Dell Inspiron 700m RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok, so I'll admit that I didn't take very long trying, but my attempt at getting the W7 Beta working on my Dell Inspiron 700m  was less than 100% successful.  It looked FANTASTIC, and ran SUPER FAST (I loved the super quick boot up) but, unfortunately, I couldn't get the display to recognize as anything other than the default vga, and it couldn't even *detect* my network/wifi adapters to try to install drivers for them.  Ahh well, back to XP for me then.  Sad that my 4 year old laptop couldn't be supported, I think it would've been a great beta platform :)

  • the video card is a well known issue, due to the drivers being XDDM and therefore currently there is no planned support for them, as for the rest have a look here.

  • Many thanks.  Interesting, a search for "700m" on the forum brought up no results for me.
