Installing Windows 7 Beta on Lenovo IdeaPad S10

I downloaded the 32-bit version of Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 and it took about 35 minutes to install on Lenovo IdeaPad S10. The recommended free space for installation is 8279MB. Contrary to reports on prominent websites, the evaluation copy will expire in August 2009 but as shown, it will expire on 2 July 2009.

All the hardware are automatically recognized in Device Manager except for one unknown device This can be resolved using the Energy Management driver from Windows XP.
