Re: Unassisted windows 7 install

The instalation of Windows, while yes is a prerequisit for the instalation
of JAWS, does not automatically lead to the instalation of JAWS. It also has
nothing to do with the overall functioning or operation of JAWS, due to the
fact that during that process, JAWS cannot and does not exist. Therefore,
this thread does not apply. You may discuss it if you wish, however,

I believe this is a JAWS issue and here's why:

Because JAWS does not come pre-loaded in a Windows install like
Voiceover does, there is a "bootstrapping" process that one must
endeavor to repeat in order to install Windows so that JAWS can then
be installed.

Generally, I'm in favor of keeping the list on topic, especially when
folks abuse the priviledge. But I don't think this is the case here
and there seems to be widespread interest in the topic, as it's a
situation faced by every JAWS user sooner or later.

Or so it seems to me.
