…upgrade to Windows 7 on my desktop and notebook PCs.
The simple Vista-to-7 upgrade of the desktop PC seems to have gone swimmingly: about six hours total, between prepping, performing, and verifying.
The laptop is taking much more time, as I’m completely reformatting the drive at the same time to also upgrade from 32- to 64-bit, which means also reinstalling all applications and most of the settings (although the Windows Easy Transfer tool—a perfectly worthless tool in previous system restorations or upgrades—did a remarkable job this time, not freezing up and genuinely helping out with the settings restoration).
So, the screenplay is simmering on the back burner for now. Stay tuned…
