Windows 7: Help Installing RTM 7600 from version 7100. LOOOK

Help Installing RTM 7600 from version 7100. LOOOK

Hii all,

I recently downloaded and installed the Windows 7 (7100 Beta Version) onto my computer off the Microsoft site. Only to realize that the new version (7600) was already available on torrent sites etc. Which i promptly downloaded.

I have not partioned my hard drive when i first installed Windows 7, previously upgrading from Vista.

Anyway, I extracted the .iso files into a folder in my documents and ran the install file for 7600. Only to when i reached the stage of 'checking for compatability' (just before installing), I got the following error message.


"You cant upgrade this prerelease version of windows 7"

Would it be nesscessary to make a clean (new) copy of windows on my computer, rather then choose the upgrade selection on the installation setup. I really dont want to do that but i also do not want to be stuck with the beta version.

I am using a Dell Studio laptop, 2.20 Ghz Processor and 3GB ram.

Thanks in advance.

James.

hi barker, and welcome to the forums.

a clean install is generally preferred, but you can upgrade if you want, by editing one of the installation files.

mount your installation iso, and find the cversion.ini file in the sources folder, then change the MinClient number to 7232.

then resave/burn the new iso with the modified file, and everything should go smoothly.

hope this helps!

Install of 7600

Unfortunate you need to do a clean install!

But you have an option which may helps you: WET! WET is an program whit full name Windows Easy Transfer and located at: Start ->All Programs ->Accessoires -System Tools. With WET you can copy programs and settings to an external device/drive (USB Harddisk pp) and later use WET after the clean install again for to get all back.

That may saves you the time and hassle of new installation of all programs.

Good luck.

Since he wants to upgrade 7100 to 7600 wouldnt he have to set min to 7000?

Do i HAVE to reburn the .iso if the files are already extracted?

It might save some time.
Thanks.
