System Restore And Recovery Is Not For Wimps The process for the Alienware Aurora M7700 is definitely not for beginners.
Don't worry, system restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

During the driver installation phase, it's irritating to get no progress report on individual drivers, perhaps by way of a simple progress bar.
Also irksome, the system reboots automatically after the installation of each individual driver.
