Windows 7: downgrade from RC

downgrade from RC

The release candidate I am using is Windows Ultimate. When I purchase Win 7 I will get the home premium. Will I have any issues installing the home premium? I guess if I do a backup, then a clean install, everything should be fine??

Thanks!

You will have to do a clean install, and re-install your apps. Microsoft recommends its anyway, as do most of us.

You will be find. Just backup your data, and clean install - this will be necessary even if you change your mind and decide on the Ultimate version. Bear in mind though that some features which are present in the Ultimate version are not available in the Home edition.
