The core module that provides all of the Windows 7 capability that isn’t language- or Edition-specific is called MinWin.
3. When you copy a file to a library, Windows Explorer writes the file to the folder designated as the Save location. 4. To use federated search, you must download or create XML files for specific sites called Search connectors.
5. The only operating system edition that you can upgrade in-place to Windows 7 Professional is Windows Vista Business.
6. Upgrading a computer running Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Ultimate using Windows Anytime Upgrade requires 0 megabytes of additional hard disk space. 7. To migrate a computer running Windows XP to Windows 7, you can use a utility called User State Migration Tool.

The Windows 7 Starter edition is only available in a 32-bit version. 10. The maximum amount of system memory supported by Windows 7 Enterprise is 4 gb for 32bit and 192gb for 64bit.
Unit 1. Assignment 1. Home Computer Analysis
Processor: i5 4460 3.33 Ghz (Overclocked)
Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Extreme 3
Graphics Card: Nvidia EVGA GeForce 660
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 4x4 (4x4 GB)
OS: Windows 7 6x-bit
1. Windows Easy Transfer supports two types of migrations, called side by side and wipe and load.
2. When a serious problem occurs with Windows 7, you might be able to repair it by Starting the Windows PE operating system and running diagnostic tools. In this scenario, Windows PE is called by another name, which is Windows RE.
3. To migrate user profile information from one computer to another, you can use either windows easy transfer – GUI or user state migration tool (USMT). 4. A computer running Windows PE will automatically reboot after 72 hours. 5. Windows Easy Transfer supports migration using any removable storage medium Common to the two computers except Floppy disks.
6. The Windows 7 component that enables the computer to support more than one Language is called the MUI (Multi-language user interface).
7. The reason it is possible to remove the Windows 7 installation disk to supply the Setup Program with drivers is that Windows PE runs on a RAM disk.
8. To upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7, you must perform a Clean install. 9. The files and settings that Windows Easy Transfer can migrate to a Windows 7 computer Are primarily stored in User Profile Install.
10. As a preinstallation environment, Windows PE is a vast improvement over MS-DOS Because it includes internal support for Networking and NTFS.
Unit 1. Exercise 1. Upgrading
Dear Valerie Bernier,
Thank you for your email. I have reviewed and read through message. According to equipment that you have stated. You’re not quite eligible for an upgrade. The amount of memory and processor speed you have does not the meet the requirements for the next edition. The minimum requirements to run Windows Vista is 2 GB with at least 2.0+ Ghz processing speed to run it at a decent speed. However, if you want I would be more than happy to get the necessary equipment and parts for the upgrade for each workstation. The Microsoft office files will all be saved and transferred over along with the upgrade of each workstation. The Windows Server 2003 is fine just the way it is.
Unit 2. Problem Set 1. Unit 2 Problems.
1. By default, Windows 7 standard users are permitted to install Plug and Play devices only if their drivers are Digitally Signed.
2. The debilitating condition in which files are stored as clusters scattered all over a disk is called Fragmentation.
3. The file system included in Windows 7 that is specifically designed for use on flash drives is called exFAT32.
4. Technically speaking, you create partitions on basic disks and volume on dynamic disks.
5. In Windows 7, the FAT32 file system is limited to volumes no larger than 32 gigabytes.
6. The digital signature of a driver consists of a Checksum that is appended to the driver itself before publication.
7. To create a fourth primary partition on a basic disk, you must use the Disk Management utility. 8. To extend or shrink a partition on a basic disk, you must be a member of the backup operator or Administrators group.
9. The default partition style used by Windows 7 on an x86 computer is MBR. 10. All digitally signed drivers have undergone Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) testing. Unit 2. Assignment 1 using Virtual Library: Disk Redundancy Research 1. What does RAID stand for? Redundant array of inexpensive disks. 2. When would we use RAID? To increase performance and better data storage. 3. Define the following RAID types:
a. RAID 0 – No Parity. No Mirrors. Blocks Striped.
b. RAID 1 – Blocks Mirrored. No Stripe. No Parity.
c. RAID 5 – Blocks Striped. Distributed Parity.
d. RAID 6 – Blocks Striped. Two Distributed Parity.
4. Why is RAID 0 of any use if it offers no redundancy? Increased performance. 5. Why do you think that RAID 1 can be the most expensive? Why would people utilize it if it’s so costly? Equipment cost makes it expensive because you would need 3 separate OS and get 3 Harddisks. People would get it for the increased performance and excellent redundancy. 6. If you, as a home computer user, were to purchase a form of RAID, which would you choose and why? I would get RAID 0 for the increased performance. 7. What is the difference between software RAID and hardware RAID? Processing on motherboard versus processing on controller card.
Unit 3. Problem Set 1. Unit 3 Problems.
1. A software routine, which also acts as a filter that blocks certain type of incoming and outgoing traffic, while enabling other types is called a Firewall. 2. The Network Sharing Center tool provides a central access point for all of the network controls and connections on a computer running Windows 7.
3. A device that connects one network to another is called a Router. 4. The most common method for illustrating the operations of a networking stack is the OSI, which consists of seven layers.
5. Protocols that do not guarantee delivery of their data, but do operate with a very low overhead that conserve network bandwidth are called A Connectionless Protocol. 6. The Windows 7 command-line utility that can tell you if the TCP/IP stack of another system on the network is functioning normally is called ping.exe. 7. The Windows 7 command-line utility that enables you to generate DNS request messages and then transmit them to specific DNS servers on the network is called nslookup.exe. 8. Most networks use dhcp to dynamically assign addresses and configure computers to use them.
9. The Windows 7 utility that displays a list of the routers currently forwarding packets to a particular destination is called tracery.exe.
10. The top and bottom layers of the OSI model are called the Application and Physical layers.
