I have Windows 7 Ultimate Beta copy on my PC when I purchase the Windows 7 Official Copy do I have to uninstall and reinstall Windows 7 or will it upgrade automatically?

When you put the install disc it it will ask you if you want to upgrade or do a fresh install..
With an upgrade you will keep all your files and settings
With a fresh install all is wiped
What ever you want to do buddy
I prefer fresh install, but i have all my drivers & files stored on an external drive anyway, so it doesnt matter.
But the pluses of a fresh install is A: I deletes all the crap we acculmate & settings we screw up B: All your trial programs can be re-installed (Yay-- Play on FREE again for 14days)
C: Well there aint a C.. But Yey-- Play on FREE again for 14 Days!! lol :)
