Install Windows 7 build 7600

Hi

At this time I'm usin windows 7 RC build 7201. And i wanted to know if I do a clean install of it again, if i can aktivate it with the old rc key.

My better question is, is it possible to upgrade my 7201 build do 7600? Or, will my key work, wich I aktivated 7201 when I use it to aktivate 7600?

greetings

7600 is rtm. We will not ask where you got it..

RC key is not valid with RTM. Do a clean install. Rearm every 30 days and/or buy the software.

Ok, then forget about the RTM :) And now, my fist question, can I just reinstall my 7201 RC copy and use the key what i aktivated it?

I think it will probably activate until next year when the RC stops working.

YW,

You can still get a RC key from MS if you need it.

Nope. Only build 7100 is RC. All other builds are just leaked builds which Microsoft didn't make for public download. Call it whatever you want, it doesn't really matter so long as you can use it.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.

I know that build 7600 isn't RTM, but nevertheless, it IS a new build, so it should have something improved. I think someone around here should have it installed and is able to provide feedback about it. Either one of them will be my main and only OS, I mainly do gaming on this PC, but also...
