no, unless there is some major bug discovered, however even i can tell them right about bug now that is not depended on hardware/drivers, just on certain option and at least for me is "showstopper" and i just cant wait how fast they will fix it after GA, when they will have 20% angry customers.

Thanks for clear answer but i should say what i understand...

You mean i dont need to format or reinstall Windows 7 if i have 7600.16385. When Windows 7 selling on 22 october i should buy that and activate my current windows (7600.16385) with that key which i may buy on 22 october ?

So yeah, this is the Build of Legend and what'll be selling in October.
I love that phrase "Build of Legend"

How can you activate it you need to buy it first, you need a serial key to enter which you haven`t got. When you buy it you can then enter your serial key provided, without a reinstall.
