Windows 7: How hard will it be to move to RC

13 Apr 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7100 RC x86/Windows XP SP3 x86 (Dual Boot)

It will be real easy to move to RC for me.I backup everything i want to keep on flash drive,stick the win7 disk in,reboot and clean install.Don't be lazy when it comes to operating systems and cry and moan about having to backup stuff and reinstall programs.The people that are so hell bent on doing an upgrade over a clean install are the same people posting here 3 or 4 times a day with new issues that nobody else seems to have.Do the math.

Well considering you should not expect things to move 100% smooth on a beta I don't see it as a big deal.

Even more so that Microsoft really only released 1 official version for people to download. Installing all those other versions are leaked etc and most likely not even officially supported by Microsoft.
