Windows 7 win 7 rc on barebones system

how do you upgrade when you have a new computer with no os installed, except for win 7 rc. do you have to pay full price or do a custom install?

This would be the perfect time to use the Upgrade Media to do the little "trick" that I posted.. ;) In short, no you don't have to pay full price, you simply use the upgrade media to perform a clean install.. ;) (It will activate as well). The guide to do this has been posted.. ;)

Here is the thread with the guide... :)
