Installed the Upgrade from within the RC

Just installed the student upgrade version of Windows 7 professional which came as a .exe file from within RC x64 7232. It allowed me to do a clean install on another partition without changing my RC.

So now I have the RC and retail installed and had no need to upgrade from vista or XP so I am happy .

No, he's saying he found the upgrade within a RC version he has, which is hard to believe.

Sorry badly written post. I meant I installed the upgrade for Windows 7 from within RC. It was an exe file that I downloaded it was not part of the RC

As soon as you get it set up as you like, be sure to use the great new Windows 7 Backup Imaging to Create an Image you safeguard externally, so you will never need to reinstall again, since the RC will expire and not be available to use for reinstall after June 1.
