I have a machine, a P4, 2.6 Ghz processor wth 2 MB RAM. It's set up to dual boot XP and Win7 RC. It has 2 hard drives with the first drive having win XP and Win 7. The secong HD is strictly data and documents.

I have Office 2003 installed on the C partition with Win XP. I,ve installed other apps on Win7, but installed those apps on the corresponding Win XP partition to save space. My question is: if I install Office in win7 to the same location it is on the Win XP partition, would I need to reactivate it after it is installed?

Some of my initial findings on Windows 7 RC is that is seems to run fine on this old P4 system, but it didn't find the nvidia video drivers. I have a newer Pentiun duo quad core PC which runs Vista, which I won't run the Win7RC OS on. Thoughts?

I already found the nvidia drivers that work with Windows 7, which worked fine.

I did load Office 2003, but I did end up having to reactivate it over the internet

I do find that IE8 works much better in Windows 7 than XP. Next step is to install Firefox in Win 7.
