Windows 7: Clean install with 2 HDs using 2nd as backup

30 Jun 2009   #1

Clean install with 2 HDs using 2nd as backup

Hi, I am currently running windows7 beta (64 bit Ultimate) on my primary pc with 2 sata drives set up as IDEs. Been away for a while and having just got pc running again to find beta OS runs out tomorrow so need to install RC which I have downloaded from MS.
I dont have a free external disc but could transfer all data to C drive and make the second disk free for new OS. Will I run into any probs having RC on second drive and old Beta still on original C drive? If not then I presume I can simply transfer data re-load programs and clean out old Beta OS on completion of clean install. Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Also can someone advise will beta close down tomorrow - 1st July? Jak
