Formatting Option While Selecting Custom Option?
In my laptop existing OS is Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

Hardware config is
HP i7 Quad processor 1.7 GHz.
4 GB DDR3 Ram,
500 GB HDD.

My system perf is slow. I installed few softwares. I have deselected most of the startup services and programs from msconfig. Eventhough my system bootup time is slow, and whenever i open mycomputer it taking time to load.

I have decided to install Windows 7 Enterprise Edition x64 by formatting my C drive. But there is no option while i do clean install.

Windows 7 Dialog Box, Greyed Out?
In the Link, is a picture of the dialog box that shows greyed out. I have been helping a friend with her computer. The system is a windows 7, 64 bit, home version, everything stock. I have cleaned out the system free from viruses and other malicious codes that could have been lurking around there. Installed avast and mbam with spybot on reserve. Everything works, until this happens. The only way that we can make the dialog box fix is to change the display settings and then apply the settings. Later on after answering the question or downloading a file, change the settings back.

Network ID Checkbox Greyed Out
I am trying to connect Windows 7 64bit to my SBS 2003 server and I cannot set the domain name in the network ID Box. It is greyed out. I am using the Beta release build 7000.

While debugging, I noticed that the netlogon service is not started, and it will not start when I click on it. Trying to start it generates the following error message in the System Log:

This computer is configured as a member of a workgroup, not as a member of a domain. The Netlogon service does not need to run in this configuration.

I didn't intentionally set it up as a member of a workgroup, how can I disable the workgroup membership so that I can get it to join my office domain?

I also tried to do the http:....Connect computer process after creating the client on the server, but I get a message that Client SBS setup does not accept computers with this Microsoft Operating System.

Is there anything that I can do to get this to connect, or is this a problem with my Beta version.

Internet Settings Greyed Out?
I recently went into my security settings in Google Chrome (The same is in IE8) and had seen that the slider that adjusts the settings for restricted sites is greyed out and i cannot change it. I've seen on many forums that this can be fixed with a simple registry edit. The closest i've come is by going into regedit and accessing;mHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet Settingsones From there i'm confused. There are four sub-folders labeled 1 - 4 excluding a fifth folder called 0.Which folder do i access and edit or am i in a completely wrong spot? I am the Administrator. I have run multiple security scans. And also, my laptop is up to date with updates. Running Windows 7 Enterprise.32-bit i3 CPU

Network ID Is Greyed Out But Change Button Is OK
My customer has a small business with 2 x HP Proliant ML110 G6 servers installed ith VMware ESX 4.1.He has 7 Windows 7 64-bit workstations in a domain. He has a Windows 2003, 32-bit Domain Controller and 5 of the machines are in the domain. The other two are in a Workgroup and have DNS and DHCP on Windows 2003 Servers also 32-bit. All of these run as VMware Virtual Servers on the Proliants.The workstations in the Domain are all Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Everything has been working well for almost 3 years. A few weeks ago, they setup an extra server but decided that the VMware Server that the DC was on, was running low on memory, so they Cloned the Windows 2003 DC to the other VMware server. They say that everything was fine until they discovered that the shared printers no longer worked and various other problems.That was when I got involved. When I checked Control Panel --> System --> Advanced System Settings --> Computer Name, it shows the Full Computer name (plus domain), the Domain BUT...

The Network ID is greyed out but the Change Button is OK. If I click the Change Button, Member of Domain shows the domain name, but it's greyed out.I shut down the cloned Domain Controller and started up the original one, but this didn't make any difference.I tried taking one of the workstations out of the domain, but when I tried to put it back, the Domain stayed greyed out, so no way to put it back in. Netdom is also missing from all the workstations.They had a backup of this workstation, so I restored the backup and Voila! the computer was back in the Domain. Unfortunately all the backups of the other Windows 7 Workstations are WAY out of date.

Change Drive Permissions If Options Are Greyed Out?
Today I dual booted Windows 7 and Windows 8. Everything was fine, until I decided I wanted to point my music collection in Win8 to my Win7 music folder (turns out you can't do this right now anyway in the music app). I wanted to make sure that win8 didn't screw with any files so I changed the whole drive permissions in Win8 to have read access, but not write access of my Win7 drive. I did the vice versa for Win7.When I restarted my system I got a "windows created a temporary paging file..." error message and figured out its because I screwed with my file permissions. To fix it I just need to change the permissions back, however now they are all greyed out (even in the (hidden) Administrator account) and I can't figure out how to change the permissions back.

Action Center Icon Missing And Greyed Out
I had a malware that I got rid of, but it deleted many parts of the registry.I was able to find the missing parts and recover them. Only thing still not working is the action center icon in the taskbar. In the system icon activation screen, the action center activate/deactivate option is greyed out. I checked with gpedit.msc, but nothing is set there. I also tried sfc/scannow but it does not recreate missing registry parts.

Custom Upgrade - Advanced Options Greyed Out
I have 2 hard drives in a Raid 0 configuration. On this configuration, I have 2 partitions, C and D. C currently has Vista on it.

booted from win 7 64bit disk. Select Custom. Select advanced options and highlight the C partition. All of the advanced options are greyed out (format, delete, etc).

If I select the D partition, all the advance options are available, but obviously I don't want to install to the D drive.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to why the options are greyed out on my C partition? could it have to do with the Raid 0? It came from Dell like this.
