So what's the sence in this project? I think on a mobile device, you shoud use win xp or linux, but not windows vista or windows 7 (which should be nearly equil to vista at the moment)

Might be Windows 7 32Bit Beta Build 6801,he should get a better cellphone or whatever he used to film this.

Nothing special though since XP = Vista = Windows 7...so why shouldnt it run.

V said...

was it Windows 7 or just Vista with changed labels? :)
Anyway, it is terrible slow. Stick with XP is the best choose for this machines.

This is a very early beta build. The most up to date version has a totally redesigned toolbar/startbar. Also remember that that the latest build of windows 7(only in the hands of developers at the moment)runs on 1Ghz and 1gb ram like vista does with 2Ghz and 2gb of ram. The boot time of windows seven is almost cut in half when compared to vista(obviously not on this build though).

When all is said in done, Windows seven will be amazing on netbooks and umpcs alike!

this is a fake not windows 7, the next win will have a real fast boottime and instand on. i thnk in january you can see a much better beta version and in march we can official download for testing. or not ?

Yeah its a slow boot up. But, when the final release arrives, it should be fast for netbooks. This will be a stripped back kernel, & the most componentised Windows to date. Although still a bit beefy, I think MS is learning something from the *nix crowd eh.

Slow boot but if you check carefuly, the PC has been turn off wrong.. a little check disk maybe ?

I've installed Windows7 on my Kohjinsha SC3 and it seems faster.

The install itself took less than half the time of a Vista install. Before the install, I dutifully copied my driver files from my empty partition to my desktop. I left the files in the partition and thought 7 would just overwrite them. When I pulled the drive content, there were the driver files, just where I left them.

Too bad it expires in 30 days...unless of course I decide to sail over to you know where, AARRRGGG...

Well it´s slow but it´s BETA.
And, most important, it´s work on Netbook´s.
Good news.
By the way... Why he shaked all the time???

This actually is a fake video. You can tell by the boot screen, with the green bar moving across the screen. The 6801 boot screen has a blue bar with the words "Starting Windows"

Here's the real boot screen, even in the 6801 build:

It looks real to me. It's the same splash screen I have on my SC3. This build is all over the net in torrents (Yes, I seeded for three days).

As an additional note, when the SC3 first appeared, people were trying the "Serenity" h264 720p trailer as a test of the Poulsbo chipset. It stunk on ice. It was, of course the first tried I did after I loaded 7. I used the "Balanced" power setting.

Result? It ran as smooth as glass in WMP. Now whether this is Windows7, the WMP 12 Beta, or whether it would fall apart after five minutes I couldn't tell you, but it was sweet.

Really? Because on my 6801 build it gives the Starting Windows screen shown in the link above.

Don't forget that pre-release builds have debug code in them and are not as fast as the released product will be.

I saw the linked videos screen the first time I installed.

Then the boot loader took over and what I see now is the "Choose the operating system" black screen (With 7 being the top choice).

I tried making a video showing the difference in boot time, from the select operating system screen to no more vista blue donut of death, but its even worse than above.

I did time it though and Windows7 takes about 1:05 and Vista takes over two minutes.

I'll post it on YT later and you can check it out.

I'm off to install it on my HTPC to see if those native BluRay rumors are troof.

If you want waste 6 minutes of your life watching Windows 7 vs. Vista Home Premium start on a Kohjinsha SC3, here you go:

Read the notes, the Vista boot is much longer than pictured. Whereas Windows 7 is ready to use in about 1:05. But, as you can tell from the l-l-l-ong shut down time, 7 wasn't really fully booted up when I shut it down for this soon to be award winning video.

Microsoft is developing windows 7 with netbooks in mind, and win 7 is supposed to address Vistas hogging of resources.

So seeing it run on an MSI Wind is good...
