update from 7000 to 7022 automatic?

Its always a big mystery when it comes to MS and the build releases. With the latest leaked build, would we be able to update to build 7022 from 7000 with microsoft update? or would it require a fresh install?

It won't be thru Windows Update. They'll probably give it to us like they did 7000.

As Airbot rightly said, any official sanctioned releases of Windows 7 will most likely be made available through the same channels as were used for the official Public Beta

when this becomes available it should be possible to either update an existing installation or to install fresh.

It may also be possible to do the same with the unofficial Torrent leaks

As far as I am aware the next official release will be the release candidate sometime in April

so would it be similar to an "upgrade" the same as XP to vista was? So you download the build, burn it to disk, boot like a fresh install and would have a upgrade option?

In so much words, yes. And it most likely won't be 7022 that M$ will release. Probably a later build.

I would be surprised if the RC official build did not include an upgrade option as this would by definition be as close to the release build as possible and the upgrade would be normal for retail builds.

As I understand it is possible to perform an upgrade with the 7022 torrent build but cannot confirm this as I have not downloaded it

If at all possible I would recommend that a fresh install is always performed rather than an upgrade as upgrades tend to be less stable, of course this is of less importance with a time limited Beta release, that a long term install, but should still be considered

Umm, no. Ever since Vista, Microsoft only allows upgrade installs if you run the CD from a supported OS. e.g. XP SP2 if you want to upgrade to Vista, or Vista SP1 if you want to upgrade to W7.

I'm not sure I understand. You're saying he couldn't upgrade from 7000 to a higher build of 7 when he has the higher build on disk?

These are 'interim' builds, not released to public, not meant to be used by the public, and particularly, not suitable for 'general release'.

This board (and any other for that matter) could become very confused with people's issues regarding Windows 7 faults, if we were all using different builds, especially ones which have obviously been leaked.

We all need to be on the 'same' level here, if were to test and iron out Windows 7's faults/bugs before RC1, surely?
