beta to RC

#1
Can I upgrade beta to RC directly or should I do clean install for RC?
I have a lot of program installed on beta I would not like to lose or install again.

I couldn't upgrade the beta to the rc. I did a clean installation. For this moment maybe better to keep the beta.

Best to do a clean install :)

Oh yes, I agree

Please do a clean install or you'll be posting back here quite frequently due to problems with upgrading;)

Agreed, clean install is the way to go for sure.. ;) You'll have far less problems and an overall better experience with Windows 7 that way.. :)

Again the frequent advice. Don't install all your vulnerable gear on a Beta.

It's easy to upgrade from the beta to RC, i did it and have not had a single problem. You just have to alter the iso file to trick it into upgrading. This is not recommended if you plan on submitting test results as it's not the route Microsoft want you to take. Follow the instructions in this link How to Upgrade from Windows 7 Beta to RC Build 7100
