Windows 7 on eeePC

OK read here what Microsoft says on the download page:

And read the installation instructions:

The free windows 7 release client will be available until at least the end of July 2009 and they are not limiting the number of product keys, so there is plenty of time to download it. ADVICE GET A SPARE KEY NOW!!! But as everyone including Microsoft advise watch the dates. It will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. By then the full version will have come out you can buy it or just move onto something else.

When you download you need a windows live id (mine is linked with my hotmail account.)

I have done the install to my Asus eeePC (4G model) details below....

Then I'll be installing all the usual Ham Radio goodies (HRD, CW skimmer, CWGet, WinTest etc..)

Read this for the howto....
Especially note the details on the link to here

For 900/901 and above this method is probably better:

One thing I found the 512MB RAM module 701 eeePC comes with needs to be in place for the install, so keep it in place or put it back before you consider upgrading to more memory otherwsie the pagefile and hybernation files are created too big.

Mine seems to run all the usual ham radio goodies fine and HRD defintely works.

Now trying to get mine running off a 32GB SDHC card instead.
