Which is the newest version that uses RC Keys?

I'm currently using Windows 7 Build 7068 (beta) and if I read right, it will start to reboot every 2 hours starting tomorrow.

What's the newest version of windows 7x64 that uses RC keyes? (I read b7264 uses different keys)

I would have already... (of course already am running the RCs since May...) downloaded them long before now instaed of waiting until the last minute where you have to rush everything. You will need to clean install everything all over again when moving out of the beta there.

You don't need to clean install anyway, it is only recommended that you do.

The custom install option would simply pack everything up into the Windows.old folder to begin with so you wouldn't be losing out on files either way but avoid any problems trying to use the upgrade option between builds. The best upgrades are seen when the upgrade is actually a repair install using the same build.

I read that 7264 is the last version that accepts the keys

It can and there is a way of modding some files but some haven't had the best luck with it. Plus it's possibly against forum rules to discuss it

dont worry if you cant activate it try to rearm it, it will work. And by that way you can run it for 4 mouths. Till then Windows 7 will be out.
