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.

So I installed the 32 bit version and my oh my - lovely. In real life however I need lots and lots of RAM to work with which means x64 version was required.

OK brave me went ahead and installed the x64 version. This resulted is more BSODs than I've seen in windows 3.1.

tdx.sys breaks more than I would have thought possible. And with no detectable reason. But then it's Beta software and I have the luck of the Irish. Wht more did I expect !!

You might want to run a memtest on that machine, I'm running the x64 version and it has been 100% stable without a restart since install.

Edit: I just looked up what TDI does, and it sounds like it might be a network driver issue or an old application you're using?
