i never got the beta copy so i can't test this. it's too good to be true since there's also an upgrade from RC to final.

A FOOLISH "TRICK".
ANYTIME one runs a Beta or RC of any software, the software should be Clean Installed as Perfect as Possible.
This is why MS Demands the Win7 RC1 O/S be Re-Clean Installed.
Makes Sense [ NOT ] to Shortcut This Requirement with a Foolish "Trick" as in the link above.
Regards,
Rick P.

Rick, why is foolish?

i have upgraded Debian from bleeding edge releases to production releases without any problems so why it now becomes foolish when we talk about Windows?

Yeah, I forgot Linux and MS O/Ses are about identical.

Just finished Re-compiling my XP Pro Kernel so was a little quick to reply above - sorry.
