Yes, as usual, I am still awake at this wee hour of the day. I want to finish the installation and configuration of my new machine which t I will use for my development tasks. I was able to re-partition the disk a while ago but it was not a hassle free process. After deleting all the partitions and created two partitions, i tried to install the win 7 pro edition given to me by my boss for home use. But during the installation, lappy unexpectedly reboot. The installation probably didn’t finish properly so it caused a reboot loop. But good thing, before I touch anything, I created a system recovery disks. I already anticipated that I may encounter a problem with the installation. After several reboot, I decided to restore the Win 7 Home Edition that comes with my laptop through the system recovery system.
Now, I am trying to install the tools that I need for development such as MS SQL 2008 and Visual Studio. These two are the most important tools that I need. If these tools will run on Win 7 Home Edition Premium, then, there is no need for me to upgrade my OS Win 7 Pro. I’ll just use the free license on my old desktop which badly needs re-installation and re-configuration. I’m hoping and praying that I’ll be able to configure this machine before Monday so I can also start reconfiguring my desktop.
