Attend a Windows 7 Loadfest for Partners near you & get a FREE copy of Windows 7!

image We are rolling out a Windows 7 Loadfest for Partners in 50 cities across the US, and here is your opportunity to participate!  In addition, if you attend Microsoft’s Windows 7 partner loadfest events, you will receive a FREE copy of the full product before general availability!  At these Partners loadfests, you will get Windows® 7 installed onto your PC, which must meet the minimum configuration listed below, learn about the key improvements that have been made from the user perspective and the great new features Windows 7 has, to better manage your computers in the corporate environment. Also, walk away with presentations on the Windows 7 business value as well as all the materials needed to host your very own Windows 7 Launch event for your company or customers.

  • Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (to enable the Aero theme)

Important Notes:

  1. The system WILL BE WIPED, (unless you use virtualization), so do NOT bring systems that have any data on them that you wish to keep.
  2. If you decide to bring a Desktop Computer please review the following:
    a. We will NOT be providing monitors, keyboards, mice, or any associated cables, including power cables, so make sure you bring the required hardware to run your system.
    b. Get there early as you will likely need a little more time to setup than other users.
    c. We will NOT have any hand trucks or carts to help you bring equipment in so, please come prepared.
  3. Make sure your test computer has a wireless card that works with Windows Vista/Windows 7.
  4. There will be 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 DVDs available*. (while supplies last)
