  1. I forced upgrade by passing -d option … 🙂 also when it will be released tomorrow you may need to wait for a little more time as their server comes under load due to heavy demand.

  2. I upgraded with the -d option about a week ago, and have been taking updates as they come out.

    I have a new Dell XPS410, came pre-loaded with 7.04 and everything worked fine.

    After the upgrade the 2 issues I have are that my sound card is no longer detected. I have tried the many solutions posted online to to avail.

    The other thing I have noticed is a drastic drop in the response of the system. Applications are taking an extraordinary time to launch.

    I may reload the pc completely after I download the official release today.

  3. t_shawn,

    I also did -d upgrade few days back. Everything worked fine except my wireless card was dropping packets. So I blacklisted rt61pci driver and compiled and install latest driver from official site. However I’ve not noticed any a drastic drop in the response of the system (hell I’ve quad core CPU and load is always below .12).
