Disk image flash
Just a quickie,
I have been using build 7229, and it has been absolutly brilliant.
Now, apart from that, i have had general probs, one of which forced me to reinstall everything (Kaspersky 6.0 does not work properly with win 7, well i did'nt with me, had a BSOD when i rebooted, one of which explained a process that had been terminated, process that the CPU runs, anyway the HDD is formatted and i restarted again), this has now forced me to make a disk image incase something happens.
No what i wanna know is, can i use that disk image or a back-up and flash that onto an RTM version (when there released), so's i don't have to reinstall everything. i.e. the back-up or disk image does it all for me.
Or is this not possible.

If you mean an image of the existing installation , then No.
Restoring the backup image will completely replace your RTM install , and you will be back in exactly the same state as when you made the image.
You could use Windows Easy transfer to transfer selected data and settings to another drive/partition.
Install the RTM .
Install all your programs.
Use WET to transfer the data and settings you saved back to your new installation.
