Default Here goes nothing - Bye Bye XP, hello Win7


Finally going for the PT 9 / Win 7 upgrade.

New Hard Drives
Complete XP system drives removed and kept just in case


1) Do I install 64bit or 32bit if I am only using ProTools on this machine?
(Using 003R as interface)

2) I need Internet connection to do Windows upgrades and update iLok. I only have ability to use wireless Internet and I have a TP Link 300mbps internal wireless card. Any problems with this?

3) Am using all updated Plugins from my PT 8 LE system. Assume I need newer versions of some Plugins. Should I just download latest version of every non Digi plugin and install just to be sure?

4) Drivers - I downloaded latest drivers from Digi Download page - 002_003 Rack v90265. Do I wait till ALL Protools software (including the 9.05 updater) have been installed before installing the drivers?

5) I want to use IcyDock drive bays for System drive. Should I just run the Sata cable that used to go from the Motherboard to the System drive and connect it to the back of the IcyDock? Any Bios changes required?

6) What about hardware drivers for my Video Card, CD . DVD, etc. Do I need to download these or will Win 7 have all I need?

Have I missed anythin?

Thanks in advance....
