Winblows 7 Beta - getting less enthusiastic

Jan 14, 2009 | | |

I'm persevering with this Windows 7 thing. I've got to the point now where it won't boot my machine because it's trying to output a graphics mode that neither of my PCs will support (neither the ATI nor the Nvidia card).
This is after a long and drawn out battle just to get the damned DVD image to even boot.

Some further investigation reveals that it won't run the digital outputs on either video card during the install process. I've had to find an old DVI to analog adapter and run the analog outputs instead.

Eesh. If it's this bad just trying to install the damned thing, what's it going to be like if it ever boots?
