Hi All,

I have a question that might sound naiive, however i do not know the steps.
If I would like to install windows 7 64 bit home premium edition on my laptop from the very beginning, are there any tricks, which i should be aware of or it almost the same as windows xp?

because I had it once installed it shows some system flaws e.g the time and date never update themselves unless i do them manually?

Thank you and happy new year
Cheers,

There's really nothing to it. Boot from the DVD and select to do a new/clean install. Be sure to back up any important data before doing this.

the problem with your time would most likely be that when it was installed that one time the box that asks if you would like the clock to automatically adjust for daylight savings time was not checked.

first of all, did the laptop come with win7? are you using the disk that came with the computer or another? If you are not using the os disk or the os that came with your system, you will most likely need to go to the laptop's manufacturers website and download their drivers for your specific system after you install. Generally if you do not, then you could have sound, wireless and other possible issues. From what i have seen in the help forums, sound and wireless are the two most common problems until you install the drivers.

The latest is SP2 and can be found here as a standalone: Download: Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - Five Language Standalone for x64-based systems (KB948465) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details or will come through using Windows Update.
The original issue is a question about Windows 7 installation. Your link is for the Vista SP.
