Windows 7 on Sony P Series (VGN-P588E)

Postby tjobrien2 » Thu Feb 26, 2009 20:54

I decided to try Windows 7 (Beta) on my new Sony P Series. It seems to run well and most of the built-in Windows 7 drivers worked. I haven't tried much of the advanced functionality yet though. I was curious if anyone else has loaded Windows 7 and what everyone elses experience has been.

I've got the 64GB SSD.

Boot times are good, although I haven't done any in depth analysis on it. Windows 7 seems to run faster than Vista on other machines I've tested it on too. Login times are faster, but I haven't loaded any of the Sony software back onto it, so that is probably a big part of that.

I'm running into an issue where "Desktop Window Manager" closes on startup. Also, some of the advanced graphics of Windows 7 don't work right. I haven't looked into these issues yet.
