Upgrading 7 builds

#1
So far I have installed and used only 7 build 7201. There are other builds now and yet to come. Do 7 builds upgrade no issues, has anyone upgraded 7 to a later build ?

Thank you.

Ease of upgrading is a virtue of Win7. I've upgraded many builds. You might want to not go higher than 7260 where you can still use your RC key.

I see, it should be no problem. What is this about build 7260, must be the last one among 7 RC's ?

I forgot to ask if it is possible to upgrade to a different language distribution, like French 7201 to English 7260 ?

i upgraded from 7227 to 7600 RTM, how: simple.
1- mount image
2- open disc
3- select setup.exe
4- goto ^^ properties
5- set compatibility mode to: Vista SP2
6- start Setup
7- choose Upgrade
8- done

normal upgrade wont work, & the trick where you edited the cversion.ini file which allowed an upgrade, from some builds doesnt work no more also. so its clean or the above :p
