I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate Pre Beta again for reasons I will go into later.
This time Around I have disabled Automatic Updates because the patch KB958644 breaks Windows 7 and forces the Dell Mini 9 to boot into System Restore mode
So, anyway, after installation and initial patching, this time I am left with an Unknown Device in the control panel. The Device ID's are
And according to Chirs123NT's rather helpful Windows 7/Dell Laptop Site :-
"Now, it seems that this points to a file in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers called blbdrive.sys. Our best guess is that it has something to do with the Block Level Backup Engine (which is responsible for image-based backups in Windows Vista and higher, through a feature called CompletePC Backup and Restore), but we’re not 100% sure. If anyone has any information on this please let us know."
Now I am really confused, I have just plugged my Dell Mini 9 in at work, with Full Size USB keybaord, Mouse and External VGA monitor. I go to the control panel and said device is not longer listed as requiring attention.
