Preorder of Win7 Premium Requirments?

I've been using Win7 rc since it came out and I have an Image saved of my Vista home premium. Can I use either the saved image or the current installation of win7 rc ,with the preorder of win7, when I finally get it, and will it keep all of the applications I've already installed? Thanks

Windows 7 Ultimate X64

This has been asked before, and you can not upgrade from Windows 7 RC, you must have XP or Vista or get a full version and do a clean install or get a upgrade and do a double install of windows, so you have backed up your Vista as a image then install that or just back up your files and do a clean install, it's the best.

Win 7

You can upgrade from Windows 7 RC to RTM but it must be the ultimate version. If you reinstall your vista home premium image you can upgrade from that and have more options as to what version. Windows 7 Upgrade Guide: All Your Questions Answered
