Windows 7 upgrade was almost as painful as USA hockey loss

Posted By on February 28, 2010


I spent the afternoon and most of the evening struggling with upgrading to Windows 7, in between watching the USA lose 3-2 to Canada in OT in Olympic hockey. It wasn’t easy to switch from Windows 7 RC to Profession on a couple of computers, which by the way have been running flawlessly on both the Beta and Release Candidate operating systems.

I thought I had the entire upgrade figure out, but the “bitlocker” partition I installed caused me to overlook some the the automated C drive defaults after an email client update a few months ago. Thankfully I only lost 2 weeks of email due to my automated NAS drive back up. I’m glad to be running legal, although I still have a bunch of odds and ends software to re-install.
