Here’s what you can do to bypass the check for pre-release upgrade IF YOU REALLY REALLY NEED TO:
  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 7100 to 7000 (pictured below).
  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.


These same steps will be required as we transition from the RC milestone to the RTM milestone.

Again, we know many people (including tens of thousands at Microsoft) are relying on the pre-release builds of Windows 7 for mission critical and daily work, making this step less than convenient. We’re working hard to provide the highest quality release we can and so we’d like to make sure for this final phase of testing we’re supporting the most real world scenarios possible, which incremental build to build upgrades are not. At the same time everyone on the beta has been so great we wanted to make sure we at least offered an opportunity to make your own expert and informed choice about how to handle the upgrade.

Thank you Sir . I was looking at that post just now . LOL

I'll give that a try and post back .

Again TY , MR. GRIM

Okay , when installing system devices I'm still getting this " Windows cannot be configured on this machine " , then it restores back to build # 7068 .
I changed the cversion ini. file before I tried to upgrade this time .
My spec show the system I'm using and I have no clue what is going on .

That sucks, maybe you could fool it into thinking it was a repair install by taking the install.wim out of the 7077 build ISO and putting it in the 7068 build, worth a try if no one else has any suggestions.

Yes you just delete the one in build 7068 and replace it with the one from build 7077, sorry from the previous post I thought you were saying you could not find the install.wim.

Make sure you rename the ISO or save it in a different directory so it doesn't get overwritten.

Windows 7 Build 7057 Bugs
I found the culprit causing the lockup in 7057 x86. It was my screensaver, DreamAquarium.scr. Great screensaver but it appears to not function well in build 7057. http://www.geeksmack.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif I uninstalled DreamAquarium, now let's see if lockups go away....
