Windows 7: Replacing W7 RC with W7 Pro...

Replacing W7 RC with W7 Pro...

I've been running the Release Candidate on my computer for a while but now have a legit version of W7 Pro available to me through school. Can I simply launch the setup of the new version or do I need to format my drive to get rid of the RC and start from scratch? Thanks.

The RC you have is ultimate, the legit version is pro. format and clean install is the option.
