Known Issues:

OIT has tested Windows 7 on supported hardware including standard supported software and found no issues with this software. If client hardware is anything other than a Dell Optipliex or Dell Latitude, client should contact your hardware vendor to ensure that there are Windows 7 drivers for your machine. Client also has to have all original cd's for their machine. If client is running any specialized software for mission critical UTA business, then you should talk to your software vendor to verify that the software is compatible with Windows 7 before you consider an upgrade or purchase of a new machine with Windows 7 installed.

OIT is ending support for Windows XP on December 31, 2013 and it will be removed from our support structure.

If you encounter a machine which is locked and will not allow a login, you can access it using RDP and force the current user to log off.

Windows 7 running in virtual machines may have issues using the KMS server to register if the VM network settings are set to NAT.  Setting the VM network settings to bridge solves the issue.
