Windows 7 on VMware

Microsoft released windows 7 for testing purpose only on last January 9th, 2009. I am one of them who downloaded it. I tried to install on both of my PC and laptop but with no luck. I had problems on both that Windows 7 did not start properly (blank black screen) after successfully installation. Successfully installation? huh. Those problems solved when I install Windows 7 on VmWare. Surprised? It comes with few applications since it released as testing purpose. I don’t have plan to use Windows 7 right now. Thinking of why they released Vista? Now I’m happy with oldie XP and Vista. This is the snapshot from Windows 7 in VMWare.


You can download Windows 7 from Windows 7 official site. Remember that Microsoft limits download to 2.5 millions downloads.
