Update and upgrade
Wheezy boot fine. There is a new config stage, looks a bit like a bios config stage. In theory it has also extended the partition on the second boot. The screen is not full size but I have fixed that before. Ran sudo apt-get update and also sudo apt-get upgrade both took a long time. Also ran fbset which displays the screen setup. It is booting in 16 bit scene mode. To be honest 16 bit mode was pretty good on squeeze, even for video. I may tinker with this later but on squeeze omxplayer did not work in 32bit mode. Having said that I did use the config tool to give me 64MB of graphics memory. This may help with video type stuff.
