Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I have got a Windows 7 x86_64 Disk. What (Kaboobly Doo) information do I need to know?

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I have done XP dozens of times. Is it different?

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I do not have a beard. Will it matter?

That will not matter at all.

Is BSD easier to install nowadays?

I have not looked at BSD since 1999 or so.

I did not like it back then and chances are it is still bad today.

Sounds like you should leave BSD alone. Can you swim?

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I tried the autodetect utility. It said that bla-bla-bla is required for this system. I downloaded that (with the utility) and tried running it, it said my system does not support this.

I tried installing Catalyst by downloading the setup itself. It is either failing or appearing to have succeeded but not giving the required switchable graphics functionality.

I tried the HP Support Assistant. It downloads some Kaboobly Doo and fails installing it.

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I have two cards - Intel HD and AMD Radeon. AMD Radeon is better but I do not know what it is good for since it generates too much of heat for any gaming.

The Catalyst Control Centre enables me to select one of the GPUs at a time.

I did not know that catalyst would control another GPU.

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I uninstalled AMD's drivers and installed the driver for the intel chip. The problem is temporary resolved. But I cannot use the AMD GPU now.

The Radeon card? But since that overheated anyway why do you care?

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

I do not. I do not think I can use the Radeon Card with this Laptop at all.
