Windows 7: RC is almost out of the door now !

RC is almost out of the door now !

I'm sure the RC won't be long now.

From the "Inside" Microsoft has requested a lot of testers to re-install Vista - presumably in preparation for installing the RC and last minute checking both the installer and the Vista upgrade process.

I know most on this board will "Clean install" but as the release is a Release Candidate Microsoft will of course want to test the Vista Upgrade process properly in as many scenarios as possible.

I'm not sure why they would do this unless something was "coming out of the door" really soon.

Cheers

Hope your right. Hope when they do their upgrade testing they don't find any problems.

Microsoft recommends users to do a clean install rather than upgrading from Windows 7 Beta (or any other builds) to Windows 7 RC build. It is not possible to upgrade your Windows 7 Beta to RC unless you bypass the check for the pre-release upgrade. Even though this is not recommended by Microsoft, below are the steps to bypass this check (from the E7 blog):

doesn't say I have to upgrade from Vista...that would be totally foolish as 70% of the people who will use Win 7 probally aren't even running Vista...
