturers, including netbook makers, are alms a free upgrades and advancement agenda for Microsoft's Windows 7 and it's time we activate out how Windows 7 will accomplish on one of the a lot of accepted netbooks currently on the market! Using the absolution candidate, we installed Windows 7 on the Dell netbook and ran all the benchmarks we run in our abounding reviews in adjustment to get a abounding consequence on how Windows 7 endless up against Microsoft Windows XP on a netbook. Many in the association active netbooks are absolutely acquisitive Windows 7 holds its own on a netbook because, let's face it, 2002's Windows XP on any 2009 arrangement just seems backwards.

Armed with a 4 GB accelerated USB flash drive and step-by-step instructions by Kurt Shintaku, we were calmly able to install Windows 7 on the netbook. We aboriginal austere the Windows 7 RC angel to a DVD, but you could calmly arise the ISO to a basic drive instead. Following the affiliated instructions, we created a bootable Windows 7 accession flash drive with no issues.

Now, aback the flash drive is detected as a disposable harder deejay to the computer, we had to adapt the BIOS settings in adjustment to accomplish the flash drive the primary harder disk. Already we did this, the Windows 7 installer booted appropriate up and we were able to activate our Windows 7 accession just as any other. There is a slight trick, though, as already the installer copies the antecedent set of files to the harder deejay and reboots, you accept to access the BIOS afresh and set the centralized harder drive aback to the primary so it is the one that boots. Besides that, installing Windows 7 was a breeze.

Windows 7 had drivers installed for all of our accouterments appropriate out of the box except the ACPI disciplinarian which allows the dejected action hot keys to all plan correctly. However, afterwards a amount of updates, Windows 7 in fact knew that we had not installed the ACPI disciplinarian yet and acicular us anon to disciplinarian which we downloaded and installed and it formed perfectly. I would also acclaim installing the Intel Graphics disciplinarian from the alternative Windows updates as it does install some added files acclimated by the driver.

Now that we accept explained how we accept installed Windows 7 on the Dell netbook, let’s see how it performed adjoin the pre-installed Windows XP installation!
