I have just installed Windows 7 Home Premium on our Dell Inspiron 600m (old, outdated, underpowered, etc.) dual-boot with Linux laptop.
I have some questions: 1. How do I run Windows Update? 2. How do I manually run Windows authorization/activation (which must be done in the first 30 days)? There is a Window feature in the Control Panel called "Windows Process Activation Service" with the sub-entries of: - .NET Environment - Configuration APIs - Process Model Are these things I should turn on? 3. What are XPS documents? I want to be able to print to postscript so I can transfer the postscript (with all the fonts) to my Linux system to make new PDFs to replace ones which were made on a Windows system without all fonts embedded (which are hard to read on Linux). Is that at all related? 4. Installing Windows 7, of course, over-wrote my GRUB boot sector information. I have a procedure to fix the boot system of our main computer, which is single-boot and has /boot as /dev/sda1: 1. Boot SystemRescue CD. 2. Execute "startx" 3. At a terminal prompt, type, "grub <enter>". 4. Type, "root (hd0,0)". 5. Type, "setup (hd0)". 6. Type, "quit". 7. Reboot. Since the laptop has First partition - Windows 7 Second partition - another NTFS partition Third partition - /boot, should I change line 4 above to: Type, "root (hd0,2)" ? 5. Can I go ahead and install Dell's XP drivers and have things work properly? The network is now working properly, so I figure I should not install that driver, but the audio is not working. 6. Anything else I should know?
