 PostPost subject: Windows 7 - Differences between the same Build?        Posted: Tue Jun 24, 2008 9:19 pm 
Reply with quote
Hi,
Somewhere in the internet I found the Windows 7 Build 6519. Now i have a question about it. I have read about a partition that is created by the setup. Everywhere is written that its hidden and not accessable by the explorer. But in my Virtual PC I can access this partion. Also I have read about a timebomb, a BSOD every two hours. My sytem is running longer without any BSOD.
Is there a differenc between the same build? :o

Firstly, have you set the date back? That will allow you to run the build longer than two hours. Also the time sync can cause it to last longer.

I think I could access the partition as well. Either way, it isn't a large issue.

When I installed it (as a dual boot with vista) it only ended up with one, Windows 7 partition.
I had 20 gb free (empty partition) on the disk, and Windows 7 Installed to that partition without any changes...

so what is this actually? some sort of rescue partition? I'm curious because setup didn't ask for any partition making etc...

It writes some files for activation I think. I'm not really sure what is it for, but I'm sure it's not just for pleasure. hahaha

Yes the date is set back to the end of 2007. Could it be because I dont have activated? Nevertheless I have a serialnumber insert by the setup !?

The partition i didnt touch anyway. It was shown at the first start...

since this is based on Vista, you probably won't need a cd-key like vista too. I also never experienced BSOD, not even single one. It runs on VPC for more than 6 hours. and I also didn't touch the partition, it just there and I just look at it... :|

It depends on the your BIOS date.
Set it once to the current date, and you'll see.
I removed Vista and set up 7 as my main OS for a while.
So, I know all those issues.

It looks like that the extra partition is a partition made by the install for Vista's recovery image.

It just boots in to PE and then start repairing (like the OEM versions, if you buy a laptop or computer you get an recovery partition).

Its not large, i have an Windows Recovery Environment on CD about 300MB.

The second partition supposed to be hidden, but there is a bug in that...
Anyway, the other partition is not for recovery, but for some Windows files that cannot be seen on Windows...
Those are some Windows files, also, some part of the kernel is stoared there, in case windows cannot work anymore, to save some data.

Seems that everyone of you end up with a 500M partition with single boot~~ I tried Dual boot with Vista 64 bit and couldn't find any partition mentioned.. It couldn't be a recovery partition then~ Otherwise it's too unfair for dual boot users:)

Same deal for me, except I dual booted with Windows Vista 32 bit. (I installed to a blank, but already formated partition with no unallocated space on the disk, from inside Vista)

Well, I'd conclude that it is just for boot files at the moment. For those dual-booting, it will already have a compatible bootloader, so 7 won't overwrite it.

Ah. Good point.

At this point, I should mention I used the VistaLoader crack :oops:

I installed M1 (32bit) on a separate drive with my original vista drive install still attached (64 bit), it seemed to automatically give me the option on boot to choose which OS to boot into. After setting the date to the current date, M1 died, but setting the bios clock back resolved the issue after a re-auth of the install. I used the came ultimate key on both installs.
