7100 RC will allow upgrade from 7077 only

Hello just found this out,

Build 7100 will allow upgrades after all but from build 7077 up only. Without having to edit install routine.

Hope this helps.

This may help you:

Quote:
1.Download the ISO as you did previously and burn the ISO to a DVD.
2.Copy the whole image to a storage location you wish to run the upgrade from (a bootable flash drive or a directory on any partition on the machine running the pre-release build).
3.Browse to the sources directory.
4.Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad.
5.Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build. For example, change 7077 to 7000.
6.Save the file in place with the same name.
7.Run setup like you would normally from this modified copy of the image and the version check will be bypassed.

hmmm... now would that mean that 77 was a pre "beta" RC? :P

I'd be interested in comparing a "change log" of the two

you should concentrate on a market analysis of a lemonade stand this summer.... you need some gear, man, lol....

use skydrive, 25 gb to use there... just cant have any one file larger than 90 mb. although if your upload isnt up to snuff, this wont be an alternative
