    Default XP or Windows 7

    I will probably have to get a new OS. I notice, after reading some of these threads, that there can be some problems with Win 7 and the Super PC's. There is talk of having to use a clean HD before installing Win 7. If that is the case will Win 7 format and wipe the HD clean before installing OS. And is Windows XP still a good system. I am trying to decide which OS to go with. I was using XP but I think the CD disk has become corrupted. I also have the M2N-Sli deluxe version of the motherboard and PC with the EVGA video card. Antec case.

    I'm not aware of any problems with the MySuperPC builds and Windows 7. If you're installing the OS on a new system, then Windows will perform a clean install. If you're upgrading from a previous version of Windows, you may be able to save some of your files and data. It depends on the previous OS. I would encourage you to do a clean install of Win 7 64-bit.

    So your saying that the Win 7 disk will format and clean the HD just like XP does. While I am on this subject; AM2 processor will not work with XP3. IS there something in the BIOS settings that can change this.

    Look through this. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ndows-7-a.html

    I was thinking the XP SP3 problem with AMD was only on HP computers. I could be wrong about that. May need to do a little research.
