How can I upgrade my Windows 7, to the latest build (7106 ?)
Good question. I think the only way is formating your windows 7 partition and installing the newer build, but I haven't tried it myself yet. Nilsb7/PACMAN
found this in the forum hope it helps Hi. Yesterday I read (either in this forum or somewhere else, maybe in a torrents site) how to make the installation of Windows 7 build 7100 RC allow the upgrade from a beta. Now I need it and I can't find it... Thanks Found it (sorry) To upgrade from beta you need to: - Extract the .iso contents to a storage location you wish to run the upgrade from (a bootable flash drive or a directory on any partition on the machine running the old build). - Browse to the sources directory. - Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad. - Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build. For example, change 7100 to 7000. - Save the file in place with the same name. - Run setup.exe like you would normally and the version check will be bypassed. Last edited by mehrlicht : He posted the above just passing it on Windows 7106 is not the latest build . 7077 was the latest build now replaced by windows 7100 .
And why exactly would you want to upgrade to a higher build? are there big changes? like say from 7000 to the latest. And can I keep all my programs and stuff? Nilsb7/PACMAN
Windows Xp mode as a free windows 7 Ultimate download A big plus for windows 7 http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/2009/apr/25/windows-7-xp-mode
huh? xp mode? I don't get it. whats xp mode? Can you give me a link or some screenshots? and isnt build 7100 a beta to? btw, I have the original beta from windows 7 build 7000 installed. Nilsb7/PACMAN
There is a link in my above post hope that helps you out on the query
Oh stupid me... But what are the changes between 7000 and 7100? Is build 7100 the RTM version? I thought there are only betas yet I is confused :s
RC hope that has helped you
Ahaa, yes it helped. Thank you. I am now downloading it ^^ But still what are the main changes between 7000 and 7100 or am I just wasting time while upgrading?
No its not a waste of time the RC is very good and 7000 is now a fairly old beta . It is of course up to you but the new 7100 RC is fast and stable at least so far as I can tell . Being the release candidate it is more or less the finished article . If you prefer though you can keep with 7000 In the end it comes down too what you want to do update or wait for the RTM . Good luck
allright thank you ^^ and I can just install this build as you wrote in one of your previous posts without deleting/formating anything from the 7000 build I got installed, right?
A clean install is always best . If you really want to do an upgrade it should work but make sure you check the forum, for any issues you may encounter . I always clean install so I cannot be 100% certain you would not run into problems along the way .View attachment 468 Good luck with your install if you decide what is best for you . I would not like to see you have any problems so as I said please make sure to get as much help as possible b4 reaching you decision
Hmmm, I think it should work... why else do they go trough the trouble of changing the MinClient build number? =] I'm gonna try it! and I'll post if it worked/or not ^^ Nilsb7/PACMAN
View attachment 469 Ok really hope it works for you We salute you etc Just take it one step at a time Found this may help you : http://www.blogsdna.com/3083/how-to-upgrade-windows-7-beta-build-7000-to-windows-7-rc-build-7100.htm
I did an upgrade just to see it works and it did. I went from 7077 with no problems and no messing about with the Minclient number thing. I am looking forward to seeing what this XP mode is like. There is no sign of it with 7100 yet so I assume it will be downloadable in May.
Great stuff well done and yes I think you are right about when it will be available .
The compatibility check failed one more time lol, I use build 7057 and want to upgrade to 7100
Build 7106 CVERSION.INI editing I was informed that I can upgrade my build 7000 to the 7106 by editing the CVERSION.INI file in the SOURCES folder. Yet the file shows: MiniClient value : 7000.0. So I cannot changing this value to a lower one for upgrading. Can I still use it as it is and upgrade my 7000 to 7106 without having to re-install all the programs again ?
uhm I think you already said the answer yourself. Change the value to ANYTHING lower than 7000 and it should work. I guess. I did the same thing 5 minutes ago and I'm now backing up my data but I'll tell you if it worked. btw. I'm upgrading from build 7000 to build 7100. Nilsb7/PACMAN I succesfully updated my windows 7 build 7000 to windows 7 build 7100 without any problems! The only thing I did was changing the minclient number to 6999.9 It took me about 2 hours to update. Everything seems to respond a lot faster when like opening the start menu and apps, but I did not find any other changes (yet). I'll let you know when I find new ones. Nilsb7/PACMAN
