Windows Even though the Windows 7 beta had been available on piracy networks for a while now, it still hadn't been officially released. During his pre-show keynote at CES, Steve Ballmer officially launched the Windows 7 beta onto the world via TechNet, MSDN, and Connect. It will become available to the general public this Friday.

This worked for me: I shut down and disconnected the data cable to the first HD. Booted up and the install then went without a hitch. After I was done with the install I shut down and reattached the data cable to the first drive. I then powered back on and hit the F12 key to bring up the boot device menu and selected the second drive with Windows 7 on it. It booted just fine and GAG comes up if I boot and take no action.

I will try and see if GAG will find the Windows installation next. I did manage to lock up Windows within an hour to the point where the only way out was to use the power button. And I can duplicate it 100% of the time. :-)

Now if I can just get an activation key for the beta.
