Windows 7 64bit RC
How do I upgrade from the trail version?

k I have the 7100 build and I would like to know if I can upgrade it to Windows 7 Home Premium and if so how?

And would I need to buy the upgrade disc or the full one.

Most all of us would recommend a clean install, and yes you can use the Upgrade version. When you boot the DVD, it will scan the HD to see a prior OS and allow use of Upgrade version key.

However, many have reported fine performance using a workaround to do an in-place Upgrade from the RC to another retail version of Windows 7. Let us know if trying this would interest you and we will link you to it.
