Windows 7: Installing windows 7 with Magic ISO on my netbook

Windows 7 RC
Installing windows 7 with Magic ISO on my netbook

I've been enjoying Windows 7000 beta, but wanted to upgrade to the RC before it begins to expire on July 1st.

I want to do a clean install of Windows 7 RC by mounting the .iso file to Magic ISO within windows 7 Beta. My only question is will this actually work? How will MAGIC ISO install the windows 7 RC after the system reboots, and windows 7 Beta is deleted? I imagine Magic ISO and the windows 7 RC iso will be deleted to during that process since their both installed within windows 7 BETA? Thanks for any help.

Posta is other forums suggest this will not work.

If you have a USB thumb drive, you can put the ISO on there and
boot from the thumb drive. Another option is to put the ISO
on an external USB drive and install from that.
