  10. Technet • Cost: $350 for the first year, $250 per year thereafter • Benefits • Free copies of virtually everything Microsoft makes, including all versions of Windows and Office • Up to 10 copies of most products • Limitation • Only for one person

  11. Not in textbook Windows 7 Versions and Installation

  12. Disk Partitions • Hard disks are large—often 320 GB or more • It is a good practice to divide the hard disk into several separate portions called partitions • Each partition typically appears in the Computer window with a different drive letter

  13. Installation Options • Clean install • Start with an empty hard disk or partition • You will get the most stable install this way • BUT: you will need to install all your applications and migrate over your documents and settings • Windows Easy Transfer may help • Upgrade • From Windows Vista SP1 or SP2 to Windows7 • Keeps installed programs, settings, and documents • You cannot upgrade Win XP to Windows 7

  14. Installation Boot Options • Single-boot • Windows 7 as the only operating system on the computer • This is the normal situation • Dual-boot or multi-boot • Two or more operating systems (OSs) on the same computer • Each OS is on its own disk or partition • Each time the machine starts up, the user chooses the OS to boot to

  15. Norton Ghost • A single machine is set up with the OS and applications, preferences, and data • The Ghost Server copies that entire hard disk through the Ethernet wire • That required 20 minutes for the Eee netbooks you are using now • All the other machines are made into duplicates simultaneously through Ethernet • That took another 20 minutes • BUT: Ghost is hard to set up • It took us 14 hours to set it up the first time

  16. System Image Backup • A feature included in Windows 7 (and Vista) • The entire system partition is copied to an image file • The file may be stored on an internal hard drive, or a USB removable hard drive • Works like Ghost, but without the multicasting • Can restore an entire operating system in 20 minutes
