PXI-8110 Windows 7

Hey Folks!

 

IT keeps nagging me with my Windows XP on my PXI-8110 + Hypervisor.

I've to install Window 7 on it. Is anybody here, who did this before? Any complains about it, or caveats I've to take care of? Instructions maybe?

 

Thanks,

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

in fact, installing ´Windows 7 on the PXI + hypervisor is technically possible but we would not recommend it you to do so since the installation process is not trivial at all. Alot of other drivers of peripherials have to be installed manually and this has to be done with high caution.

Anoj,

 

thanks for your reply. Leaving Windows XP on this machine is not an option.

Since you said, it would be possible to do it, do you have a list of instructions to install all those drives and software manually?

 

Thanks, Stefan

Hi Stefan,

 

unfortunately, we cannot provide you the instructions, since it is not trivial to do as I mentioned before. Hence, we cannot guarantee anything what would happen if you decide to install Windows 7. Moreover, if you go to the NI support page for your PXI 8110

you will notice that drivers and all support materials are based on the XP version. Consequently, we do not recommend you to change the O/S.

 

Best regards
